Our Volume 18 Grand Prize Winner in the Amazon.com Contest - Help Him Out. You could be in his shoes in the future!

Dear All,

I got the following message today and had to post it for you all:

Grand Prize winner from WOTF Vol. 18, Dylan Otto Krider, has had his novel TAKING OVER selected as a semi-finalist for the highly publicized Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Only the top five percent of the 5,000 entrants were selected to compete in the Mystery, Thriller & Suspense category. From here, the public gets to have a say in which manuscripts move on to the final round by reviewing a short 8 page novel excerpt ( you can download and comment on the excerpt here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00122GTOQ ). Based on those comments, the winner will receive a contract from Penguin books and be highly promoted by Amazon.

With the money backing this contest, having one of your WOTF authors move on to the next round would certainly raise the profile of Hubbard’s writing program even higher than it already is, so considering all the help you’ve done for my career in the past, I wanted to let you know about it. You can learn more at www.amazon.com/abna .

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU DYLAN!! (all of us at the contest)

Note from Joni - the first set of Honorable Mentions will appear tomorrow for sure. (I'm still getting feedback and would like to make the list complete in one shot, although if I haven't heard back from everyone by the end of tonight I'll publish 2 lists)

    Obviously not a grand prize winner (yet), but this two-time WotF semifinalist has got a dog in this hunt, too:
