The NaNoWriMo first time author contest for 2012 was tough. Both manuscripts were excellent reads, and boy are you in for a treat when both are finally published! In the end, though, we could only choose one, which was a tough job when both were so very good and both manuscripts were so different from each other. Seth Swanson wrote a gripping, immersive tale in Impervious, while Janna Jenning’s A Grimm Legacy was pure twisted fairytale fun. In the end we chose the latter because it was simply closer to being a finished project. Both manuscripts, however, had me eagerly looking forward to picking them up in the evenings and finding out what happened next; chosing just one was quite difficult.
Next steps for both books:
- Each will receive detailed beta reader feedback
- Each will receive a cover
- Each will receive proofreading after the final draft
Congratulations to both authors. Watch for these two…they are going to produce some kickass books.
