Ali ChrispAli says: “When I was told that I had won the competition, I was absolutely thrilled and could hardly contain my excitement on the phone. I have put a lot of time and effort into writing Home Comforts and it is so rewarding that my hard work has been recognised.

It was very refreshing to find a writing competition that was aimed at unpublished authors over 50, and I’m so happy to be given the opportunity to publish the book digitally with the all important marketing and sales support. I have had great fun creating the characters and storyline for Home Comforts and feel that it will appeal to a broad range of readers.”

Congratulations to Ali, and thank you to everyone who entered.
