Desiri Okobia up against hundreds of authors worldwide for prestigious 2021 Author Elite Award LONDON – Sept. 13, 2021 – — “Kitsu’s Diay,” written by London, UK resident, Desiri Okobia, has been nominated for a 2021 Author Elite Award, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry.Desiri Okobia’s book is up for an award in the Young Adult Fiction category, which is a classic retelling of ‘good girl meeting bad boy,’ written from the angle of Kitsu’s Diary recollections. It gives insight into the mind of a teenage girl and why they fall for guys who for all intents and purposes should be avoided.”Four years ago we launched an experiment called the annual Author Elite Awards. In the process we’ve attracted many of the best authors in the world,” said Kary Oberbrunner, founder of Igniting Souls Publishing Agency and the Author Elite Awards. “Our goal is to celebrate a force that creates life change in our society—books and the authors who write them. In our noisy world, books offer a unique appeal—the ability to lose ourselves in a story. Nothing else provides such transcendence.”Authors of all kinds—indie (self-published), traditional, or collaborative published—are being considered for the award in one of twelve categories. Entries are being reviewed and evaluated on popular vote, social contribution, and overall presentation (cover, content, flow, and originality).If interested in supporting Desiri Okobia and participating in the popular vote portion of the award evaluation, visit AuthorEliteAwards.com and click the “Vote Now” button.
