SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - July 26, 2018 - PRLog -- "You Can't Try a Dead Man – The Untold Story of Injustice," written by Judee Howard, Sioux Falls' resident, has been nominated for a 2018 Author Academy Award, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry.

Howard's book is up for an award in the Memoir category, which tells the story of a wrongfully convicted man who has spent 37 years in the South Dakota prison system. The story of Jeff Howard is a story of freedom, redemption, forgiveness, and love.

"Hundreds of books from authors throughout the world are up for an Author Academy Award," said Kary Oberbrunner, founder of Author Academy Elite and the Author Academy Awards. "Our goal is to help further connect this global community of authors, maintain excellence and integrity of the book publishing industry, and raise awareness that the stories being told and the authors who write them are worth our attention."

Authors of all kinds—indie (self-published), traditional, or collaborative published—are being considered for the award in one of sixteen categories. Entries are being reviewed and evaluated on popular vote, social contribution, and overall presentation (cover, content, flow, and originality) by the Academy's voting membership comprised of best-selling authors, literary agents, and industry leaders.

If interested in supporting Howard and participating in the popular vote portion of the award evaluation, go to and scroll to the "Ready to Vote?" section. Once there, click through to the Memoir category, then find and click on "You Can't Try a Dead Man."

The top ten finalists in each category will be invited to present their book synopsis at an Author Academy Awards Red Carpet Session on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio. Winners will be announced later that evening at the Author Academy Awards Ceremony where they will be invited to give an acceptance speech.  Winners will also receive the opportunity to present their book synopsis at the Igniting Souls Conference main stage on the days immediately following Author Academy Awards in front of a global audience.
