I wish I could give you both a big hug. You've still got a couple of days. Even if you think it's not perfect, still enter. You never know.

Love, Deb

No worries, Ben. I'll explain when I send the rating sheet out to you all on Thursday (with the list of entries). The judging for Best of the Best isn't the same as the regular Challenge, though. There are some similarities, but there are less categories to rate, and the last category requires the j...

Thanks Chrissy. Got your emails. Just haven't had much time to check email for the last couple of days. Hoping to get back into action later today (if my headache ever goes away).

Two pages is propably a tad on the lengthy side for the synopsis. See if you can trim it down just a little.

Don't worry too much, though. I'm being as flexible as possible.

Go for it Dara.

As for length, it doesn't really matter. Just make sure that you set up a good, page-turning first chapter.

Highest Ranked Entries for CHILDREN

Hi everyone. The Children's Challenge was a huge stretch for many writers, I know. Some people didn't quite grasp the concept of writing for children, rather than about children, and I think a lot of people discovered that it's not so easy getting in touch with your inner child. Even so, the importa...

Joanne, I'm sure you would handle it as well as I do (which means you would probably be rocking in the corner on a regular basis). :wink:

Well, I can see I'm totally unnecessary here. LOL. Joanne got it all right. The 30th June is the final date for the 2007 Fiction Page Turner contest. The 2008 contest will be announced on the 1st January, and will be for Non-Fiction. We really do want to run it as an annual contest/reward for 500 me...

Nothing to forgive, love. And don't worry about your entry being too early. You're in, and that's the main thing.

Yes, Lynda is right. This year is fiction. Next year will be non-fiction, but even so, the Page Turner contest probably won't work terribly well with individual devotions/stories. That's because the first chapter has to be something that really grabs the reader and makes them want to keep reading. S...

New one please Janet. I used the old ones in the last book, and it's time for everyone to make sure that it is up to date. So if you have your old one on file, just check it to make sure it still sounds okay, and send it through. If you need to update it, do that and then send it through to me. Than...
