Tell Me About it. Maybe I’ll Give You A Book

In One Too Many Blows To The Head, Detective Dean Fokoli is trying to start a new life as an honest man. It’s tough for him to do. Although he wants to forget the past, others can’t.

I love a flawed character. I love the “realness” of it. Rather than making me lose interest, flawed characters who try to improve endear themselves to me.

So here’s the deal: send me a story – 500 words or less – about a character looking for redemption, seeking a second chance, trying to start over – you get the idea.

Rules:

  1. 500 words or less (I already said that but I’m saying it again)
  2. Prose should be lighthearted and humorous. It’s the holiday season and I don’t want to get all suicidal.
  3. Material needs to be original (That goes without saying, of course.)
  4. Deadline is December 15.
  5. Send story to jbkohl@jbkohl.com

First Place gets a signed copy of One Too Many Blows To The Head and a signed copy of The Deputy’s Widow. Second Place gets a signed copy of One To Many Blows To The Head.

Both winners will have their material posted on my blog, “Toeing and Typing the Line.”

But wait, there’s more! I love meeting writers. I love hearing about other writer’s methods for work. Winners will be presented with a guest appearance on my blog to give us the lowdown about writing habits, methods of success, opinions on writing, aspirations, etc.

So get to it! I wanna hear from you. –J.B. Kohl
