ABNA Quarterfinals

Well, my first YA novel, THE JERICHO EFFECT, made it into the Quarterfinals of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award! To read my first couple chapters, click on the title of the book above to download them from Amazon. You may have to download Kindle software to read the excerpt because of some changes made for this year's contest. You can go to the contest website for more information. My goal for this contest was to make it at least as far as the Quarterfinals where I can now get some reader feedback. Also my entire manuscript will be reviewed by Publisher's Weekly! It's all very exciting.
