Tired of Online Writing Contests Yet?

I guess this is the publishing world’s version of reality TV shows (“Amazon Launches Debut Novel Contest,” Publishers Weekly):
Amazon is getting into the author-writing contest arena, launching the first Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award today in cooperation with Penguin and Hewlett-Packard. Amazon will accept submissions through November 5 and the winner will have his or her novel published by Penguin, which is also offering a $25,000 advance. PW will serve as preliminary judges of the material as well.
