Last night at midnight the submissions period for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest began. For those of you who don't know what this competition is, basically you submit a pitch of your book, an excerpt, and the entire thing. Through a series of rounds contestants will be eliminated based on one of those items. If you get far enough your entire book will be read.

The winner gets a $50,000 advance and a book deal. And it is hard to win.

Last year I made it to the second round with Griffin's Song. When it came time to get my reviews from the experts both were very positive. But I still didn't make it to the next round. The main problem? Pacing.

So this year, since I don't have much time to write, I am going to do another sweep of revisions on Griffin's Song and submit her again. I don't think my other three books are ready to be seen. I highly encourage you to submit your manuscript - it's tons of fun.
