Contest for 2014. This is one of the few free and 100% real and respected
writing contexts available for writers to join in hopes of getting recognition
and possibly a publishing contract. The judges for this contest are real
editors and publishers, and it also happens to be the only way to put in a
blind submission to Amazon Publishing.
So all around, it’s a win / win situation.
Rules and entry information is located here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000633821You still have until Midnight on March 2nd 2014 or until Amazon receives 10,000 entries.
If you’re a writer and want to be recognized and possibly find a publisher, I recommend taking part in this contest.
If you’re a reader and enjoy good books, then I suggest keeping an eye on this contest, because you will have the ability to vote for different aspects of the contest and the writers.
Around April 14, 2014 Amazon customers will be able to vote on which “Hooks” of the various stories that they like or don’t like. July 8th to 18th 2014 will be the time that Amazon customers can vote for which book they like the best that have made it to the final entry round.
So like I said, there are a lot of interesting opportunities for both writers and readers.
