Hugh Howey Booktrack Competition now Closed

The Hugh Howey Booktrack Competition has officially closed!


We've received hundreds of entries, and have been excited by the quality, and sheer amount of hard work that went into these Booktracks.
We were thrilled that so many of Hugh Howey's readers, and passionate fans of Booktrack, decided to enter the competition. There were also many people who were new to Booktrack, but ended up absolutely loving the experience. Some have even gone on to publish more of their stories on the platform.
We now have a month to choose the ten finalists (and two grand prize winners). The initial judges and Hugh are very much looking forward to starting the big job of reading these entries and selecting the cream of the crop.
