Contest for Novelists

In case you haven’t yet heard of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award I thought I’d mention it—if interested, send in your manuscripts now; it looks like only the first five thousand submissions are accepted.

Someone at Penguin forwarded me the first link above; it was kind of her to think of me. But my own novel isn’t ready. Plus, even if it was, the idea of Amazon reviewers commenting on it makes me a bit nervous. But that’s just me.

So . . . is anyone reading this going to try?

  1. Thanks!

    The prizes are pretty cool I must say and it looks like the contest is pretty much judged by pro’s up until the final 10.


  2. What a great idea! Thanks for saying something about it. And how lovely that “someone at Penguin” thinks about YOU when they think about breakthrough novels.

  3. Yeah, it does look exciting. I’m wishing now that I had something ready!

    Heather, I’m not sure if this is the first time the contest is being held, but it is the first time Penguin is involved. I’m not sure if it will be an annual thing. Fingers crossed they do it again next year…

    And bloglily, You know what? That is really cool. Maybe you’ll have a manuscript to submit?
