Route Publishing's inaugural competition to find the best novel by a Yorkshire-based writer between 18 and 30 has been won by Sophie Coulombeau

WM ran a story about the launch of the Arts Council-supported Route Young Author Award, from independent Yorkshire publishing company Route, in the March edition of Writers' News.

Rites, the winning novel from 27-year-old Sophie, who lives in York, will be published next year.

Rites is about a group of teenagers who make a pact to lose their virginity. Route editor Ian Daley said: 'We are thrilled to be publishing this book and to be working with Sophie. She's a great talent, with an exciting future in front of her. The book manages to have that rare combination of being both richly complex and a riveting read. The pages simply turn themselves.
'I'm confident that this is the first of many great books that Sophie will produce.'
