Pyro made the quarterfinals in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest. I’m cautiously excited. I’ll get a Publisher’s Weekly review, which, hopefully, might help me sell it. Last year Snake Talker got a great review from PW, and that got me to the semifinals. Maybe this year I can make it to the finals. You never know. It’s all subjective. It’s like a painting. Some people will like it, some won’t. It doesn’t mean it’s a bad painting. And it doesn’t mean it’s a good painting. You just have to hope that the people who like it are the ones in power.
