After almost 11 months of excitement and nail-biting suspense, it is time to announce the winners of the tenth annual FaithWriters.com/Breath of Fresh Air Press Page Turner Contest.
The 2016 Page Turner Writing Contest began on January 1, and for the first time, entry was 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 1st place winners of the 2016 Page Turner Contest receives:
” A fabulous cash prize of $250 (US);
” The offer of traditional publication of their winning manuscript by Breath of Fresh Air Press;
” Free publicity and marketing of their book on all FaithWriters’ sites for twelve months following publication; and
