It’s January, and it’s FaithWriters. You know what that means – right?

The ninth annual Page Turner Contest, sponsored by FaithWriters and Breath of Fresh Air Press, is accepting submissions! And this year, the focus is fiction. All Platinum 500 members are eligible to enter this fabulous contest, created just for you.

Maybe you’ve got a half-written manuscript gathering dust in the bottom of your wardrobe. Perhaps it’s something you wrote during NaNoWriMo last year. It could even be an idea that’s been brewing in the back of your mind for years. Whatever the stage of your novel, this contest is just the spur you need to get writing and polishing – and we will even give you until the end of October to get your entry ready.

Sound good? Well, here’s what you need to do. First of all, if you are not already a Platinum member, upgrade your account. Next, write, edit and polish at least one chapter of your manuscript. Once that’s done, prepare an overview of the planned book. Combine the book overview and first chapter in one Word or RTF document, and you’re all set to enter.

One entry will be chosen as the FaithWriters Page Turner Champion for the year, with the author receiving*:

1. A fabulous cash prize of $500 (US);

2. The offer of traditional publication of their winning manuscript by Breath of Fresh Air Press;

3. Final editing of their manuscript (through Breath of Fresh Air Press);

4. Free publicity and marketing of their book on all FaithWriters’ sites for twelve months following publication; and

5. A special Page Turner Champion award plaque.

Two Page Turner runners-up will each receive*:

1. A cash prize of $50 (US);

2. A special Page Turner award plaque; and

3. Consideration for future publication by Breath of Fresh Air Press
