    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!

    I used to love writing fiction, I wrote two romance novels and lots of short stories and poetry but only got paid for one poem.  So sticking to writing articles now .  At least we get paid for them.  And still dream about other novels writing.

    Oh I did print and sell many small booklets on ebay and sold allthose.
