Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest: Did you Enter yet?

It’s time for the annual Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest. I entered yesterday. So much for taking a break! They’re giving away two awards, one in general fiction and one in young adult fiction. You can enter until February fifth. If you haven’t entered yet, there’s still time. The winner in each category gets a $15,000 advance and a publishing contract with Penguin!

These YA pitches went on to win, one last year, and one the year before. Here are the general fiction winning pitches. You can find the forums here. If you have questions, comments, or are just looking for support, this is the place to be!

The first round of semi-finalists will be announced by February 24th, so it won’t be too long of a wait. Not like Harlequin’s SYTYCW contest, which I am also waiting to hear back from. I think they say the winner for that contest will be announced around the start of March. At least I have something else to focus on while waiting to hear back from the agents who have my manuscript.

  1. I was going to enter but the rules state that you cannot shop your book out to any other pub houses or agents during the review process. And I already have my book in one agent’s inbox. Fingers crossed.

    But best of luck to you!!!
