I made it the cut.
I mentioned a while back that I was entering this year's Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest and in the wee hours of this morn, I got word that out of somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 entries I made the top 500. That means I am a quarterfinalist and that a portion of Plundered booty is now available for you to read for free on Amazon.com.
Here is the direct link -- Plundered Booty. Once you land on the correct page their is a link in the upper right hand corner that reads Download for free. Please check it out of you have time. Customers reviews are figured in to the overall judging somehow so please leave one of you have time.
Of course I am stoked as, I know there were lots of talented writers who didn't make the cut. My prize for making it this far is to get a complete book review from the team at Publishers Weekly. that is both exciting and a tad scary, but I have faith in both the story and my ability to write so I believe it will be mostly good.
In not so good news I am scheduled for a root canal at 1 PM today. And of course the new house prep works continues on. Thanks in advance for checking out my booty.
