2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

Do you have a manuscript or self-published novel that you think was overlooked by the mainstream publishing industry?  I do, a bunch of them.  You may even feel like it’s impossible to break down that wall separating you from traditional publishing nirvana.  Well, wipe that frown off your face, you sad, sad clown.  Amazon is now accepting entries for its version of American Idol, except it’s for writers… and it’s not lame.  Here are the details.

The 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest: Submit Your Novel

Amazon.com, along with Penguin Group (USA) and CreateSpace, is pleased to announce the fourth annual Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest, the international competition seeking the next popular novel. The competition will once again award two grand prizes: one for General Fiction and one for Young Adult Fiction. Each winner will receive a publishing contract with Penguin, which includes a $15,000 advance.

Manuscript submissions are now being accepted through February 6, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. (U.S. Eastern Standard Time), or when 5,000 entries have been received in each category, whichever is earlier.

Go to www.createspace.com/abna to register and submit your manuscript following the instructions on the entry form.
