BrandyVallance-webBrandy Vallance won the 2014 Operation First Novel contest at the Writing for the Soul Conference, held Feb. 13-16. As the winner, Vallance received a $20,000 check, and her novel, The Covered Deep, will be published by Worthy Publishing.

A member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), Vallance is a graduate of the Apprentice course run by the Jerry B.

When the announcement was made, Worthy presented a mockup of the cover for The Covered Deep. The book will be released in 2015.
