If you are a Platinum 500 member, it's time to get that first chapter and synopsis ready for this year's Non-Fiction Page Turner contest. 2014 marks the eighth annual Page Turner Contest, and for many reasons, this is one contest you don't want to miss. Apart from stirring you up to get that manuscript finished (or at least started) you have the opportunity to get some great feedback once the contest is finished (you just have to ask). Some people enter the Page Turner for the feedback alone.
If you win, there's a cash prize of $800 (US), editing, publication by Breath of Fresh Air Press (if we receive at least 15 entries), and a plaque to say you are the Page Turner winner for 2014.Update - September 2:
The 2013 contest winner, Theresa Santy, is in the process of reworking the first edits of her manuscript, on the road to meeting a June 1 publication date. Next year, it could be you!
So here's where you can find out all the details, and submit your application: http://www.faithwriters.com/myaccount/F ... turner.php
(Non-Platinum members who would like to know more, you can find out here: http://www.faithwriters.com/page-turner.php
This is the biggest contest we hold each year, so if you are working on a non-fiction book, or even have an idea for one in mind, this contest is for you. (Yes, devotional books, non-fiction poetry collections, inspirational article collections are all acceptable.)
After you submit, I will contact you to let you know that your entry has been safely received. In the early days of the contest, I won't be checking the entries every day. So give me a week or two, and if I haven't contacted you, PLEASE contact me and ask me to check. There is a link to my contact page near the bottom of both the above pages. If I'm online, you can use the chat button for an immediate response.
As always, the Page Turner contest is huge, and most definitely worth entering. If you miss out this year, there won't be another non-fiction Page Turner until 2016.
