From November 2007 through January 2008, Amazon Top Reviewers and editors generated over 10,000 unique ratings and reviews to determine the 836 semi-finalists. ‘Publishers Weekly’ then provided a full manuscript review of all semi-final submissions. Using reviews and ratings from ‘Publishers Weekly’ and Amazon Top Reviewers, as well as input from Amazon customers, Penguin editors now will begin the process of choosing the top 10 finalists, to be announced on March 3, 2008. Amazon customers will then vote on the 10 finalists to select the winner of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, to be announced April 7, 2008.”
