Last week, I received some exciting news…
It was 2am and I couldn’t sleep…
I decided to get up and edit a couple of short stories I’d been working on.
- One about a boy who can control people with his mind.
- Another about a virus that wipes out 99 percent of the residents on a secluded island.
You know, the usual stuff.
Anyway, I opened up my emails to find some very exciting news involving aliens and actors.
On behalf of The Roswell Award organizers, I’m excited to congratulate you on being chosen as a Roswell Award finalist for your story, “The King Experience.”
I thought I wouldn’t be hearing about this award for another month so I was super surprised and excited.
But you know what’s even cooler?
The finalists’ stories will be read on stage by celebrity guests at LitFest Pasadena on Saturday, May 19 at 5:30pm. After the readings, the first, second, and third place Roswell Award winners will be announced.
Okay, I thought. Who are these celebrity guests who read out the stories. Are they really celebrities or ‘celebrities.’ (To be honest, either is pretty exciting – my story is going to be read aloud dramatically to an audience!)
They haven’t released the list of narrators for this year, but I looked up last year’s event and was pleasantly surprised.
Now I don’t watch a lot of TV, but even I have heard of Arrow and Star Trek Voyager…
Obviously, I can’t make it to LA but I have my fingers crossed that the event organisers will record it or livestream it so I can share with you all.
Will keep you posted.
