I have some exciting news! Remember when I submitted The Prophecy Box to a contest called the Amazon Breakthrough Novelist Award. The winner gets a $15,000 advance and a publishing contract with Penguin.
Well, I've made it through the first and second rounds and am now a Quarterfinalist!!! There are 250 quarterfinalist entries in the Young Adult division. Here is where I need your help:
1. I need you to go to the website: http://www.amazon.com/Prophecy-Box-Excerpt-Breakthrough-ebook/dp/B003CV7UQQ/ref=sr_1_167?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1270092488&sr=1-167
2. Download my 3,000-word excerpt and write a review of my excerpt. (Some guidelines for reviews are located here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/guidelines/review-guidelines.html)
The more reviews I have, the better chance I have at progressing to the Semifinals. I would really appreciate it, if you could take some time out of your day. :) Thank you!
Review deadline date: April 27, 2010.
