Quarter Finalist!

Good news, everyone! My novel just made it past the “Quarter Finalist” round for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award! If you haven’t heard of the ABNA, it’s a contest sponsored by Amazon and Createspace. The grand prize is a $50,000 publishing contract with Amazon, and there are five smaller prizes of $15,000 each.


Find out more about how it works here:

Now that I’ve made it past this crucial round, editors from Publisher’s Weekly will be personally reviewing my manuscript and rating it on the following judging criteria: originality of idea, plot, prose/writing style, character development, and overall strength of submission.

In addition, Amazon customers can download, rate, and review the excerpts on Amazon.com, providing feedback to Amazon Publishing Editors about submissions.

Thank you guys for all your support! Together, we’re one step closer to seeing Seraphim published!

The Semi-Finalists (top 25) will be announced on June 13th, 2014, and I’ll keep everyone updated on Seraphim’s progress. Until then: fingers crossed!
