It's a first step and I'll take it!
My novel "Drop Dead Cadillac" is one of a 1000 general fiction novels in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest to move into the second round of editorial reviews.
Since the total number of entries for the contest is 10,000, I'm happy about this.
If you are interested in reading an excerpt, it should be available on the amazon.com website under ABNA contest.
If not there, I have the first two chapters on Scribd.com (http://www.scribd.com/doc/20069062/Drop-Dead-Cadillac-Chapters-1-2).
"Drop Dead Cadillac" is a Marlowe Black Mystery set in NYC 1951.
