Last night, I found out something really, really cool about one of Feathermoon’s own.

One of our favorite Boomsticks, Homrend, is not only the guild leader of an awesome group of RPers, he’s also a FINALIST in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel contest.

Should he win, he gets a $25,000 advance and a publishing contract from Penguin USA.

What can you do?  Why, I’m glad you asked!  The voting is open until May 21st.  The excerpt from his book, Stuff of Legends, is here.  You need an Amazon account and can only vote once.  Hie thee on over to the site and cast your vote for Ian Gibson.

(I know, I know.  I’m usually railing against Amazon here.  But something to understand — this is about an author’s big break, not about Amazon vs. the Indies.  While they are related topics, I will always root for an author’s success.  That’s part of what being a bookseller is — discovering new books to love and championing those authors so they can write more for us to devour.)
