And The Winner Is . . . and other good stuff

So the winner of our Hook for Your Book Contest for mystery/thriller writers is:

*drum roll*

Basil Sands

This was his brilliant pitch:

At sixty-five below zero exposed human
flesh freezes solid within three minutes.Marcus Johnson
returned home to rural Alaska after the Marines longing to live his
life in peace and quiet, with no more war. Hidden in the
remote wilderness is a secret that was never meant to be

Mr. Sands has some self-epubbed books available on Amazon. His stuff is quite good so you should check him out here!

Remember, there are upcoming Hook for Your Book Contests coming up in fantasy, romance and historical fiction. For details, see this post. The first contest is for fantasy novelists and it runs in October. Spread the word!

Finally, I am attempting to join this Platform Building Campaign run by Rachael Harrie in the hopes of meeting even more brilliant writers online.

You still have till August 31st to sign up so if you're interested, go here.


  1. I'm in your thriller/suspense group, and wanted to stop by to say "Hi!" Hope to get to know you better through the campaign.

  2. Congrats, Basil! :)

    Yay, Lisa! I think the campaign has pretty much taken over the blogosphere now. I love it! :D
