“Forsworn” a Quarter-Finalist in the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest!

Crazy great news! My post-apocalyptic novel, Forsworn, made it into the quarter-finals of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest, which is wildly competitive and one of the most high profile fiction contests out there. It is now in the top 500 of 10,000 amazing new stories, and if I can make it to the top 5, I win a publishing contract!

Even better news…You can read it! The general public is allowed to review the excerpts of each contest entry and your reviews count toward my final score. So go enjoy the first chapter, and leave a review to let me know how you liked the start, and to help bump me just a little closer to the top for the next elimination round!

Forsworn is set in a post-apocalyptic version of the American west, with a badass female assassin as the main character, with an honorable but too-idealistic prince as her ally, and a smart-ass sword fighter who might be a friend, or might be a foe, just to add a little spice to the mix. Plus, the first chapter features a crazy naked fight scene. Knives are involved, and horses, so it’s a lot of fun.

To vote, go to www.amazon.com and search “Michelle Hazen Forsworn”

Then download the sample and leave a review, and it will help me move forward in the contest! Cross your fingers for me!

      Hi there! You are so wonderful. I love your comments! Forsworn is currently a drawer book- it did quite well in that Amazon contest, but dystopian is a bit of a hard sell and at the moment, I don’t want to pursue the trilogy involved. As for the rocker books you read about in my “in progress” blog, my agent currently has those out for reads to publishers! Feel free to follow my blog, and/or come find me on twitter at @michellehazen, and I’ll get you a signed copy as soon as one of these comes out!
