SEATTLE – June 16, 2013 –
The votes are in and Amazon customers have chosen Rysa Walker of Cary, N.C.
as the Grand Prize winner of the sixth annual Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award
contest for her young adult novel Timebound. The award was announced this
evening during a ceremony at the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle. Timebound
will be released October 22, 2013 by Skyscape – an imprint of Amazon Children's
Publishing – and Walker will receive a publishing contract with a $50,000 advance.
Walker's Timebound was inspired by her love of history and science fiction and explores how the choices we make affect our future. In the novel, 17-year-old Kate learns that she's inherited a genetic license to time travel when her grandmother shares a strange blue medallion, an even stranger tale about future historians, and the unshakeable conviction that the fate of half the planet lies in Kate's hands. The book is now available for pre-order in print and Kindle formats on Amazon.com at www.amazon.com/abna.
