Amazon searches for a ‘Breakthrough Novel’

Do you have an unpublished novel gathering dust under your bed? Well, it’s time to unearth those words, because today Amazon launched its annual Breakthrough Novel contest.

Today Amazon launched its annual Breakthrough Novel Award contest.

Authors are welcome to enter in one of five categories: general fiction, mystery/thriller, romance, sci-fi/fantasy/horror and young adult fiction. One winner in each category will receive a contract with Amazon Publishing. Four finalists will get a $15,000 advance, while one grand prize winner will receive a $50,000 advance.

Head to CreateSpace to enter and read all the rules. Note the first round just requires a 300-word pitch. Those who advance to the next round will need to submit more of their work.

To read previous Breakthrough Novel award winners, head to amazon.Com/abna. You may want to start with 2012’s East of Denver, which was actually penned by Pop Candy reader Gregory Hill.

The entry period ends Jan. 27, so get cracking! The grand prize winner will be voted on by Amazon.Com users and announced in June.
