After almost 12 months of excitement and nail-biting suspense, it is time to announce the winners of the ninth annual FaithWriters.com//Breath of Fresh Air Press Page Turner Contest.
The 2015 Page Turner Writing Contest began during the first week of January, with the focus for the year being fiction manuscripts. Entrance to the competition was open to all members of the FaithWriters Platinum 500, and 42 submissions were received before entries closed on October 31.
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 winner of the 2015 Page Turner Contest receives:
" A cash prize of $500;
" Offer of publication of their winning manuscript by Christian publisher, Breath of Fresh Air (publisher of the new line of Mixed Blessings books)
" Final editing of their manuscript (through Breath of Fresh Air Press);
" Free publicity and marketing of their book on all FaithWriters' sites for twelve months following publication; and
" A special Page Turner Champion award plaque.
The two Page Turner runners up each receive:
