Alas, my new novel failed to advance to the quarter-final round of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. I can only assume that the judges lost my entry. How else could you explain the lack of inclusion?
Actually, I'm certain that the remaining novels are mind-numbing miracles of literature and worthy of advancement. In the meantime I take heart in history. Einstein's theories were originally mocked, President Truman failed at business, and Edison made one thousand failed light bulb designs before inventing one that worked. And Jennifer Hudson did not win American Idol, for crying out loud. You go, girl!
Back to the old pen and inkwell!
