Lethbridge-Stewart (Credit: Candy Jar Books)Candy Jar Books have announced that they are soliciting for new writers to submit short stories in their Lethbridge-Stewart range, and also seek submissions for a 50th Anniversary book about the Brigadier:
For a limited period, Candy Jar Books are opening their Lethbridge-Stewart short story range to everybody (as long as you've never written for the series before). All you have to do is send a one line idea, and a short story you've written (any original short story, as long as it's a finished piece), so the editors can gauge your writing ability.

Please visit our website for more information and the pitch guidelines. Please note Candy Jar will not consider any submission that had not taken into account the information in the guidelines.

Lauren Thomas, publishing coordinator at Candy Jar, said:
We would expect prospective authors to be familiar with the brand. And to help them with that, they can visit the Candy Jar website and sign up to the newsletter, and receive a free PDF copy of The HAVOC Files in the process. Thery can also buy The HAVOC Files 3 and The Life of Evans for £17, and several other Lethbridge-Stewart books for £5.

Candy Jar is also looking for submissions for their forthcoming book that celebrate fifty years of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.

Shaun Russell, head of publishing at Candy Jar, said
The book will cover all aspects of the Brigadier's fifty-year history. It will look at his UNIT days, his appearances in comic strips, audio and, of course, books.

If you have an idea, then send it to havoc@candyjarbooks.co.uk with the words 'FACT PITCH' in the subject bar.
