A New Night Before Christmas

Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing allows anyone to self-publish eBooks, paperbacks and hardcover books for free. It makes it easy for amateur writers to get to market - all they need is a good story. We launched a contest to find them. A New Night Before Christmas challenged aspiring authors to submit an original story with the winning tale delivered for free to millions of Kindles, turning the book into an instant hit. The inaugural competition was won by Lucy Banks for her story about a slug named Sol and his Christmas Eve adventures. She has since become a full time children’s book writer.
