Amazon’s 2013 Breakthrough Novel Award is coming!

** Heads Up Indie Authors – It’s Awards Time! **

Amazon’s 2013 Breakthrough Novel Award is open to submissions on January 14th! 

From their page blurb:

“The sixth annual Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest was announced yesterday.

There are a few changes this year.

The judging categories have been expanded to include five popular genres: General Fiction, Romance, Mystery/Thriller, Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror and YA, Young Adult Fiction.

Entries will be accepted from more countries than ever before.

Amazon Publishing has replaced Penguin as the publishing sponsor.
The Amazon Breakthrough Award is one of the favourite prizes of the year for indie authors. That’s down to the value of the awards — the weight of Amazon Publishing behind your book with a $50,000 advance for the Grand Prize winner and four first prizes winning advances of $15,000 — but also because it is open to unpublished and self-published novels and because it remains free to enter — a particularly welcome feature when compared to some prizes for self-published books.

CreateSpace will again host the submission platform. For complete eligibility details, view the Official Contest Rules.

If you want to enter, you need to get cracking. Submission begins on January 14, 2013.”
