Name of the Competition: Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA) Genre Specific? I don't think so. Length of Submission Required: I believe between 50k - 150k Deadline: Submissions start the 25th of January and end February 7th, or once they have ten thousand entries. Website Hosting the Competition (link, please): www.amazon.com/Breakthrough-Novel-Award-Books/b?ie=UTF8&node=332264011 ^^^ You can find more information on the left side of the screen, near-ish to the top, under the FAQs and Rules.

Thanks Pam! I can see it now, but there may have been a brief outage last night, and again today during the day. There's been some bumpy days in the service while they're upgrading something or other...

Can I post my literary magazine with submission deadlines? We publish literary + magical realism short stories and poetry. I don't want to overstep any boundaries, so I wanted to confirm with an admin that this is appropriate.
