I have written my first proper novel this year and I find it amazing that Amazon gives new authors the opportunity to display their work and interact with people who share the same interests for the love of stories and books.

This year I entered the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest for the first time and made it through to the next level. However I didn't make it through to the quarter finals, but the experience has been amazing, and it has really added to my confidence of sharing my writing with others.

So if you would like to see my 2012 ABNA entry titled Samuel & I it is available for download for free this weekend.

Congratulations to those who have made it through and I wish you the very best of luck in the finals :-)

Congratulations Laura ! I started writing 'smallstories' a year ago today and it has been great fun all the way. The secret is to have no expectations and be happy with whatever happens, you can't fail if you approach it with a healthy attitude.
Good luck with 'Samuel & I'

'Twenty Tiny Tales' is free for Easter Weekend - it's not as nice as chocolate but is more fun...

Thank You Willie:-) It took me a long time to share my work with other people and now I am very happy that I have. I find myself writing a lot more since the release of Samuel & I and it is such a brilliant feeling to be confident doing so. Good Luck to you as well and I look forward to reading your short stories next:-)
