"When you go up against 160 excerpts from amazingly talented indie authors who are submitting in every genre it's really an honor. I have met some of the nicest people from all over the world and we plan on keeping in touch through social networks."
"I am very happy that the excerpt from my debut erotic romance, Second Chance Sammy's story made it as far as it did. It lets me know I'm doing something right and that I'm on the right track. I never thought I would win, and figured I had a snowballs chance in Florida that my erotic romance would ever be picked for a feature film."
The authors started by tweeting their own excerpts out on Twitter and sharing on Facebook. Then they did something that is almost unheard of in a competition. They decided to not only tweet their own excerpts but to tweet all their fellow authors excerpts too. For three months every day the authors who took this competition seriously helped each other by getting the excerpts out to millions of people.
The winner Karynne Summars of NY who also entered with an erotic romance won the chance to have her book, Desperate Pursuit in Venice made into a feature film by Keeran Vaanie Creations. Ms. Summars is also an executive Producer at Keeran Vanni Creations with their movie Disturbed.
