FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Wallace, Idaho)—ZADRA PUBLISHING is pleased to announce that “Mike & Me”, a groundbreaking book for Alzheimer’s couples and caregivers, has been named a Finalist in the 21st annual Foreword INDIES “Book of the Year Awards.”
As part of its mission to discover the best Independent Books in the U.S., Foreward Magazine hosts an annual awards program. “Mike & Me” is one of the top Finalists representing the best books published in 2018. After more than 2,000 individual titles spread across 56 genres were submitted for consideration, the list of Finalists was determined by Foreword’s editorial team. In June, the top winners will be announced by an expert team of booksellers and librarians from across the country.
The “Mike & Me” book cover and showcase can be seen at: https://www.forewordreviews.com/awards/books/mike-and-me/ “Determining the INDIES Finalists is such a rewarding process,” said Victoria Sutherland, founder/publisher of Foreword Reviews. “Each year we are reminded what a vital part of publishing indie presses occupy.”
Dan Zadra of ZADRA PUBLISHING commented: “We are winning the war on Alzheimer’s—it’s happening—and one of the most important fronts in the battle is the home front. “Mike & Me” is one of the most important books to chronicle the changing face of home care among Alzheimer’s couples. It shows how the astonishing power of love, patience, compassion and stay-at-home care can help Alzheimer’s patients defy the usual statistics and live a longer, fuller, happier life despite this discouraging disease. ZADRA PUBLISHING is very proud of this author, this book and this award.”
Top winners in each genre—along with Editor’s Choice Prize winners and Foreword’s INDIE Publisher of the Year—will be announced June 14, 2019.
Author’s Comment: “The decision to stand up to Alzheimer’s in your own home can now be a viable consideration for virtually all couples. By managing Alzheimer’s at home, Mike and I experienced 10 full years of life, love and laughter together. This new guidebook will show you how.”
