About three years ago I met Elmore Hammes at a local NaNoWriMo kickoff party. He’s impressed me with the number of novels he can churn out each year and with the quality of his writing. Elmore’s been published in The First Line and submitted one of his novels for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. I received an email from Elmore today to find out that from 5,000 entries, Elmore is a one of the 800 semi-finalists. An excerpt of Elmore’s novel can be found on Amazon here.
Amazon customers can read excerpts of the semi-finalists and provide customer reviews until March 2nd. Finalists will be announced on March 3rd. If you review the excerpts you’re in the running for a prize package of goodies. It looks like the catch is that you have to provide at least 25 reviews. Think of it this way… if you do one review a day you’ll be in the running for the prize package before you know it!
