Texas is Offering the World some of its Best Authors

Austin, TX – Texas has a great many things to be proud of and we Texans are eager to share that with our fellow Americans. It is with great fan fare that we also spotlight the writers of Texas through the Non-Profit organization Texas Association of Authors (TAA).

TAA was launched in 2011 to help bring attention to the many talented writers that call Texas their home, both physically and emotionally. Through this endeavor, TAA has been out and about at various events over the past year to let people know about our great selection of books written by Texas authors.

It is also with great Texas pride, that TAA announces the winners of its first annual book contest. It was a tough decision to narrow down the best from the many books that were submitted to TAA this year. Here are our first place winners from the many talented people that call Texas home:
