Contest Alert!!!!

Amazon.com and Penguin Group Announce Third Annual Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Competition
I just found out about this contest yesterday.  (I wish I would have know sooner.  My own novel probably won't be done by then.)  They will be accepting full manuscripts from un-published authors for a chance to win a publishing deal.  There will be one regular fiction winner and one young adult winner.  Each winner will receive a publishing contract with Penguin, which includes a $15,000 advance.  Manuscripts can be submitted Jan. 25 - Feb. 7.  This is a chance for you to submit your own novel!  Check out these two sites from more details (createspace.com and amazon.com)
