Revolution 19: Short-Story Contest

Revolution 19 coverHumans built robots to fight their wars. Until one day, when the robots stopped fighting each other, and turned their weapons on the humans. What happened next can only be described as a revolution.

Most of the human race was wiped out. Some managed to escaped and set up secret communities in the woods. Nick, Cass, and Kevin live with their parents in one of these villages. When the robots detect the village—and destroy it—the teens are the only survivors. They set out to find their parents with a plan to infiltrate the city of their enemies. They don’t just want to rescue their parents—but all of humanity.

  1. I know we are not allowed to change the story once it’s been posted, but are we allowed to fix grammar errors that we find?
