Author’s Memoir Finalist in International Book Award Contest

(Austin, TX – July 16, 2014) – Readers Favorite announced the finalists in its international book award contest. Linked Lives by Bonny Brookes is a finalist in two categories: Memoirs and Relationships.

Study after study has shown the importance of having close confidants outside of the family – for our health and sanity. Linked Lives, published by Wizard of Words, is a memoir encapsulating the vital importance of nurturing friendships and helping one another through many of life’s challenges. This story takes readers on a forty-year journey with two women facing incredible adversity, poverty, family struggles, losses through illness and death as well as betrayals in love. Their linked lives create a rock-solid friendship that deeply touches readers who have ever had a best friend.

Readers’ Favorite hosts a respected annual international award contest receiving thousands of entries from all over the world and has earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Penguin and Harper Collins.

“Competition was fierce. Often finalists were selected by extremely narrow margins and many great books could not be chosen,” says Debra Gaynor, CEO of Readers Favorite. “It was an extremely competitive year and selections were hard earned.” 

Winners will be announced on September 1st. For more information about the awards and for a list of finalists, please visit:
