Call for your support

As most regulars here know, I was writing in solitude for a number of years and being a bit of a Luddite (and Skint to boot) I didn't have access to the web and all its wonderful tools. Thus said, I was a late comer to the world of blogging and E-zines. When I got my publishing deal, many aspiring authors got in touch to give me their best wishes and also to ask me for advice and my opinion on their writing. Wanting to pay forward some of my good fortune, I decided to set up a blog-site where writers of horror, crime, noir, mysteries and thrillers could share their work with like-minded readers/writers to get feedback and support. From that idea, grew THRILLERS, KILLERS 'N' CHILLERS, which has become a very popular venue for said people. Such that it's now more popular than my own blog!

Col Bury, an aspiring author from the UK has helped me with the site almost from its inception, and we now up-keep the site between us.

Saying all that, it's time for voting for the Editors and Predators E-zine Awards. If you think that Thrillers, Killers 'N' Chillers is worthy of a vote then you can do so here:

Please follow the instructions to log your vote on-line. The voting runs until 14th January so not much time left. Although you are asked to leave your email address, there will be no SPAM. This is for the purpose of ensuring that votes (multiple votes) aren't weighted in anyones favour, and all email addresses will be deleted once the voting is done (the instructions state this).

By the way, if you haven't visited TKnC take a look here: http://thrillskillsnchills.blogspot.com/

Cheers Paul.

I don't know much about this poll, or what winning or placing highly would mean, but I'm chuffed at the way people have rallied around.

Been there and done it, Matt. Your site was kind enough to publish my first piece and got me back on the writing scene. Well deserved to both you and Col.

Regards, David.

Been and done, Matt!

This blog is a regular on my 'let's-see'what's-going-on' calling-in point!

Hope it goes well, anyway!
