First Time Author, Leah Fort, Nominated for Global Author Academy Award

Leah Fort, author of Your Royal Rendezvous, is nominated for a 2020 Author Academy Award, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence.

AMARILLO, TEXAS, USA, June 5, 2020 / -- Your Royal Rendezvous by Leah Fort is nominated for a 2020 Author Academy Award, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence.

Leah’s book is a contender for the prestigious global award in the Religious Nonfiction category. Using her own story of overcoming childhood traumas and ensuing crippling fear, Leah reveals a life-transforming process that paves the way to victorious living. The reader eradicates limiting beliefs by learning to confront and collapse old mindsets, collect right information about themselves and their identity in God’s Kingdom, and convert their thinking, enabling them to connect to life and relationships in a new and more effective way.

Fort, an ordained minister, invests in others by helping them overcome self-limiting issues through counseling, coaching, writing, and speaking. She states, “With this positive connection to life, we will make a significant mark and a positive impact on the world around us.”

Per Kary Oberbrunner, founder of Author Academy Elite, “Hundreds of books from authors throughout the world are up for an Author Academy Award. Our goal is to connect a global community of authors, maintain excellence and integrity in the book publishing industry, and raise awareness about the authors.”

Entries are reviewed and evaluated on popular vote, social contribution, and overall presentation including cover, content, and originality, by the Academy’s voting membership of best-selling authors, literary agents, and industry leaders.

The top ten finalists in each category will present a synopsis of their book at a Red-Carpet Session on October 23, 2020, in Columbus, Ohio. Winners will be announced at a ceremony that evening.
