We announce the winners of our devilish Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea writing and cover competition!

With feedback from April G Tucholke and her editor, Rebecca Lee up for grabs, you all dove into the competition and we were left swimming in a sea of entries you cheeky devils -  and a well done to you all! 



First prize goes to @A.C.Martins for her story Melancholia

Feedback from Rebecca Lee, April's editor: This was the standout winner for me - great writing, really intriguing and haunting atmosphere.



Runners Up

@ZoeShadownight's Alternative Cover 2 caught Rebecca's eye!
 Rebecca's feedback: Great use of typeface here - she really captures the gothic fading glamour.


As did @Kaitlyn_99's entry, Alternative Cover!
Rebecca's thoughtsvery clever use of the silhouettes as a background, there's a lot of depth in this cover and makes you look twice (I might flip the couple so the boy's head is on the left, so you read it more naturally, but that's a tiny point!)


@Megan.T's short story Whispers was also a runner up! 
Rebecca thought the story had: A really strong voice and a nice twist.


Well done to everyone who entered and if you need us, we'll be somewhere Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea!
