After a really long wait, Amazon has finally announced the ABNA for 2014. The prizes are here, and the rules here. I am also including the contract summary here, because anything that says you have to sign it “as is” just sets my teeth on edge. It looks pretty fair, I mean the advance is right there in the prizes section, and the royalties thereafter aren’t too bad either. There’s no non compete or exclusivity requirement that I can see, but I would be more interested in seeing the full contract.
With my paranoia put out for all to view, I am really excited. I wanted to participate in the ABNA last year but Sorcerer Rising wasn’t ready. Now it is. I don’t expect for it to get very high, but it’s fun none the less.
