Following a yearlong reading period of over 110 debut novel submissions and an initial selection round of twelve semifinalists, we are proud to announce the three finalists for the 2014 VCU Cabell First Novelist Award:
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker (Harper)
Snow Hunters by Paul Yoon (Simon & Schuster)
Fort Starlight by Claudia Zuluaga (Engine Books)
Once again, we’d like to thank all of our volunteer readers, as well as the authors and publishers who submitted debut novels this year.
This year’s winner will be announced in early July, so please keep an eye on our Facebook page and blog!
