Emma Champion given ‘Honourable Mention’ in the 46th New Millennium Writings Awards

useful reference

Emma Champion’s first ever piece of short fiction has garnered the attention of the judging panel in the 46th New Millennium Writings Awards, 2018.

The 6000-word story, entitled YOUR HUMAN, was entered into the competition last year, with winners and finalists announced in January 2019.

New Millennium Writings is a prize-winning literary journal based in Tennessee, US. Editor and Publisher for the journal, Alexis Williams Carr, contacted Emma via email (see image above) to congratulate her, saying “…you should be proud of your accomplishment…as an Honourable Mention, you placed in approximately the top 10% of our entries…” and thanked her “…for being a vibrant voice in the writing community.”

The panel of judges for the competition is comprised of poets, novelists, essayists, playwrights, screenwriters, editors, professors, and journalists, including: Marilyn Kallet, Doris Ivie, Laura Still, and New Millennium Writings founder, Don Williams.

Set in contemporary America somewhere in the not-too-distant future, YOUR HUMAN examines our need as a species for connection, and the role that technology plays in filling the void.

This is the first fiction writing accolade Emma has received, and serves as an exciting precursor to the release of her debut novel, TAIDEN’S TRUTH, due out later this year.

Emma Champion’s debut novel, TAIDEN’S TRUTH©, to be published in 2019

Following on from our last update, we are thrilled to announce that Emma Champion was offered a publishing contract in June 2018 for her debut novel, TAIDEN’S TRUTH©.

The cover and its illustration, along with the promotional tile (above) were digitally designed by Champion herself, as she collaborates artistically with her publisher, Austin Macauley PublishersTM.

It seems her years of marketing experience are being put to good use.

Austin Macauley have described TAIDEN’S TRUTH© as “an imaginative and entertaining read“, consisting of “well-crafted characters“, and a “worthwhile addition to the genre” of fantasy fiction.

Test audiences who have read TAIDEN’S TRUTH© say it is a story that stays with the reader long after, and that it is addictive. “I couldn’t put it down!” exclaimed one test reader. “You wouldn’t guess the writer had never written a book before,” stated another.

TAIDEN’S TRUTH© has been officially formatted, and is now with a team of proofreaders for the editing process. The book will be available in print (hardback and paperback), and as an eBook, and is due for release in 2019.
