Just sticking my nosey head in to wish all the contestants the very, very best in the Page Turner Writing Contest.
For those who have entered, you have done well. It's no mean feat to write a first chapter and a synopsis. I'm dying to know who the winner will be, and will be praying that God's name will be glorified in the work of both the winning entry and all the others who do move ahead and become published, however long that might take.
I know several entrants have 'only' written the first paragraph, ie they've not got the whole book done yet - don't let a 'whole book' overwhelm you. Keep writing, one chapter at a time, just as you've written this first chapter.
Don't stop now, waiting for the results. Plod on, complete the work, and whether or not you win, send it somewhere for publication.
Congratulations, and may God's richest blessings be on you all.
