Thursday 25 June 2020 was supposed to be the Pen to Print Awards ceremony, unfortunately we have had to postpone the ceremony, but this hasn’t stopped us announcing the winner of The Book Challenge 2019 on Facebook.
All the finalists worked on their idea for a novel with a writing professional as a mentor during 2019; after the 12 months their completed books were judged by our panel of writers: crime author Howard Linskey, local author Elaine Spires and author and editor Dan Cross.
All eight finalists will now have to opportunity to be published by New Generation Publishing, so we shall see all their books for sale soon!
Congratulations to all the finalists for successfully completing the challenge we look forward to reading your published novels.
We are thrilled to announce the winners!
