Author / Book Winners Announced in Dream Book Competition

AuthorU is honored to announce and congratulate all the Winners and Finalists for the annual Draft to Dream Book Competition at the annual AuthorU Extravaganza held in Denver, CO this month. The Winners in each of the categories receive a variety of “prizes” including cover and interior design, ebook, audiobook consult, publishing consult, featured within Ingram when their book is published, one-year membership in AuthorU, Bublish, Association of Publishers for Special Sales and so much more.

Each submission had four judgings. In a few cases, it was so close, those additional judgings were completed to determine the final winner.

Anne Randolph, the author of Sweet Not Enough, was the Grand Prize Winner, gathering the highest number of points from the Judges. Comments from the judges included, “I loved this book.”

Thank you to all who participated … and to the many, many librarians and teachers who volunteered their time to participate as judges.
