FROM WVWRITERS MEMBER CHRIS KUELL:
Last November, I entered my novel, Disconnected, into the amazon.com Breakthrough Novel Award contest. On January 15, the top 20% (as judged by Publishers Weekly reviewers) moved on to the semi-finals, and Disconnected was among them.
From here, the public is invited to visit amazon at the link below, download for free the first 5,000 words, and review what you've read. In March, the books with the most positive reviews will move on in the competition, with first place being $25,000 and a contract for publication with Penguin Books. The top 10 places will also be considered for Penguin contracts.
So, I invite you to take a look at the beginning of my book, and if you feel inclined, please write a review.
