Democratization of the Novel

John Keehler

Amazon and the Penguin Group have teamed up to launch the “Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.” Aspiring authors can submit an unpublished novel for consideration. According to the site, “top Amazon customer reviewers” will be involved in the judging of what books make it to the semi-final round, and Penguin will select novels for final judging based on customer comments and Publisher’s Weekly reviews.

But you don’t have to win the contest to get published. All entrants will be able to self-publish and sell their entries on Amazon through CreateSpace, a personal publishing service, at no charge. Original link via Fimoculous.
