The time has arrived… Martyn Bedford has chosen a winner!
Congratulations to Heartless by G. Gómez! Of Heartless, Martyn said, “In Heartless, the idea of two souls switching bodies during a heart transplant is a brilliantly original set-up and so chillingly told it left me feeling quite spooked! The prose is tight and well-controlled and yet manages to convey the emotional power of the situation . . . every ounce of the narrator’s terror and panic comes through.”
He also chose a runner up: Sixteen Going On Six by Kelsey Rebecca Martyn said, “What I liked most about Sixteen Going On Six was the voice the writer created for the boy-turned-girl narrator, the touches of humour in the story and the fact that, by the end of this opening chapter, I was completely hooked into wondering what happens next.”
And congratulation to everyone who participated. We had some brilliant entries, and we’d love to see them up on Figment!
