Dianne Osmun's Finding Mom in the Midst of Alzheimer's, Nominated for Global Award
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)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
