Another month, another fistful of prizes to hand out! Your votes are in and we’ve finished reading all of the fantastic entries for the June Mystery Contest. Each entry was outstanding–and believe us, we’ve read a lot of good fiction in our days, so we know good when we see it. But as always we’ve got to narrow it down to three lucky (and talented!) writers to go home with the big trophies. And here they are:
1st Place, $50 Gift Card to Amazon.com and 10,000 Scribophile Coins
Alex’s tale of a sweet girl gone deadly impressed us with its sharp prose, well-rounded, interesting characters, and intriguing premise. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this work as it grows!
2nd Place, $25 Gift Card to Amazon.com and 5,000 Scribophile Coins
Kirsten’s detailed and idiosyncratic characters crackle in this tantalizing beginning. But what happened to Ridley?
Paul’s detailed work is a great setup for a potentially engrossing mystery. The protagonist has enemies lined up and waiting to take him out–what’ll happen next?
Join us in congratulation the winners on their scratchpads. Thanks to everyone who entered and gave us a great read, and if you’re still itching to earn some dough, the July Poetry Contest is up–and it’s open to ALL members, so get writing!
