Top 15 Finalists - 2015 Page Turner Contest

Post by Deb Porter » Sat Nov 21, 2015 5:22 am

It has been a privilege to be allowed a peek at the 41 manuscripts submitted to this year's Page Turner. To everyone who entered, thank you for sharing your creativity, imagination, and hearts with me. It has been an exhausting process (particularly with writing the reports), but a blessing at the same time.

Whether you made it into the top contenders list or not, you all deserve a big WELL DONE! If you are not on the list below, don't give up. If you requested feedback, and 99% of you did, you will receive that after the winners are announced. Keep honing your skills, seek manuscript assessment and structural editing, and keep aiming for excellence.

But for now, here are the top 15 finalists for the 2015 Page Turner Contest:

Please note, the list is in alphabetical order only.

Anomaly by John L. Owens
Game of Kings by Zach Fox
Hotel Hope by Ed Decker
My Heart's True Home by Diana Dart
One Act of Defiance by Rachel Malcolm
Sorrell's Gun by Rachell Barrett
Sow the Wind by Gary W. Ritter
Such a Time as This by Meghan Andersch
The Children are Dying by Dave Walker
The Girl Under the Porch by Leola Ogle
The Indentured Daughter by Ruth Ann Cornelson
These Walls by Tracy Nunes
To Dig Up by Tisha Martin
Twisted Ribbons by Debbie Roome
Voodoo Vanquishing Vixen by Harriett Ford

Winners will be announced December 1.

Happy Dance! Those titles sound awesome. I wanted to grab a few for my Kindle right now. I'm not a big title person either, so that's even more impressive. :D

Wow, thank you! Congratulations to you too! Great title for your book. Sounds like something I'd enjoy. :D

Congrats to all of the finalists! I hope many of these books are one day finished and published. I think there are few things as difficult as finishing a book, but books change people and so they change the world.
