community for aspiring writers to engage, encourage and appraise one another's work
-- announces the 3rd place winner of their Author Launch Contest, Amanda Crum.
Amanda Crum, a freelance writer from Lexington, Kentucky, unleashes her debut novel
"The Fireman's Daughter," a mysterious tapestry of familial loss, intrigue and illusion.
"The Fireman's Daughter" renders the story of a young woman who is trying to unravel
the mysteries of her mother's life and untimely drowning that occurred while she
was just a child. She seeks answers from her estranged father, entering a proverbial
rabbit hole, raising more questions and putting her life in jeopardy as she learns
about a strange coincidence and a gift that she had inherited from her mother.

"The Fireman's Daughter" is exemplary of a top-notch talent at the top of her literary

familial secrets, and a profound sense of danger, all inhabit the imagination and
world of Crum's lyrical and fiercely deep story.

mom and published author, has signed her first deal with a literary agent. Currently
Amanda is working on her second novel titled "The Wilds." Being a published writer
has allowed her to live one more dream: she can now Google herself.
