Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award

Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award competition is now open. If you haven't heard, Amazon, Penguin and ClearSpace ran this competition last year, awarding $6,500 to the winner. This year, the prize money runs to $15,000 (in the two categories of General Fiction and Young Adult Fiction). What makes it great for undiscovered authors is that it will now be open for even self-published authors.

The submission period runs from January 25th through February 7th. So if you're close to finishing that novel you've been working on or have one that you've self-published, dust it off and submit it!

Again, all you have to do to get to the site is click on the title of this post. Me, I'm getting back to work on "Homebrew"!
