Have you written a novel that’s in search of a publisher? Whether your book has been sitting in a drawer for a decade or you just finished it last week, this might be your chance. The 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award is open for submissions, and it’s going to be a dream come true for a handful of writers. One Grand Prize winner will receive a publishing contract with an advance of $50,000, and four First Prize winners will each receive a publishing contract with an advance of $15,000. Categories include General Fiction, Romance, Mystery/Thriller, Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror and Young Adult Fiction.
Yes, a zillion people are going to enter from all over the world, but it’s as good an excuse as any to polish up that opus. For more info, go here.
