Amazon.com is sponsoring a Breakthrough Novel Award thing in which they gather a bunch of unpublished novels through some kind of submission process and sift through them to see who should be given a publishing contract. Samples of the works are up for public comment. I've read some.
This is bad.
This is very bad.
This is wretched beyond belief.
If you enjoy pain you might want to wander over there and peruse your favorite genre. I guarantee you wont be better off because of it. It's writing like this that forces me to take a serious look at my own stuff. I don't think I'm bad. They don't think they're bad.
Someone is obviously wrong and I hope it's not me.
