The entries have been read and the scores have been tallied. Our unique panel of judges, comprised strictly of readers, has determined our three finalists. 

And they are…

Ruth Reid's A Miracle of Hope
June Foster's Deliver Us
Carole Brown's The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman

Congratulations to all three!!

(Of special note, this is Ruth's second consecutive year to final in the Laurel. Well done, Ruth!)

Thanks to all our Laurel entrants for participating—the panel enjoyed reading each of your excerpts! 

The three finaling submissions will be returned to the same panel of judges for a final vote. 

The winner will be announced on 
October 22, 2014.
