    Hello from Kentuckiana, opinion needed on Amazon Breakthrough Novel contest

    Just wanted to introduce myself and ask a question. First my name is Atty, short for Atthalia. I write thriller and YA and MG. I'm finishing up final edits on my thriller My Beautiful Suicide. I'll be sending it out again this February/March but then I received this link.

    http://amzn.to/ABNA2013

    to the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards.

    Has anyone here entered this and what was your opinion/results?

    I just saw the link today as well. I'm going to enter if I get a rejection on the novel I sent to a publisher in November.
