Future House Publishing Sweeps State Book Awards after Only Two Years of Publishing

Provo, Utah – November 21, 2016 – Future House Publishing stands amazed as books MARROW, STORMS, and CARETAKER sweep the 2016 Utah Book Award in the Young Adult Book category. After 2 years of publishing, founder Adam Glendon Sidwell is ecstatic about the success Future House has seen.

Preston Norton’s winning book, MARROW, hit #1 bestseller in “Teen and Young Adult Superhero Fiction” on Amazon. Jacob Gowans, bestselling author of the Psion Beta series says of this adventure; “Fans of comics, superheroes, and stories with twist after twist will love Marrow. It’s filled with nods and homages to classic heroes, yet still manages to put a unique stamp on the genre.” Preston is represented by Jenny Bent of The Bent Agency.

Finalist STORMS is book 2 of Kevin L. Nielsen’s “Sharani” series. Book 1, SANDS, hit the #1 bestseller list and received audiobook deals from Tantor Media and book 3, SKIES, has been in print since August 2016. STORMS is described by James Ramos, author of That Girl, Darcy: A Pride and Prejudice Story as “A sweepingly epic tale of survival and magic. A definite must-read.”

Finalist CARETAKER is Book 1 of Josi Russell’s “Caretaker Chronicles,” followed up with 2 other books, GAURDIANS and SENTINEL, and 1 short story, “Stasis Dreams.” CARETAKER also has received audiobook deals from Tantor Media. Author Josi Russell teaches creative writing and fiction courses as an Associate Professor of English for Utah State University Eastern.
