My entry is in! With a mad scramble over the last month to hone my story to a presentable version, my first novel has been entered into the 2012 ABNA. There was a lot of excitement on the message boards as we awaited the starting gun on 1/23/12 at 12:01am EST.
With only a small issue with my “captcha” not showing up, the process went pretty smoothly. By 12:30am, I received my confirmation email.
Thank you for participating in the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest!
We’ve received your entry, “Capritare: The Cycles Begin.”
Your unique ABNA ID is: XHF4QUTB
On February 24, Amazon will announce the round two entries at http://www.amazon.com/abna.
Good luck in the contest!
