Free Best/Worst First/Last line writing contest

Forwarded from the Ellora's Cave Editors' blog:

"Last Line" Contest

Most everyone has heard of the Bulwer-Lytton contest for the best Worst Opening Line of an imaginary novel. So we are going to run a contest for the proposed best and worst LAST line of an imaginary book. There will be four categories:

1. Mystery novel - Best last line: A final sentence that is moving or heartstopping or just so perfect for closing a mystery.

2. Mystery novel - Worst last line: A silly or parody-type or just-plain-awful ending for a mystery story, something that leaves us groaning or laughing or screaming.

3. Romance novel - Best last line

4. Romance novel - Worst last line

So put on your creative or goofy thinking caps, invent some really unique and imaginative last lines for ficticious fiction books!

Post your entry (or entries) in the comments here on the blog. We'll scoop them all up by September 20 and announce the winners the following week.

Prize: Well, we'll send you a book - either a mystery or a romance!

Oh, yeah, we're also open to suggestions on what to name our contest.
