    Default Holy Cow! I'm In Total Disbelief!!! (and can use your help!)

    HI all…

    So, exciting news around my house…A few months ago, I submitted my novel to the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest. They originally took 5,000 entries, and in the second round, narrowed it to 1,000. I was thrilled to have made that cut. As of yesterday, they have narrowed the field again, to the 250 quarterfinalists. I’m in!

    In this next round, our excerpts have been posted on Amazon.com and are awaiting customer reviews. So, if you are so inclined, I would love if you could help me out!

    If you go to Amazon.com, in the Search All Departments box, type in “Amy Bozza.” (Tee-hee…I’m on Amazon!) You will get a list and my excerpt will be first. There will be a tan box to the left that says “Thriller and Suspense” and then to the right of that is my name and the title, which is “The Follow Through.” If you click on the title, it will take you to the page for my excerpt. Here’s the direct link to my page: [ame=http://www.amazon.com/The-Follow-Through-ebook/dp/B003CV7SA4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=digital-text&qid=1269442094&sr=8-1]Amazon.com: The Follow Through eBook: Amy Bozza: Kindle Store[/ame]

    You have to download the excerpt, but there is a catch. They only allow downloads to Kindle’s or to Kindle for PC. Imagine my dismay, as I don’t own a Kindle, however, I was able to quickly and freely download Kindle for PC. Again, it’s FREE. Took about two minutes. Once you download the program, you can go back and download the excerpt. If you have a Kindle, you can download directly to your Kindle.

    This is the important part: After you have read the excerpt, please go back to Amazon and leave a customer review. I’m happy to take high-fives at the village, but please keep the reviews “business-like.”

    I warn you ahead of time…you may be surprised that it came from me, as the story can be a little violent at times, but, it’s fiction, folks. Pretend it isn’t me who wrote it, if you need to.

    Thank you for your support!

    Amy
