2016 Page Turner Contest Tally

Post by Deb Porter » Fri Jun 10, 2016 1:08 am

It's taken a while to get our first entry, but at last, the 2016 Page Turner Contest has one in the list. As always, we never expect to see too many entries until the final month, but I always appreciate earlier entries (to save the workload at the last minute).

DON'T FORGET - ENTRIES CLOSE SEPTEMBER 30

As always, it's fun to keep track of how many entries there are in the Page Turner contest each year (so you can keep an eye on the competition).

Here we go with the first official Page Turner Entry count:

Nonfiction Entries:
0 entries

Fiction Entries:
2 entries

(Number of entries as of June 10)

I'll keep the updates coming as entries are submitted, and seriously, for the sake of my sanity, please don't leave submitting until the last minute.

Blessings!

DON'T FORGET - ENTRIES CLOSE SEPTEMBER 30
http://www.faithwriters.com/myaccount/F ... turner.php

Entries have been painfully slow arriving this year (which has me a bit nervous about a last minute rush). Thankfully, another entry arrived today. The current tally of entries stands at:

Nonfiction Entries:
0 entries

Fiction Entries:
3 entries

(Number of entries as of August 16)

A reminder that we need a minimum of 15 entries per category for that category to be a valid contest. In other words, if we get 15 entries for fiction, that contest will have a winner. If we get 3 entries for nonfiction, there will be no prize awarded. So come on gang. Get those entries in.

Don't forget, one of the biggest draw cards for entering is the feedback you will receive.

And what if you win? You could end up published like Theresa Santy. http://amzn.to/2bpnmKn

The clock is ticking.

Blessings!

FINAL HOUR ...
http://www.faithwriters.com/myaccount/F ... turner.php

At a guess, this is probably our final tally (there may be one or two in the last hour, but it's unlikely). If you entered and did not receive an email from me, please check your junk/spam box. If there is no email regarding your Page Turner entry, please let me know immediately.

Nonfiction Entries:
11 entries

Fiction Entries:
21 entries

We had stated in the rules that a minimum of 15 entries would be required in a category in order for it to be a viable contest in that category. Fiction has safely reached that target, but Nonfiction missed by a fraction.

HOWEVER, the good news is that the standard of most nonfiction entries is very high, and that means we definitely have a contest. Choosing our winners this year is going to be exceptionally difficult.

So get excited Page Turner entrants. There will definitely be a Page Turner winner for both Fiction and Nonfiction.
