Amazon Breakthrough Novel

Only four days until the next cut. If you've entered the Amazon Breakthrough Novel competition, and if you've made the first cut, you'll find out next Tuesday whether you're still in the running. How exciting! But we hate waiting and not knowing, don't we?

I'm counting my lucky stars that I was included in the first 1,000 to move on to the next stage. I know some of my dear readers are in that same group. Congratulations to those of you who are. And best of luck on the next stage.

If you're in the competition, leave a comment and let us know so we can root for you. You might want to include your title, the genre, a general idea of the story, and what you plan on doing if you don't make the next cut. (Nothing gory, no wrist slitting or anything like that, okay?)

Also, tomorrow I'm going to post another item regarding marketing and social networking. I hope to hear from some of you regarding what you've done, what's worked, and what hasn't. But that's for later. At the present, tell us about your Amazon Breakthrough Novel experience.


  1. I'm in (until the 22nd at least) with my YA entry, Assignment 9.

    Congrats on getting through, Michael! And good luck with the next round.

  2. I remember reading a portion of that story, and I remember that I enjoyed it. Good luck to you, too!
