On February 28th, we invited Random House debut authors, Rachel Hartman (Seraphina), Alexandra Monir (Timekeeper), and Elizabeth LaBan (The Tragedy Paper)—plus special guest Erin Clarke, editor at Random House imprint Knopf Books for Young Readers—for a live chat about selling your first book.
Inspired by the success of these debut authors, we asked you to write a scene in which you (or a character you create) have just discovered you’re going to be published. You wrote some inspiring entries and we are now happy to announce the contest winners.
Check out the winning entries below, and be sure to congratulate your fellow Figs!
Well done, everyone! You will each receive a prize pack from Random House which will include a copy of Timeless by Alexandra Monir, Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan and Dualed by Elise Chapman.
