So I get a link to the Amazon "breakout novel contest". Great. Good opportunity to take a shot at getting a good push for the book. So I go the rules and find out that, "Any Manuscript submitted as an Entry written by two or more authors will not be eligible."
What the...? Why? Is our novel somehow not good enough because we collaborated? Did we really only write half a novel? Can two people not breakout as well as one?
Well F.U. Amazon.

Hi! Eric,

I wonder why two authors, of a book would deem you ineligible to enter a contest?...Hmmm

But,on the other hand, if I may be so bold and make a about googling
the words...Writers Contest 2010 and see what turns up just for the "fun" of it!

Take care!
DeeDee ;-D

If you do decide to take my advice and seek out contest for writers...please be sure to google...
...mystery writer contest for published writers.
The only thing I don't like about these contest(s) is the fact, an entry fee is sometimes required.

Sounds a frustrating rule. Just as real a book. And only one entry so no problem for them. THat's life I guess.
