In January I entered my novel, Screwing Up Time into the young adult category of Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award competition. Yesterday they posted the writers/books that made the first cut. So I looked for my name and didn’t find it. I consoled myself by saying I knew it was a long shot because the competition is stiff and the first round of the competition cuts the entrants by 80%.
But just before I closed the website, I remembered that I entered under CM Keller and not Connie Keller. So I checked for CM Keller. And it was there! I made it to round two!
The next cut will be a quarter finals cut and will be announced on March 20, so I’ll be hoping and praying. But once again, the cut is big. Of the remaining 20%, they’ll cut that by 75%.
