Just a quick update -
I have signed up for Nanowrimo - not sure if will hit the 50,000 words and still unsure as to what I will put on the actual site of what i finish as I hope to enter Richard and Judy competition and won't be able to put it on Nanowrimo as it will disqualify me for the Richard and Judy competition.
Also there is and open door submission session at Angry Robot publishing until the end of the year. If you are unpublished and have a finished novel of the sci fi, fantasy and horror genre then get it sent in - see link below
good luck guys
