That difficult first novel

Check out this article in the Guardian on writing and getting published your first novel. It's enough to put you off trying. The advances seem to be either up to £12K for a two book deal or silly money if you have ever been on Big Brother or have slept with the prime minister. I haven't done either. Yet. I was wondering if I chopped off my leg it would help. (Did it for Heather Mills.)

Har Har.

There's a competition for first novels from Transworld and the Daily Mail.
a contract and at least 30K and publicity. Any genre. Judged by Joanne Harris and Lee Child. Date is 2nd July. 80 to 150K words.
