America's Next Author is the first social writing contest. No entry fee. Grand Prize: $5000! This is not your average writing contest. It's built around a very unique concept: all contest entries will be visible to the public and the winner will be chosen by voters and our panel of judges.
Readers will be able to comment on stories, give feedback to authors, and vote for their favorites. This gives authors a great opportunity to get feedback on their work and build an online following.
The competition will have eight nomination rounds. Each week, the top-ranked author will be nominated for the finals. And even if a story isn't nominated, it will remain in the contest and have another chance to be nominated each week. During this process, authors can increase their chances of winning by getting everyone they know to vote for their story.
In addition to being read by the public, the contest entries will be judged by a panel of experienced professionals from the publishing industry. These judges will read entries and provide feedback to authors. They will also nominate four additional wildcard authors, adding them into the final rounds of competition.http://www.ebookmall.com/americasnextauthorhttp://www.ebookmall.com/americasnextauthor/rules
