PEORIA, Ariz. - Sept. 13, 2020 - PRLog -- "The Awakening," written by Peoria, Arizona resident, Anne Williams, was nominated for a 2020 Author Elite Award, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry, and is now a top 10 finalist.

Anne Williams's book is up for an award in the Best Young Adult Book category, which tells the story of twelve-year-old Emily who is learning what it means to have an old soul and the ability to manipulate elements.

"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 Elite 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.
