Not Suprised, but,,, February 13, 2013

Posted by Tom Wells in Introductions.

I’m not surprised to find out today that my Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest entry didn’t make it past the first round, but that doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed.  It was a weird experience this morning though.  When the results first went up, I clicked on the Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror link to see the results of my entry category.  My name wasn’t on the list and my heart sank.  Then I noticed that the names of books were odd. Then I noticed I was looking at the Mystery/Thriller list.  I went back to the links and clicked on the Sci Fi link again and the Mystery list came up.  So the Amazon link was off and my hopes went back up. But the initial sting was still there, so when the link was fixed, and my name was still not listed, the initial crush of disappointment had subsided by then.

So the downside is that my pitch didn’t win, but I now have a book ready for publishing.  I’m going to put some artwork together and format the book and make it available on Amazon and Smashwords. For those of you visiting my blog after reading the free Kindle version of Mother, you may be happy to learn that this book will be the expanded version of my original story, there is a lot more Seeker One in this story.  I hope to have it up  before the end of March.
