And the Winner Is...

The winner of the Synopsis Contest, and a five-chapter critique is:

ROSE MCCAULEY

Rose submitted the synopsis for her novel Perfect Trust.

Perfect, Kentucky . Can any place really be perfect—heaven on earth? James and Elizabeth (Libby) Rollins pack up and move with their two teenagers to the promise of a paradise located in the center of the state, hoping this town will hold the answers to fulfilling their lifelong dreams. A person from Libby's past threatens those dreams. Can Libby trust James with her decades-old secret? Can she learn to trust God to work things out when they seem at their worst?


Rose McCauley has been married for almost 40 years to her college sweetheart, and they have 3 children and three grandchildren. Rose is happy to be a long-time member of ACFW which has helped her to hone her writing skills. She is pubbed in 5 non-fiction anthologies and has turned her hopes and efforts to being pubbed in fiction next. She hopes you will visit her online at her website and her blog, where you can "Win a book contest each month!"

Congratulations, Rose!

Thanks to all the participants - I read some GREAT synopses and look forward to hearing about their eventual purchase by publishers.

Since we're so late in the week making this announcement, I'm going to wait until Monday to announce the next contest.

Keep writing!

Congratulations, Rose! The short blurb sounds great - I'm sure the full synopsis was excellent! Looking forward to seeing the finished product on bookstore shelves... :-)
