I’ve found a common thread amongst those who’ve commented on Ruth’s Post entitled “Key Beliefs.” Nearly everyone has said that teachers of writing must be writers themselves. If that’s the case, then it’s time to submit that manuscript you’ve been keeping locked away for fear of it getting rejected. (BTW: I’ve had a children’s book I wrote rejected about 10 – 15 times now.)
Anyway, The Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest is open to folks who’ve written (unpublished) manuscripts of novel. (ONLY THE FIRST 5,000 WILL BE ACCEPTED.) But if you have, then check out their guidelines and get your submission sent by early November or sooner. GOOD LUCK!
