 Win a book on the forum!

Advance warning that on Monday morning US time, I'll post a multi-part question on the Fiction Writing forum for your chance to win a book. All the details will be posted at that time. The contest is only open to US and UK residents unfortunately.

If you haven't already set up a free username to participate on our forums, it's quick and easy to set up. Come and join in the fun!
