When does the entry period for the 2015 ABNA begin?

I want to make sure that I don't miss it.  I would also like to know if there are changes in the official rules from year to year or if they stay the same. How long is the entry period? TIA

Re: When does the entry period for the 2015 ABNA begin?

We're usually informed by email when details are released but it's best to keep checking back here from time to time. Last year the contest was quite a few weeks later than in previous years.

Now I'm hoping you, or someone reading this, can help me. I've got a discussion up on my iPad called 'The Pitch Thread - 2015, Lord of the Pitch' I want to post my pitch for review but can I find this discussion on my main pc - no I can't. My eyes are all googled out and stare crazy - no amount of key word searching has helped

Indeed when? It used to be in January. I thought February might be "it" but still no announcement. Does anybody know anything??

They've discontinued ABNA. Kindle Scout is taking its place: https://kindlescout.amazon.com/.

Oh no

I've been working full out to get a novel finished ready for ABNA 2015 - just about finished it today. I saw someone mention Kindle Scout last year but I thought the submission period for that had already ended

This seems very unfair - I've just checked Kindle Scout and, while it sounds great, it's restricted to authors who have a valid US bank account!!!! GREAT!!! So the rest of the world is barred!!!

What is Kindle Scout? Is it an all year thing?

Hey, iamtrent. The Kindle Scout contest is an ongoing forum where folks enter and drop out all the time, and is open year-round. The link is posted above in Seisa’s response.

 

I’ve entered twice, unfortunately, without much luck. To be honest with you, I think it is more of a popularity contest with nominations being garnered by someone’s popularity on Facebook, Twitter, and other social sites rather than by the content of a story. Of course that might be a bit of sour grapes, but it was fun anyway.

 

If you have something laying around that hasn’t been published, give it a shot.
