Computer Programmer Wins Publishing Contract

Computer Programmer Wins Publishing Contract

Christopher Wells from Mount Pleasant, SC, United States has won a publishing contract and audiobook production from Spectrum Audiobooks in the Page Turner Awards eBook Award for his Cozy Mystery, Murder at Rendsburg Resort.

Christopher entered the Page Turner Awards, where published and unpublished fiction and non-fiction writers of all genres can enter their writing to get discovered by high-profile judges from the literary world.

Murder at Rendsburg Resort is about mystery writer, Jill Pemberton, who must solve the murder of a guest at a remote resort where all communication is cut off with the outside world. She must do it before the killer strikes again.

Christopher has been an Agatha Christie fan for years and finally decided to take the plunge and write a mystery novel himself. He wanted to write a murder mystery in which the characters were stranded in an isolated location and forced to try and solve a murder in order to survive.

Christopher said, “The Page Turner Awards are a great way for emerging authors to get noticed and help spread the word about their work. I'm very honored to have been selected for this publishing contract and audiobook production from among the many talented authors who entered.”

The Page Turner Awards, sponsored by ProWritingAid, writers and authors the chance to enter unpublished or published fiction and non-fiction books, where a group of literary agents and publishers will read the work.

Kelly Rinne from Spectrum Audiobooks judged the eBook Award and was immediately captured by the narrative in Murder at Rendsburg Resort and offered Christopher a publishing contract and an audiobook production.

Judges are carefully selected literary agents and publishers who are looking for writers to represent and publish, plus influencers in the publishing industry.

Founder of Page Turner Awards and award-winning novelist, Paula Wynne said: “There are writers from all walks of life, from manual laborers to academics. All with stories to tell, most of them heart-warming and moving. We’re proud that our Awards celebrates excellent writing and helps writers and authors to get their stories discovered.”

Success stories from this year’s awards include three writers winning literary representation, six writers winning a writing mentorship, five writers winning a publishing contract and thirteen independent authors winning an audiobook production.
