#MarSocial's Author of the Year Competition!
As my readers probably already know, I am now a finalist in the MarSocial's Author of the Year Competition. I wanted to take a moment and explain what the competition is about.
If you are following my feeds on Twitter, you have probably seen me tweet about other authors. Some of you have even retweeted my posts, and thanks so much for that. This is truly an altruistic competition, and the first of its kind. Here is a description:

According to founder of the competition, Joseph Ephraim or “Cap’n Joe” as he is known to us online, “Our aim is to give all our Marzian authors who enter this competition as much maximum exposure via the large social media networking sites as we possibly can.”
