From contest website
The grand prizewinner of this years ABNA contest goes to a mystery/thriller writer. It’s exciting to see the administrators at ABNA mixing up the winning genres each year, although this contest is supposedly decided by people who read the excerpts and vote for the winners.
This year they divided the competition into five categories again, so the winners in the other categories also receive publishing contracts. Last year was the first time they started doing this since the contest started in 2008.
Let’s have a drum roll please for all the winners and wish them well in their new careers of authorship with a major publishing house.
Grand Prize Winner – Mystery/Thriller
D.M. Pulley for The Dead Key
Flora J. Solomon for A Pledge of Silence
Norma Darcy for The Bluestocking and the Rake
Chuck Grossart for The Mengele Effect
Carrie Ann Noble for The Mermaid’s Sister
