The Best One Sentence Novel Pitch

Congratulations to the winners of this week’s writing contest! They are listed below.

But first, a bit about our contest series. Every week we are going to have a contest on our Facebook Page. The contests will change from week to week, but the winners will always be published in the magazine. The contest winner and the runner up are chosen by a voting system, and then the editors of Authors Publish will select several additional entries from the rest to be the Editor’s Choice winners.

Below are all the winners of this week’s contest. This week the challenge was to pitch a novel in one sentence.

The next contest starts at 9 am PST on Saturday.
