    E-book contest January 2018 - registrations invited

    Let's begin 2018's contests with an e-book. Excited? Register your name in a response to this thread, just saying that you would like to participate.

    What happens next? When the e-book contest is announced with a title, you have to write a chapter for it, in the order in which you responded here. So if you responded fourth, you will write the fourth chapter. If the previously registered member has not submitted his/her chapter within the time-frame given of 24 hours, then you will write the chapter (so that would be chapter 3). To make it easy to follow who is to write which chapter, I will provide a list of 5 or 6 registered members at a time in a response to this thread itself.

    The e-book title & relevant instructions will be mentioned in the contest announcement, this being posted on receiving 10 registered participants over here. As of now, no last date is being put here for the closing of registration.

    For suggestions & questions you may respond in the E-book queries & suggestions thread.

    I would like to make use of the opportunity given to write a chapter.i will definitely wait for the further details and conditions to be followed to write the e-book chapter.

  • #621870
    Let's begin the first e-book of 2018! The order in which the members will write the first five chapters is as follows -
    Chapter 1: Joyshree
    Chapter 2: Partha
    Chapter 3: Neethu
    Chapter 4: Natarajan
    Chapter 5: Neelam

    Note that in the main contest announcement thread itself, I will instruct each author to include a certain element in the chapter. So do not submit your chapter till I instruct which element to add.

    Please read the instructions, too, about word limits, etc. Participants have often missed out on the main prizes due to not following instructions & thereby making their entry invalid.

    The maximum word limit has been increased - as also the prize amount!

    I have lost interest. Withdrawing my name from the contest.
    Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.

    The re-arranged list now is -
    Chapter 1: Joyshree
    Chapter 2: Neethu
    Chapter 3: Natarajan
    Chapter 4: Neelam
    Chapter 5: Dr. Rao

    Joyshtree failed to submit the entry within the time limit. Hence Neethu will now write the opening chapter.

  • #622016
    Joyshree,

    You can write a chapter after the last registered member so far, which is Pramilakapahi. However, since you failed to submit your chapter, your entry will not be eligible for the main awards.

    Vandana, in #621870 above you has said: "The maximum word limit has been increased - as also the prize amount!".

    So what is the revised word limit and prize amount? Is it same as mentioned in contest announcement thread?

  • #622177
    Chapter Two submitted a few mintues back with a rough drawing.

  • #622187

    As registrations are still invited for participating in the e-book contest, I want to put my name forward to participate in the next chapter of the e-book contest. Please count my name too.

  • #622211
    Jignesh - this thread is for registrations only. There is a separate query thread. However, will answer your query here - yes, it is mentioned in the contest announcement thread. The maximum word limit was not revised within the same announcement. It was increased from the previous contest's limits is what I meant. Prizes also changed.

    Tahi & Suman - your registrations are accepted. Registrations will close on 8th January, midnight (IST.) You both will come after Pramilakapahi since Joyshree will not be participating.

    Tahi - please do not put smiley symbols & avoid words like 'yay'.

    Paresh, welcome to the e-book contest! You will submit a chapter after Suman so follow this thread to know the chapter number assigned to you. You also need to follow the contest announcement thread daily so that you keep track of the story & know from my response in that thread what you need to include in your chapter. Happy writing!

    Madam,
    Owing to some unpleasant event in my family, I won't be able to write a chapter for the e-book during the next 16 days. Hence, I am withdrawing my name from the Cuckoo-Clock's e-book Contest. Hope to participate in future e-book contests.

    Chapter five submitted at 9.55AM on 09.01.2018.
    The sketch is posted in the separate response (I apologize for that).
    The document attached to the chapter five response is attached wrongly and I request the concerned editor to delete the same.
