book-of-the-year-indiefab-finalist3A.D. Wolf’s Hooked has been named a finalist for the 18th Annual Indiefab Book of the Year Awards.

Each year, Foreword Reviews shines a light on a select group of authors whose work stands out from the crowd. In the next two months, a panel of more than 100 volunteer librarians and booksellers will determine the winners based on their experience with readers and patrons.

Hooked is a romantic comedy about a man who finds his perfect soulmate but his autism prevents him from realizing she’s actually a prostitute. The novel has already won the Gold Medal from the Readers’ Choice Awards and the Silver Medal from the Independent Publishing Awards.

“I’m thrilled to be nominated for this prestigious award,” says author Wolf. “After years of refining the story it’s encouraging whenever the novel is recognized.”

In their review of Hooked, Foreword Reviews writes, “Heartfelt, out-of-the-ordinary romance. This warm, witty story does not shy away from serious themes like exploitation, redemption, and true love. Hooked explores heavy issues with a light touch. It’s easy to see this being adapted into an enjoyable movie.”

Hooked is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold.
