-- Textnovel.com, LLC today announced that its Editorial Board has chosen "13 to Life: A Werewolf's Tale" by Saoirse Redgrave as the 1st Prize Winner of its 2008 Textnovel Writing Contest. This Award carries a $1,000 cash prize.
Stan Soper, founder, commented, "We are very excited to announce the 1st prize winner for our 2008 contest. "13 to Life" is a great piece of fiction. I am particularly excited that Saoirse developed this story by taking advantage of the unique characteristics of Textnovel: publishing new chapters in serial form and getting reader input on the direction of the story as it unfolded. Partly because of this approach, the characters are well-developed and interesting, their voices are unique and compelling and the plot is exciting. We are very happy to have such a great 1st Prize Winner."
Saoirse Redgrave commented, "I am thrilled and honored to have my novel selected as the winner of the 2008 Textnovel Writing Contest. It was a lot of fun using Textnovel to write "13 to Life" and it took my writing in a totally different direction. I am now finalizing my novel with the expectation of finding a publisher, thanks to the help of Textnovel."
