Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest

Some exciting news today!

I just learned that my first novel, Running Secrets, has been selected as one of the 250 quarterfinalists in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest.  As a quarterfinalist, the full manuscript will be reviewed by Publishers Weekly.  The Top 100 Semifinalists, to be announced on April 27th, will be read by Penguin editors who select the 6 finalists.

Are any of you Kindle readers?  According to the contest guidelines:  “Amazon customers can download, rate, and review excerpts on, providing feedback to Penguin Editors about submissions.”

So if you go to books and type in Running Secrets - Kindle, this is what it looks like (or you can just click on the Running Secrets link below):

Running Secrets - Excerpt from 2010 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award entry by Arleen Williams (Kindle Edition - Mar. 23, 2010) - Kindle Book
Buy: $0.00

I’d really love to get some reviews… especially if they’re good!
