There are three judges for the contest: myself, Thorn Scully writer and editor, and an avid reading fan of historical fiction who chooses to remain anonymous.
What we know is that the sentence begins a piece of historical fiction (year 2000 or earlier), that it is your own work published or still in progress, and that it is in one of these genres–mystery, suspense, thriller.
So far there are some very good contenders for the prize of $100. Don’t be shy about entering.
