Annie advances to the Semifinals of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award
On Tuesday, Amazon announced the 50 semifinalists in the General Fiction category of the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and Annie Begins is on the list! (There is a second Young Adult category with another 50 semifinalists.) There were 5,000 entrants in my category to start with, so I'm proud to have made it this far. The next round will narrow to three finalists, in late May, chosen by Penguin editors.
