    A Different Kind of Competition

     
    MARSocial Author-of-the-Year Competition

    In November 2013 MARSocial launched an Author-of- the-Year competition, which is extremely altruistic. All genres were invited to participate. The authors involved in the competition are promoting each other by tweeting and re-tweeting their own as well as the other author’s excerpts to bring awareness to both the social medial site and their books. Over 100,000 individual tweets promoting the international authors have been going out so far. The competition is presently in its boot camp stage. The winner and the 20 runner-ups will be announced on February 1, 2014.

    At last a competition that is run by authors for the benefit of all authors who enter. To enter this competition authors simply had to post the most exciting excerpt from their book, (between 500 & 1,000 words and then tweet and re-tweet the excerpts via the Twitter button appearing at the end of each excerpt. MARSocial in conjunction with KeeranVaani Creations International Film Producers: http://marsocial.com/2013/11/disturbed-feature-film/ will present the M.A.R.S. Author of the Year Award.
