UPDATE

As of February 1, 2018

Picture Book Winner Announced !

Feliciana Publishing is pleased to announce it has its first award recipient in our children's book publishing contest: Lullabayou  by Angie Dilmore in the Picture Book category.

We are still working through the possibilities with two finalists, for their submissions in the Middle Grades category.


Unfortunately we did not receive enough eligible manuscripts to meet contest requirements in the Young Adult category.


Please join us in congratulating the winner, the two finalists and everyone who took the time to submit.


We will update this site shortly after Mardi Gras with the other winner.


After that we will try to help you see how a book matures from draft manuscript to final published product.


Thank you to everyone who entered. It was an honor that you allowed us to consider your work.
