A few weeks ago I announced that I was entering a contest held by Amazon. The winner gets $15K and a book deal with Penguin Press. I wanted to enter both the youth and general audience categories but unfortunately there was only one entry allowed per person. Instead I entered A Seal Upon My Heart to just the GA category.
Yay! I made it to the second round. Keep your fingers crossed that I make the quarter finals! For making it to the second round I will receive an Amazon review of my excerpt (and that will be most awesome when I publish the story). I'll keep you posted.
