Compilation Book Prize Winner
Expected Release Date – September 2020
You won’t want to miss this collection. Heather Mateus Sappenfield writes a character driven and richly nuanced book that reveals humanity and all its complexities. The vivid descriptions and attention to detail will pull you into the story so much so that you will feel as if you, too, are in the scene. And isn’t that what makes reading so grand?

Compilation Prize Honorary Mention
Unlike the poetry chapbook contest where we had a lot of close winners, the Novel Book Prize submissions didn’t ever rise to the level of excellence that V Press LC desires to publish. Three were close–but in the end, each required too much work. In the end, V Press LC decided that only the best of the best should rise to the top. It’s in our logo. And it’s our philosophy. We encourage everyone who submitted to fix their flaws and try again. And we thank you for submitting.
