If you have a fiction manuscript, unpublished or self-published, ready to go… Then check out ABNA 2012.
No fee to enter, you’ll be forced to clean up your act about 300-word pitches and descriptions, you might get a professional review from Publisher’s Weekly, you might get a listing on Amazon… and you might even get published by Penguin.
Of course ‘The Gospel According to the Romans’ is in already. There are only 5,000 General Fiction slots (and another 5,000 Young Adult).
So hurry, hurry, hurry!
And if there is a better competition out there, please let the rest of us know!
