A Different Kind of Competition

Where have I been? Ha! Over at Marsocial’s Author of the Year Competition where I am honored as a runner up with my book excerpt from The Genealogist’s Guests! It was a one of a kind competition where authors promoted their competitors while aiming for the win. The twenty nine runner ups and winner Karynne Summars for her book excerpt Desperate Pursuit in Venice spent weeks promoting each other through social media. We posted to FB, Tweeted like crazy, and sent out press releases. We followed each other on Twitter, Facebook, and on blogs and websites. The goal was to gain as much exposure possible for each participant and we were very much successful. The winner, Karynne, may have her book made into a film by KeeranVaani Creations International Film Producers: http://marsocial.com/2013/11/disturbed-feature-film/
