I'm a quarterfinalist for the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 





First of all, yay! I was thrilled to learn today that my young adult novel, THE CHARGE, was selected as a quarterfinalist for the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. So now it's up on Amazon for public rating and review. Yikes! I thought only published writers had to deal with that, and they get the self-esteem boost of being published. :)

So, I would be very happy if you would read my excerpt here and submit a rating and review. Bonus friendship points if you also post the link on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter account.

Special thanks to my beta readers and critique partners for The Charge (aka Stormland)!

  4. BTW - If you've looked at it, you've noticed the formatting is messed up. This is the case for EVERY entry. They're supposed to fix it soon, so you might hold off on downloading it to your Kindle until then so it's not all wonky.

  10. Sharon, dang it! I posted the wrong title name - for some reason I kept wanting to call it The Challenge! Sorry about that - some help I am - anyway, it's corrected now:)
