A novel that I’m writing has won second place in the Joanna Catherine Scott novel excerpt competition! The prize is part of the Soul-Making Keats Literary Competition, a global contest.
Judges based their decisions on the first twenty pages and a synopsis. In my financial thriller, Coin Flight, a not-so-innocent salesman must stop his boss from pulling off a million dollar bitcoin scam. I’ll post an excerpt from my manuscript at some point, but in the meantime a quick overview of my book is here.
All of the prizewinners are listed the Soul-Making Keats Literary Competition’s website here including Ellen Herbert’s Paris in the Dark and James Kingston’s The City Island Messenger. Congratulations to all, and I hope I get a chance to read their works.
Award winners are invited to read a sample of their work at a reception in San Francisco this March. Although I probably won’t be able to make the trip, it’s an honor to be recognized.
The contest is named for Joanna Catherine Scott, author of Indochina’s Refugees: Oral Histories from Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, among several well-regarded works.
