Self Publish or Perish

If any of you are dedicated bookworms, or if you writing is your thing, you might like to visit Shortbread Stories, an online community of short story readers and writers. It was was founded by author Robin Pilcher and bookseller William Thomson to develop a concept for publishing short stories.

One of their latest ideas is a short story competition, Self Publish or Perish, where members of the site are invited to submit original stories to be judged by the Shortbread community and the best story will be published.

The winner receives a self-publishing package worth over £3,000, which includes:

The winner will also have their book featured on ShortbreadStories.

Digital My Way is a key sponsor of the competition and we’ll be providing the winner’s website, as well as general advice about how to use your web presence to maximise the reach of your product.

If you’ve had a story hidden away for years that you’ve always wanted to publish now is your chance!
