It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. So without *much* further ado, here are your winnahs!
Taking the judges’ top-spot by a unanimous decision is Flour House by Kimberly Karalius! *Applause* Of Flour House, Celeste Selene said, “Kimberly’s Flour House included great visual descriptions, excellent character development, and kept readers hooked on the plot from beginning to end.” Alex B. added, “The way the story was written was beautiful. I could feel, see, hear, and taste everything that was described. It was amazing; everything flowed smoothly.”
Our two winners randomly selected from the completed entries are Happenstance by Angela Pupino and Screen by Desie! *Raucous cheering*
The judges wanted to give Project Marbles by Tateni Marunda Tareto Urio an honorable mention. Jina <3 said, “I thought Project Marbles was so good because the of the detail and how unique it was. I’ve never read anything like it. I felt like I was inside the character’s (weird) head.” and Rory the Ravishing said, “Project Marbles reads like classic science fiction much like the works of Asimov and Wells. Rather than simply emulating older pieces to keep the reader’s attention, though, the author throws in…stylistic writing to freshen the genre.”
