Nice - I'd already created a thread for that in the Writers' Corner, but here it also fits well :)

Hey @Mark Lawrence, not sure if you read your mentions on here, but I figured I'd ping you regardless. This is the third SPFBO you've done, which is awesome, but I'm curious. Have you considered opening a contest for science fiction? A Self-Published Science Fiction Blog Off? There's a lot of great self-published SF out there, but I haven't seen any contests similar in scale to the SPFBO to promote it. Have you considered changing the genre for future contests?

You'll need someone passionate about SF to put the work in on that one. Someone who can identify and enthuse SF bloggers. Give it a go yourself?

That's not a bad idea! Sadly, I'm not well known enough to get serious bloggers on board, but I might know some other authors who could do so. I'll shop the idea around.
