Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Update

Last month I submitted my historical novel, Keowee, to the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. Here's an update:

  • Keowee made it past the Pitch round to the second round, and is now a Quarter-Finalist.

  • Excerpts are up from all the Quarterfinalists, and are available to read at To read an excerpt of my novel, go to the left side of page, see "Quarter-Finalists by Category," click on "Historical Fiction," and look for Keowee by K.S. Crawford. If you have a Kindle, you can download the excerpt for free; if you have a PC or Mac, you can download "Kindle for PC or Mac" for free and read it that way.

  • If you're interested, you can also review the excerpt and give it a rating (between 1 and 5 stars). Please be kind (she asks humbly).

This is pretty exciting stuff, and I'm grateful and of course a wee bit proud. The going gets hairy from here: judges narrow the 250 Quarter-Finalists (in Fiction) down to 50 Semi-Finalists; those results will be posted on or around April 26, 2011.
