Amazon together with Createspace and Penguin have released their new info on their Breakthrough Novel Award. This year, they have said that even novels which have been previously self-published can be entered. They are accepting entries from the 25th January to 7 February. You need your full manuscript, the first 3000-5000 words of your novel, a pitch, entry form and a photo. But, you must have your name appearing anywhere on your manuscript or pitch. First prize is $15 000. So all you would be novelists who have completed something in NaNoWriMo or before, get your entry together. Maybe, if anybody's interested, we can start a pitch thread to help each other to get the perfect pitch!
