Richard and Judy will lead the selection process, along with editors at the book’s future publisher Quercus, plus experts from literary agency Furniss Lawton. The winning writer will receive a publishing deal worth £50,000 from Quercus for the rights to sell their novel around the world.
The Richard and Judy Book Club website which launched this summer, will continue to offer readers a forum to exchange thoughts with both Richard and Judy and the authors themselves.
To help inspire budding authors to enter their competition, Richard and Judy have also asked some of their favourite writers to share the lessons they’ve learnt over the years on the website – on the news section, for further tips and advice and follow the Book Club’s Twitter and Facebook pages for regular updates.
