I received an email that Amazon.com and Penguin Group USA announced the 3rd annual Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.CreatSpace will host the submission platform.
So what am I doing? Procrastinating. The submissions start January 25th to February 2/7 or when the first 5,000 entries have been received.
The prize is from Penguin, $15,000 advance and a full publishing contract with them. The categories are general fiction and young adult fiction, unpublished and self-published novels accepted.
I don't think I can finish my novel, run through it one last time and get it proofed before that. I don't even know if I want to try. I was acquainted, through a critique group I was in briefly last year, with the winner of last years contest.
I thought I'd just share that with anyone else who might be interested. Here's the website to get started. click here
