This has become a pretty big deal. Starting Jan 23 you can submit your novel for competition for the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. There are two categories, one for general fiction and one for YA. Details can be found at the below link. Grand prize for both categories is a publishing deal with Penguin and a pretty nice advance ($15,000).
I’ll be submitting my first manuscript CHASING AFTER VANITY in the general fiction category. Anyone else thinking about entering?
