When Tragedy Strikes
Diehl up against hundreds of authors worldwide for prestigious 2018 Author Academy Award

JANESVILLE, Wis. - Aug. 31, 2018 - Amzeal -- When Tragedy Strikes: Rebuilding Your Life with Hope and Healing after the Death of Your Child written by Janesville resident, Laura Diehl, is a top ten finalist for a 2018 Author Academy Award, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry.

Diehl's book is up for an award in the Advice category, which offers other grieving parents the relief they need to be understood, and walks with them through the darkness, being the life-line of hope they need that it is possible to live beyond the death of their child.

"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 considered for the award in one of sixteen categories. The finalists 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.
