Readers' Favorite has earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Penguin and Harper Collins, and has received the Best Websites for Authors and Honoring Excellence awards from the Association of Independent Authors. They host a respected annual international award contest receiving thousands of entries from all over the world.
Study after study has shown the importance of having close confidants outside of the family - for our health and sanity. Linked Lives, available at Amazon.com in paperback or e-book and published by Wizard of Words, is a memoir encapsulating the vital importance of nurturing friendships and helping one another through many of life's challenges. This story takes readers on a forty-year journey with two women facing incredible adversity, poverty, family struggles, losses through illness and death as well as betrayals in love. Their linked lives create a rock-solid friendship. This story deeply touches anyone who has ever had a best friend.
"Competition was fierce. Often finalists were selected by extremely narrow margins and many great books could not be chosen," says Debra Gaynor, CEO of Readers Favorite. "It was an extremely competitive year and selections were hard earned."
Winners will be announced on September 1, 2014. For more information about the awards and for a list of finalists, please visit: https://readersfavorite.com/
