Crime can pay...

Crime writing, that is! If this is your genre, you might be interested to hear about a new opportunity to break into print. Creme de la Crime is a UK-based independent publishing company specialising in crime and mystery fiction. They are currently running their 'Search 2007' for talented new authors.

They say that at least five part-written novels will be selected by a team of experts from those submitted, and their authors will receive a detailed editorial report. Then at least two will be chosen for publication as part of Creme de la Crime's 2008 list.

Applicants have to submit a 500-word synopsis and the opening 5,000 words of a crime novel which will eventually total 70-80,000 words. The work must be unpublished, original and not under offer to any other publisher. The closing date for submissions is 28 February 2007.

For more information about Creme de la Crime's Search 2007, check out their website at And yes, as far as I can tell this opportunity is open to anyone in the world, not just the UK.
