Amazon Quarterfinals

Last week I mentioned my novels “The Pool” had made it to the quarterfinals in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Contest.

Now the excerpt I submitted is available for anybody to read and review, for free. If you are interested, I’d appreciate you taking a look at it.


The editors from Publishers Weekly make the decision of who advances and I do not think feedback on the excerpts, negative or positive, influence the decision at this stage. But I noticed that several of the other entries have started to receive customer reviews (on their excerpt) and figured I should at least mention this…

(p.s., A big thanks to the Amazon reviewers who passed my submission along and provided excellent feedback — both in the public comments available here as well as the more detailed review sent to me via the contest.)
