A.D. Wolf’s romantic comedy novel Hooked won the Gold Medal from the Literary Classic Awards. Selected from submissions by entrants around the world, Hooked was recognized as exceptional literature by the panel of judges comprised of experts with backgrounds in publishing, writing, editing, design, illustration, and book reviewing.

Hooked is about a man who believes he found his perfect soulmate but his autism prevents him from realizing she’s actually a prostitute. In its review, Literary Classics called Hooked “a wonderfully comedic and light-hearted read. This book could easily be made into a movie, which is no surprise given that the author is also a filmmaker. Hooked is replete with comedy, action, drama and suspense.”

Wolf was thrilled to receive the award. “I appreciate all the recognition Hooked has received. I especially love hearing feedback from readers about how much the story moved them. These awards are icing on that cake.”

Hooked also won a Book of the Year Award from Foreword Reviews, Gold Medal from Readers’ Favorite Book Awards, and the Silver Medal from the Benjamin Franklin Book Awards, among others. Kirkus Reviews called Hooked, “Entertaining, Well-Paced, and Highly Visual. It’s a charming, humorous, and hopeful tale. A quirky, touching love story that offers insights into autism, religion, and personal tragedy.”

Literary Classics is dedicated to furthering excellence in literature while promoting classic literature that appeals to youth, while educating and encouraging positive values. Judging was based upon the criteria set forth by the awards committee which seeks to honor books promoting character, vision, creativity and learning, through content which educates and inspires audiences. The Literary Classics Award Ceremony will be held in conjunction with the Great American Book Festival in Rapid City, South Dakota, over Labor Day Weekend in 2017.

Hooked is available in print, eBook, or Audiobook from AmazonBarnes and NobleBooks-a-Million, and at local bookstores through Indiebound.
