Can't believe I won the Pitlochry Quaich for a crime novel
Today I got a phone call. At first I thought it was one of those nuisance callers we've been getting recently who want to sell you a conservatory (we live in a flat), a new kitchen (our flat is rented), a trip to the Moon (too busy). So, I picked up the phone with a great deal of trepidation and guess what, it was good news.
I have won the Pitlochry Quaich for the opening and synopsis of my crime novel Vile City.
I can't believe it and am currently in a state of shock.
I'd like to thank Writers' Umbrella, the online writing group I belong to. It was through them that I was eligible for this competition.
