As the MARSocial Author of the year Contest nears the finals, my Children’s novel “The Realm of the Purple Dragon” is closing in on the Grand Prize.
I am so proud to announce that I am in the semi-finals of an International “Author of the Year Contest” sponsored by MARSocial Artist Network and KeeranVaani Creations International Film Producers . I have managed to survive the first two rounds in the contest besting many applicants and 160 contestants into the semi-final round.
The competition has been staged over the past three months having over 100,000 individual promotional tweets, with one single tweet being re-tweeted over 11,000+ times proving that the competition is going out to billions.
The contestants have been directed to contact the larger newspapers in the United States and the U.K. to spread the news. I have sent out press releases to my local newspaper and radio stations in Eastbourne, East Sussex and wait with anticipation how this will progress. I shall be brave and send out press releases to the Major News sources too – gulp!!!
Currently the field of 80 in the second stage are competing for the 40 finalist spots, the emotions and energy is growing daily, as more and more contestants use other publicity methods to garner support and exposure.
In 14 days the 40 spots will be filled and the finalist will compete for the final 20 positions whose books will be reviewed by KeeranVaani Creations International Film Producers to choose the most tantalizing story to produce into a feature film.
If this is a successful campaign, we can help raise £50,000.00 GBP. to fund KeeranVaani Creations film “Disturbed” and the winner may be in for a chance of having their book made into a film too.
