ENDING: Traditional Mystery Novel Competition
November 15, 2017
This contest is run by Minotaur Books (Macmillan) and the prize (last I checked) was a publishing deal including a $10,000 advance on royalties.
The original information page for this Event can be found here. (Scroll down if needed.)
NOTE: The Traditional Mystery Novel/Malice Domestic Competition/First Private Eye Novel Competition has changed their listing several times, causing confusion to anyone visiting my page(s) on the contest (even the due date may have changed by the time you read this). It also has not yet updated the year to indicate a 2017 due date, although the listings are supposed to vanish when the contests are over. This leads me to request that you visit the page directly for full information. It is also possible that this is some sort of scheme to get book submissions in specific genres, without the company ever having to actually choose a winner – but as this is a Macmillan company, I’m loath to believe that. At any rate, many apologies for any past confusion and for not having more info on this page.
