Deviant Minds shortlist revealed

We are delighted to announce our shortlist for the Deviant Minds crime and thriller competition.

Deviant Minds was a competition open to unagented authors with an unpublished adult crime novel or thriller. We received many brilliant entries to the competition and we have now – with difficulty – chosen a shortlist of five titles. The writers will at this stage be requested to submit their entire novel to the Deviant Minds team. The winning novel will be chosen and announced on 9th July. The Deviant Minds prize is an offer of representation at AM Heath and the promise of digital publication from Corvus, Atlantic Books.

And the shortlisted titles are:

HOLD YOUR TONGUE                     

BLACK WOOD 

THE BORROWED BOY  

ALL OF MY PASTS   

THE UNFORGIVEN DEAD 

We would like to offer a huge congratulations to our shortlisted writers, and a thank you to everyone who entered Deviant Minds. We were treated with some excellent reading and we wish the best to all the crime and thriller writers out there, as well as everyone who shared and promoted the prize.
