America's Next Author 2013

DECEMBER 3rd 2012 | We'll be back next year for another round of ANA!

After the huge success of #ANA2012, we've decided that we'll be back next year for America's Next Author 2013! (As long as the world doesn't end on December 21st!) We've listened to your feedback and we'll start the contest in the first half of the year so that it doesn't conflict with NaNoWriMo. We'd also like to thank you for all of the other feedback you've given us and we will be using it to make #ANA2013 even better. We'll announce more details after this year's contest has wrapped up!
