I am so excited to announce the winners of the Winter 2023 Windows into the Multiverse Writing Contest! When I chose this Kinkade-esque image, I wondered what the fabulous authors of the Clean Fiction Community would do and BOY did you all deliver! Thank you to everyone who submitted.

Winter Bookstagram Contest: While there’s no formal definition for the term, a Bookstagram can be loosely defined as a book lover’s Instagram account that features a collection of artistically composed photos of books. (Credit: Penguin Random House) For the purposes of our contest, a Bookstagram is defined as an artistic photo of a book set in a square format. Do I have to be the author or designer of the book cover to submit? Nope. A photo of your favorite book is just fine. Does my photo have to be recent? Nope. Feel free to submit a photo you have taken in the past. We ask that you don’t submit a photo that has already appeared in past contests. May I submit more than one photo? Please submit only one photo per person. Submissions will begin October 30 and go through November 11. (Submissions are completely FREE) Voting will begin on November 14 and go through November 26. (Voting is also FREE) See our website “Contest” page for the small print. The winner will receive a $20 Amazon Gift Card and the other Bookstagrams will be included in the magazine along with their submission information. The winner will also receive a certificate with a special 3D printed medallion. (Available in the USA/Canada only) Simply email email@example.com the following: Your Bookstagram Photo (In JPG or PNG format), Your Name, Book Title, Author’s Name, Social Media Handle, and an Email Address (for contact purposes).

May your day be bright and your reading be epic!
