Witness both ordinary and emotionally fraught family scenes as they face the literal and metaphorical powerful storms as the story unfolds

“She knew what to expect. She knew that she couldn’t change the script either—so she just sat and watched each scene play out, unmoved, unshaken.” ”

— excerpt from the book

CANTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, September 13, 2023/ — The publication of this work is the result of the collaboration between the inspiring and dedicated author, Maria Fernandez Snitzer, and the publisher Author Reputation Press.

Recently, “Storms” by Maria Fernandez Snitzer was displayed at the 2023 American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference. It is the oldest and largest library association in the world. It was founded on October 6, 1876, during the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The mission of ALA is “to provide leadership for the development, promotion and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.”

Maria Fernandez Snitzer’s “Storms” was nominated for the 2023 Eric Hoffer Book Award. This award commemorates the memory of the famous American philosopher Eric Hoffer by honoring outstanding writing and the independent spirit of small publishers. Since its foundation, Hoffer has grown to become one of the most prestigious worldwide book awards for small, academic, and independent presses.

The same work was displayed at the 2023 Bologna Book Fair. The 2023 Bologna Children’s Book Fair presents the New Title Showcase on its 60th anniversary. The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is an industry-leading event that has succeeded in bringing together a unique and diverse global audience thanks to 60 years of experience. As a result, the world’s premier copyright exchange hub for publishing has emerged, which also includes current multimedia and licensing businesses for children’s stories, illustration, animation, and related areas.

The book’s accomplishments do not stop there; “Storms” was also displayed at the 2023 London Book Fair (LBF), which is the global marketplace for story creators and the industry’s essential spring chapter. Staged annually in April, LBF welcomes publishing professionals from around the world to London to learn, network, and kick off their year of business.

Maria Fernandez Snitzer is praised by Kate Robinson of the US Review of Books, acknowledging that –

“The author, a Louisiana native, writes elegantly of the literal and metaphorical storms that batter the generations in this literary family drama. The story opens as protagonist Elise Charleville Steiner dreams of the calm her maternal grandmother, Lala, always displayed, knowing that life had a way of returning to normal after any storm. As the author’s debut novel wends its circuitous path through both ordinary and emotionally fraught family scenes over the next week, a powerful hurricane sweeps across the Caribbean, with landfall predicted near Elise’s community of Bayou Chouteau. It is a study of action and reaction.”

She was also interviewed by Ric Bratton in an episode of This Week in America. The interview is an opportunity for readers and other authors to get to know aspiring and inspiring authors of this literary generation and to discover newly published books.
