I’ve entered my novel IT STARTED BENEATH A SEPIA SKY into the Inkshares 2020 All Genre Manuscript Contest.

Unlike my other two novels which relied on preorders to secure a publishing contract, preorders are not necessary this time around, but are appreciated. Winners of this contest will be selected based on reader engagement. So, on that note, if you are up for checking out my posted chapters and leaving a comment or review, I would appreciate it!

This story is one that I’m incredibly excited to share with all of you. A pilot version of this story, that I have been editing alongside the novel, has already garnered a few accolades including:

  • Honorable Mention in the Writer’s Digest Annual Writing Competition(Script Category)
  • Semifinalist, Filmmatic TV Pilot Awards
  • Quarterfinalist, TSL Free Screenplay Contest

I hope you enjoy it!
