After almost 12 months of excitement and nail-biting suspense, it is time to announce the winners of the eleventh annual FaithWriters.com/Breath of Fresh Air Press Page Turner Contest.
The 2017 Page Turner Writing Contest began on January 1, with entry open to both Fiction and Nonfiction manuscripts. Entrance to the competition was open to all members of the FaithWriters Platinum 500.
Entries comprised a book proposal, outlining the planned work overall, together with the first chapter of the manuscript. Judging was based on how well each entry worked in a number of key areas, including creativity, freshness, craftsmanship and, most important of all, page turning power and potential for publication.
The 2017 Page Turner Contest Champion receives:
1. A fabulous cash prize of $400 (US);
2. The offer of traditional publication of their winning manuscript by Breath of Fresh Air Press (which includes editing of the manuscript, if published by Breath of Fresh Air Press);
3. Free publicity and marketing of their book on all FaithWriters' sites for twelve months following publication; and
The two Page Turner runners up each receive:
1. Two x one-hour, live online, mentoring sessions with Deb Porter through Finesse Writing and Editing Service.
2. Consideration for possible publication by Breath of Fresh Air Press
