If you missed the announcement this week on our social media/website, both the "Windows into the Multiverse" writing contest AND the Best Bookstagram Contest have WINNERS!
Let's start with the writing contest: IT WAS A TIE! We had a bunch of wonderful submissions for our "Windows into the Multiverse" writing contest. So many in fact that we couldn't choose just one! The two stories chosen could not be more different, but they both incorporated the image into their writing in a way that set them apart. Both have won the FULL prize ($25 Amazon Gift Card) and will be featured in the Spring Edition!
J. Phillip won with his Science Fiction/Thriller, "Dangerous Trek". He can be found at his website https://bio.fm/jphistudio or on Amazon under "J. Phillip".
Mary Rice won with her Inspirational Fiction story "Through the Window". She can be found at her website MaryRiceBooks.com or on Facebook under "MHRiceBooks".
Next, the Best Bookstagram Contest was won by a landslide victory of 261 votes! Congratulations to Linda Brendle and her Kitty, whose cuteness stole the show for sure. She will also receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card and have her Bookstagram featured in the Spring Edition. You can find her on Twitter under @LindaBrendle.
But Wait! There's More!
Thanks to a slew of last minute entries, voting has begun for the Book Fan Art Contest!

Cover Art Contest Submissions Have Begun
For the March 20th Spring Edition, we will be holding another Cover Art Contest for all of you to participate in. This was the contest that had the most entrants and we anticipate it to be a popular contest again. We ask that you stick to CLEAN Cover Art. That means absolutely no shirtless/headless men. For the love of chocolate pudding! Why is a cover like that a fad anyway!?! That goes for shirtless/headless women too, but I think that probably goes without saying...Can a cover DESIGNER participate? Of course. Can an author participate even if they did not design their cover? Yep. Is there a limit on the number of covers that I submit? Please, only send one cover per person/design company. Does it matter what genre the book is? No, unless...see previous comment about shirtlessness. Submissions will begin February 1st and end February 12th. Voting will begin February 13th and go through February 26th. (See our website for the small print) We are limiting the voting to 10 submissions that will be selected by the Clean Fiction staff. Otherwise, the voting page might go on forever. The winner will receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card and the other nine voted on covers will be ranked and included in the magazine similarly to what you see on the previous page. The winner will also receive a certificate that they can print out and hang on their wall, book cave, library nook...you get the idea. How do I enter? Simply email CleanFictionMagazine@gmail.com the following: Your Cover Art, Your Name, Name/s of the Cover Artist, Title/Author of the Book (if it is not clearly visible in the image), and an Email Address (for contact purposes).
