GAINESVILLE, Ga. - Jan. 10, 2014 - PRLog -- Lilian Roberts of Gainesville became a finalist in the MARSocial Author of the Year Competition, arguably the largest competition of its kind in the world.

Roberts submitted an excerpt of her debut novel, ARIELLE IMMORTAL AWAKENING. She was named a finalist on Jan. 8, 2014. The winner and 20 runners-up are to be announced on Feb. 1.

The competition is being run by MARSocial and KeeranVaani Creations International Film Producers. The producers will choose the winning book and might adapt it into a movie.

People worldwide are competing and spreading the word about the competition. There have been more than 100,000 tweets about the competition. One book excerpt has been retweeted more than 11,000 times.

The organizers state on the MARSocial website that the competition's goal is to get the entrants as much exposure as possible using social media. The producers are hoping to raise money to finance their current project, the movie "Disturbed."
