The Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

So, there’s been this small contest that Amazon has run for the past few years, and they’ve just announced the next contest! Basically, they accept a bunch of pitches for manuscripts. This contest has been upgraded in that there are FIVE possible winners, with a grand winner receiving a $50k publishing contract and the other four getting $15k advances. All told, pretty amazing. You should read up on all of it right now. NOW.

I’m really stoked on this contest and will be spending quite a bit of time working on my pitch due February 16th and then the rest of the time on the manuscript! It’s not even halfway edited so I’ve got a way to go. And even if I don’t make it. Well, whatever, because this gave me the boost to working feverishly on my manuscript.
