Sunday writing: Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

It's that time of year again.  Last year Jill Baguchinsky won with her novel Spookygirl so who knows? It could be you this year.

The Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award brings together talented writers, reviewers, and publishing experts to find and develop new voices in fiction. The 2012 international contest will award two grand prizes: one for General Fiction and one for Young Adult Fiction. Each winner will receive a publishing contract with Penguin, which includes a $15,000 advance.  Open submissions for manuscripts will begin on January 23, 2012 and run through February 5, 2012.

Here's the web page for more details which will link to contest rules, how to enter and helpful communities.

Next week I'll get round to reviewing.  I thought I might alternate between talking about writing and reviewing each week because weekends are the best time for me to blog.  When I get in from work I just want to relax and not move at all.
