I’m an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Quarterfinalist!

Yes, I remember entering this contest…vaguely. Very vaguely. Oh well.

Received notification this morning that I am one of 500 quarterfinalists (out of a maximum 10,000 entries, that’s not bad).

You can see my novel excerpt at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001UG3B4U. Please download it, review it, pass it on to your friends. (If you’re not in the US, you can view the excerpt on my site here.)

It’s a pretty big deal contest: Grand Prize is a publishing contract with Penguin and a $25k royalty advance.

If I make it to the final round, I’ll be stumping for votes. I hate that system, because it means the best campaigner wins, not necessarily the best novel, but you have to work with what you’ve got, I suppose.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed, shall we?
