Author Carma Spence up against hundreds of authors worldwide for prestigious 2018 Author Academy Award
LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA (AUGUST 1, 2018)—Public Speaking Super Powers, written by Carma Spence, has been nominated for a 2018 Author Academy Award, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry.
Spence’s book, which is up for an award in the Self Development category, uses the metaphor of superheroes and their superpowers to talk about public speaking skills, techniques, and tools.
“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, which includes best-selling authors, literary agents, and industry leaders.
If interested in supporting Spence and participating in the popular vote portion of the award evaluation, go to https://authoracademyawards.com/ and scroll to the “Ready to Vote?” section. Once there, click through to the Self Development category, then find and click on Public Speaking Super Powers.
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 Academy Boon of Merit Award.
- Press release and media story presented to their hometown press by a professional PR firm.
- Their name and book highlighted on the Read to Lead Podcast (over 2 million downloads).
- A Private Group Coaching Session for all First Prize Winners with a YouTube Consultant on how to leverage your book with video.
- Traditional Media and Social Media press including features on select podcasts, shows, vlogs, blogs, and articles.
- Lifetime access to 30 Days to a Bigger Stage Experience, an online program helping authors get publicity for their book.
