AMP creators win Goodreads Choice Awards

Andrews McMeel Publishing is excited to announce that two of its creators have won Goodreads Choice Awards 2018. Amanda Lovelace’s the witch doesn’t burn in this one won for Best Poetry Book. This is Amanda’s second time winning this category. Her book the princess saves herself in this one (the first title in her women are some kind of magic series) received the honor in 2016. This is the third time in a row, and fourth time overall, that an AMP title has won the poetry book award. In 2017, fans chose the sun and her flowers by Rupi Kaur, and in 2014, Lullabies by Lang Leav received the most votes.

Sarah Andersen’s Herding Cats also won for Best Graphic Novels & Comics, making 2018 the third consecutive year that Andersen has received this award. (Adulthood is a Myth won in 2016 and Big Mushy Happy Lump won in 2017.) Also nominated in this category was Catana Chetwynd’s Little Moments of Love, which came in second by number of votes.

Other AMP titles that received 2018 nominations were: Sea of Strangers by Lang Leav (Best Poetry Book); She Felt Like Feeling Nothing by r.h. Sin (Best Poetry Book); and the sun and her flowers by Rupi Kaur (Best of the Best).

Andrews McMeel congratulates its winners and nominees, and is proud of all its creators. The full list of Goodreads Choice Awards winners can be found here.
