The Staunch Prize - Shortlist

In February this year,we interviewed Bridget Lawless on the new Staunch Prize. The shortlist is out now! Congrats to all the authors and we look forward to reading your work.




The Staunch Book Prize team are delighted to announce that the six original novels shortlisted for the inaugural award are, in no particular order:
  • The Appraisal by Anna Porter
  • East of Hounslow by Kurrum Rhamen
  • If I Die Tonight by A L Gaylin
  • On the Java Ridge by Jock Serong
  • Cops and Queens by Joyce Thompson
  • The Kennedy Moment by Peter Adamson

To qualify for the shortlist, entries to the Staunch Book Prize had to fulfill the criteria of being a thriller novel in which no woman is beaten, stalked, sexually exploited, raped or murdered.
The Prize was launched in response to the prevalence of violence against women depicted in fiction and the need for this subject to be taken more seriously, especially in the wake of #MeToo.

In an impassioned speech at Variety's Power of Women event earlier this month, Natalie Portman called for "A year off from violence against women", challenging her audience to "Tell a new story".

Bridget Lawless, writer and founder of the Staunch Book Prize, says,
"In a climate where women are fighting to be heard and believed about real incidents of violence and sexual assault, more and more people are saying they are weary of depictions of women as victims and prey being presented as entertainment. The quality and originality of the entries we have received for the inaugural Staunch Book Prize has shown that there are some very talented thriller authors ready to shake up the genre. We can't wait to introduce audiences to our six shortlisted novels."

The Staunch Book Prize has received worldwide media coverage due to its timely and somewhat controversial theme. Despite criticism from some members of the crime writing community, the prize has been warmly welcomed by supporters, including readers, writers and those campaigning for an end to violence against women.

The winner will be announced on Monday 26th November, following the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
Author biographies and interviews, plus an extract of each shortlisted novel, can be found on the Shortlist page of the prize website from Thursday 1st November.

    1. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
      Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

  2. I agree that a second pair of eyes is absolutely essential to avoid rejections. Through WordsRU.com I was able to get top class editing and proofreading, manuscript critique. They also write excellent author profiles and book synopsis, so pretty much the entire package.

The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster call Dr OSOFO and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 9 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy andent to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to man, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.OSOFO for help now..Here his contact, WhatsApp him: +2349065749952 {or} Email him at: ( osofo.48hoursolutioncenter@gmail.com )

  17. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
