ReTested: The Story of a Post-Abortive Woman Called to Change the Conversation up against hundreds of authors worldwide for prestigious 2019 Author Academy Award
ReTested, written by Cheryl Krichbaum, is a finalist for the 2019 Author Academy Awards, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry.
Up for an award in the Memoir category, Krichbaum’s book tells her story of how she responds with increasingly better ways to the same family circumstance—or “test”—over 30+ years as well as how she sees the abortion conversation needs to change.
Endorsed by Abby Johnson and Kim Ketola, ReTested is the first in the Faces of Abortion Series.
“Hundreds of books from authors throughout the world are up for an Author Academy Award,” said Kary Oberbrunner, founder of Author Academy Elite. “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, traditional, and collaboratively published—are considered for the award in one of sixteen categories. Entries are 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.
If interested in supporting Krichbaum by participating in the popular vote, go to authoracademyawards.com and scroll to the “Ready to Vote?” section. Once there, click to the Memoir category, then click ReTested.
The top ten finalists in each category are invited to present their book at the Author Academy Awards Red Carpet Session on Friday, Oct. 25, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio.
