About Lw Clay
LW Clay graduated from Valparaiso University with a BA in Psychology and Criminal Justice. The plan was to become a police officer, but she found work in a psychiatric hospital on the adult in-patient unit first, and fell even deeper in love with psychology than when she was taking classes for her degree. The sad way of the world, though, is that psychiatric hospitals (especially state psych hospitals) are not well run, and as many of us have heard, most people suffering from severe mental illness end up homeless on the street or in jail. LW Clay tried her hand at both the psych hospital and law enforcement worlds and discovered that psych hospitals don't pay much if you aren't a doctor, and law enforcement just wasn't her calling after all. This is why she's decided to use her writing skills to raise awareness of mental health issues by tapping into her knowledge of psychology and criminal justice to put it all on the page in a paranormal mystery of sorts. This has gone on as a secret long enough. It's time to confront the truth.

Lw Clay, "Demontown"Demontown, written by Bradenton resident, LW Clay, has been chosen as a Top 10 Finalist for a 2018 Author Academy Award, an honor bestowed for literary merit and publishing excellence in the writing and publishing industry. LW Clay’s book, which is up for the First Place award in the Mystery category, tells the story of a Noah Greysen who unwittingly pressures the local doctor into performing experimental eye surgery on him. He then begins to see the demons we wrestle with, and the angels that save us. Across town, the “near-retired” detective is given one last chance to figure out the killer of the only cold case Guffrey has ever seen. “From over five hundred of books in sixteen categories from authors throughout the world up for an Author Academy Award, only ten in each category remain,” said Kary Oberbrunner, founder of Author Academy Elite and the Author Academy Awards. “Our goal is to help further connect this global community of authors, maintain excellence and integrity of the book publishing industry, and raise awareness that the stories being told and the authors who write them are worth our attention.” Authors of all kinds—indie (self-published), traditional, or collaborative published—have reached the Top 10 Finals for the award in one of sixteen categories. Finalists are being reviewed and evaluated on popular vote, social contribution, and overall presentation (cover, content, flow, and originality) by the Academy's voting membership comprised of best-selling authors, literary agents and industry leaders. The Top Ten finalists in each category will be invited to present their book synopsis at an Author Academy Awards Red Carpet Session on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio. Winners will be announced later that evening at the Author Academy Awards Ceremony where they will be invited to give an acceptance speech. Winners will also receive: • The Academy Boon of Merit Award. • Press release and media story presented to their hometown press by a professional PR firm. • Their name and book highlighted on the Read to Lead Podcast (over 2 million downloads). • A Private Group Coaching Session for all First Prize Winners with a YouTube Consultant on how to leverage your book with video. • Traditional Media and Social Media press including features on select podcasts, shows, vlogs, blogs, and articles. • Lifetime access to 30 Days to a Bigger Stage Experience, an online program helping authors get publicity for their book. • The opportunity to present their book synopsis at the Igniting Souls Conference main stage on the days immediately following Author Academy Awards in front of a global audience.
