Top 15 Finalists - 2014 Page Turner Contest

Post by Deb Porter » Wed Nov 19, 2014 7:55 am

Once again, it has been a privilege to see such heartfelt entries in the 2014 Non-Fiction Page Turner Contest. To everyone who entered, thank you for sharing your hearts, experience and wisdom through your writing. I have laughed with you, cried with you, and cheered you on--every single one of you, whether you made it into the top contenders list or not.

But now, with all 45 entries read and rated, we have our top 15 Finalists (and I will sleep well tonight!).

Please note, the list is in alphabetical order only.

Once again, the competition this year was quite impressive. There were other entries that just missed out making it into the Top 15. In most cases, this was due to the entries listed below being just a little stronger at this point in time. (So if your entry is not in the list, don't be discouraged. You have taken a big step by preparing your entry and submitting it for this contest.)

Anyway, here are the Top 15 Finalists (in alphabetical order) for the 2014 Non-Fiction Page Turner Contest:

Altared Egos by Gail Raynor
Blessings from Italy by Milly Born
Doing the Stuff by Jennifer Dawn Dexter
Glimmers of God by Rebecca Real
God Is Who He Says He Is: Knowing God through the Valley by Stacie Snell
Hospitality - The Open Arms of God by Brenda Shipman
Lords Hill - A Place Only God Could Save Me From by Colleen Bruce
Piles of Stones by Debbie Roome
She Loved Sugar and I Love Salt by Francie Snell
Surprise in the Suitcase by Brenda K. Blakely
Teen Challenge - Repairer of Broken Walls by Leola Ogle
The Rock 'N Tree Ranch by Nancy K. Sullivan
Unmerited Blame by Michelle Mitchell
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes by Lori Dixon
Your Home is Not Your Castle by Lillian Rhoades

Congratulations to you all.


Winners will be announced December 1.

Congratulations Top 15. What an accomplishment. Cannot wait to hear who is #1.

To the 30 remaining submitters, we won too, simply because we participated.

Kudos all around.
Mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance. -Jude 2 NIV

Could not agree more, Judy. The act of preparing something to submit, fine tuning it, and taking the step to enter is a big deal.

The feedback reports have all been written for those who requested them, and they will be sent out once the winners have been announced.

Well done to you all!

To the top 15, how exciting; I wonder how any of you will sleep for the next 10 nights?!

To the remaining 30, well done on taking the chance to submit something, you are all so very brave. And remember, this doesn't necessarily mean it's the end of that writing . . . perhaps there is another avenue God has for it? Or maybe there was something in the preparation that He wanted you to see, to bless you. . . ?

I look forward to the announcement on Dec 1st. . . it's so exciting!

Blessings,

Helen Curtis :D

Congratulations to all the finalists!!! Only seven more sleeps! ;) And congratulations to all who entered! I really believe that success in this industry is going to come from a willingness to try, try, and try again. FaithWriters is teaching me to be resilient, and the feedback we receive will help us to make our manuscripts stronger. Lots of love to Mike, Bea, Deb, and the judges for making this contest possible!
