MT. VERNON, Iowa - Aug. 20, 2018 - PRLog -- Author, Dianne Osmun's recently released book, Finding Mom in the Midst of Alzheimer's: A Daughter's Journey to Healing, Reconciliation, and Acceptance has been nominated in the memoir category for the prestigious 2018 Author Academy Awards. The Author Academy Awards is an international award bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry. Osmun is competing with hundreds of authors worldwide for the honor of being awarded the "Academy Boon of Merit."

Finding Mom is Osmun's own story of learning to let go of the childhood traumas inflicted on her by the mother, who now suffers from Alzheimer's Disease. Through her transparent and raw account, Osmun shares how through the day to day care of her mother, she is confronted with not only her own abuse, but her mother's as well. Finding Mom is more than just a memoir. It is a look at the generational effects of abuse and the power of understanding and forgiveness in overcoming the effects of life-long emotional and verbal abuse. Osmun's open and honest account of the struggle to balance the care of a loved one suffering from dementia, while reconciling the past brings hope to others experiencing a similar situation.

"Hundreds of books from authors throughout the world are up for an Author Academy Award." Said Kary Oberbrunner, founder of Author Academy Elite and 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 are being considered for the award in one of sixteen categories. Entries are being 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.

The top ten finalists in each category will be invited to present their book synopsis at an Author Academy Awards Red Carpet Session in October, in Columbus, Ohio.

Finding Mom in the Midst of Alzheimer's is available on Amazon worldwide and can be ordered from Barnes and Noble. Visit http://www.dianneosmun.com for details or contact Dianne at dianne@dianneosmun.com.
