Costa Short Story Awards are here


Costa Book Awards - £3500 would get you a LOT of coffee!

Costa Book Awards – £3500 would get you a LOT of coffee!

The Costa Book Awards have been announced but not only that, so have the Costa Short Story Awards and they’re offering a whopping £3500 first place, £1500 second place and £500 third. They’re going to shortlist six authors and then put them through the ringer by making them attend an all expenses-paid event in January 2015.

I think I’d be an emotional wreck by then, and I’m not sure that my version of fiction would be a popular one, but I hope that someone I know will chance it!

About mattsylvester

Father of two beautiful daughters and married to the beautiful Karen, Matthew has been reading and writing fantasy and science fiction since he first read the Hobbit at the age of 7. Matthew was Features Editor, Technical Consultant and regular columnist for magazines such as ‘Fighters’, ‘Combat’, ‘TKD & Korean Martial Arts’ and ‘Traditional Karate’. These are the four leading martial arts magazines in the United Kingdom. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed 'Practical Taekwondo: Back to the Roots', which has been sold around the world. With regard to his martial arts background he has been studying martial arts since 1991. In 1995 he hosted Professor Rick Clark of the ADK and since then has been studying pressure points and their uses in the martial arts and on the street (initially as a Special Constable and as a Door Supervisor). All of this practical hands-on experience means that he is uniquely placed to write fight scenes that are not only plausible but some of which are based on personal or anecdotal experience. Matthew has had a number of short stories published by Fringe Works, KnightWatch Press, Anderfam Press and Emby Press.
