The fictional story's setting is in the Universe during the beginning of time for Earth and traveling well into the fictional future. Starting at the literal beginning, this tale takes the reader to far off planets and back in time providing a fictional glimpse unique to the story we are all familiar with. The writer broaches well-known stories from fresh perspective bringing them to the reader in a relaxed, summarized form.
The message is clear, and it's question plain and simple. "Is the end of Humanity it's beginning?" The book is not the Bible, nor is it intended to be, but rather a frank discussion of what could be when the reader surmises their perspective from the tale. http://bookstore.bookcountry.com/Products/SKU-000596828/The-End-of-Humanity.aspx

MARSocial in conjunction with Keeran Vaanie Creations International Film Producers have developed an Author of the Year competition that is run by authors for the benefit of all the authors who enter. Excerpts of the participants' books are tweeted and re-tweeted throughout the competition.

Along with being announced Author of the Year, the winner also stands the chance of having his or her book adapted into a film by Keeran Vaani Creations. Joseph Ephraim or "Cap'n Joe" as he is known is the founder of the competition and is quoted as saying, "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."
The contest, "MARSocial"s Author of the Year Contest", didn't start out to be the altruistic International event it's sponsors intended it to be, but soon the authors got together and decided not to go it alone.
They started tweeting and sharing others excerpts out to social media in hopes that at least one of them would be seen, read and then all of the excerpts would get out there. There are so many genre's and attached to each book is an author with a story of their own. http://marsocial.com/groups/marsocials-author-of-the-year-competition/
