First Roadblock

I wish I could tell you that I was advancing to the Seminfinals and happily on my way to winning the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, but I am not. Disappointed? To say the least. Worst of all, I let you, my readers, down. You who took the time and trouble to read my pages and especially you who wrote such kind praise for my reviews.
Ultimately, I would like to think that I did not advance because of incompatibility between what I wrote and what the the contest was looking for. However, I must assume full responsibility and go back to my writing, and continue to work endlessly and tirelessly until my writing is such that it cannot be denied.
While I am grateful that my novel was a Quarterfinalist its first time out, my aim is true and simple: to write and publish the best first novel that I can. I owe it to myself, and I owe it to you.

Thank you for your overwhelming support. That is reward and motivation enough as I go forward in search of an agent to get the novel published.
