Category: News

WAYNESBORO, PA, March 13, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/—Litmocracy is always looking for the best minds and the most talented writers that it can find. The free writer’s workshop and independent publisher uses innovative technology and a unique voting system to allow readers and other writers to find the best writing available, so any writer has the ability to be discovered. Now Litmocracy is looking for the best writers that they can find with the help of best selling author Steve Hockensmith.

Hockensmith is a former New York Times bestseller for the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls. He has won or been nominated for numerous awards for his mystery fiction, including the Edgar Award, the Shamus Award for Best Short Story, the Anthony and Barry Awards, and the Audie Award for best first novel for Holmes on the Range, the first book in his acclaimed Big Red and Old Red detective series.

“I’m thrilled that Litmocracy has launched a Steve Hockensmith Mystery Contest. Good luck, entrants! May the Golden Hockey* soon be yours!” Mr. Hockensmith commented, then added with tongue in cheek: “*Note: There is no such thing as a “Golden Hockey,” and we don’t know why Mr. Hockensmith seemed to think it was the contest’s grand prize.”

The humorous, talented author recently released Nick and Tesla’s High-Voltage Danger Lab with Bob Pflugfelder, already a BEA Buzz Book and released a sequel to his best seller called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After with Quirk Books. Now he and Litmocracy are on the hunt for the best short mystery stories available. The contest is free and there are 15 prizes in all, including cash, autographed books, and e-book copies of Hockensmith’s widely acclaimed Cadaver In Chief. Each entry can contain up to 10,000 words.
