Winners - 2014 Page Turner Contest

Post by Deb Porter » Mon Dec 01, 2014 3:17 am

Congratulations to our 2014 champion Non-fiction Page Turner winner and two very worthy runners up:

http://www.faithwriters.com/page-turner-winners2014.php

As always, Page Turner entries were very slow arriving, but took off at the end to reach a grand total of 45 entries. The 45 entries were whittled down to 15 top contenders, and then our final three.

I am very excited about our first place winner. It will be a pleasure and privilege to publish it through Breath of Fresh Air Press (of course, if the author is willing to do that). That entry was fresh, creative, hit an ideal target reader, and was loaded to the max with publishing potential.

So that's it for 2014. Reports have been written for all those who requested them, and I will send those out over the course of this week.

Now you can all take a deep breath, enjoy a month of rest, and then get ready for the 2015 Fiction Page Turner, which will be launched at the start of January.

Love, Deb

Soooo humbled and excited to have been chosen. This book is the Lord's as I know that He is grieving for His lost, hurting women.
As a Penny I need a Betty to keep me on track and on schedule. Looking forward to wearing Deb's boot print on my butt over the coming months!

Ah Lori! So glad you have found out straight away!

I'll talk to you later about my reaction when I first read your entry (let's just say my poor sleeping husband knew I was kind of excited). :lol: Unfortunately, I'm a Penny too, so that may make for an interesting working partnership.

I've been bursting for over a week now to tell you! Congratulations.

Love, Deb

In the hospital with a severe case of sciatica, but I wanted to send a shout out to all the winners. It was a thrill to be ciounted if only for a second among such great writer's. A much deserved CONGRULATIONS!!

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

Praying for a fast recovery for you, Lillian. Sorry to hear about the sciatica. Very painful, I know.

Thanks. Deb. Even in the hospital I see God at work. He never ceases to amaze me. Also, was as I among the ones who requested a review? If I didn't, I'll accept responsibility for not doing so. I don't want missing deadlines to become a habit. ;-)

Blessings,

Lillian, you didn't, but I knew how pushed you were to get your entry in and basically assumed you would want one. :-)
