Welcome to the book blog of writer and creative writing tutor, Diane Paul.

Thanks to the publishers and kind PR people who send me books and releases about their clients' books for review. Press releases and review copies of fiction and non-fiction are always welcome. (No sci-fi, fantasy or erotica please.)

Due to the barrage of requests from self-published authors for reviews, I'm unable to deal with them all, although I'm sometimes drawn to non-fiction for the subject matter. And because I love print books, the smell, the touch of the paper and the sight of the words, I don't have an electronic reader or review e-books.

E-mail to: bookblogforbookworms@keywordeditorial.com for the postal address.

Six-word Story Comp

How would you like to win a week at an Arvon writing centre? Poet Karen McCarthy has the tough job of choosing a winner from the entries for the Arvon Foundation's story competition. And this year, the theme is one of those six-worders that crop up in the media every now and again.

Remember Hemingway's famous six-worder? 'For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.' Actually, I've never read one as good as that. If you think you can top it - send it to: competition@arvonfoundation.org or tweet to @arvonfoundation.  The closing date for entries is 1 September 2010.
