The MS isn't even completed yet! The Debut Dagger is a comparatively new category for unpublished novels by unpublished novelists. You submit the first 3000 words and a 500 word synopsis. There's no guarantee that winning the award will get you published.

However, every single winner HAS been subsequently published and so have most of those who've made the shortlist, so just getting nominated increases the odds in my favor tremendously.

Our own Al Guthrie's first book, TWO-WAY SPLIT, was a Debut Dagger nominee, and, as he put it, getting that nomination "opened a lot of doors."

Thanks for your good wishes.
