ForeWord Reviews’ Book of the Year Awards program was established to help publishers shine an additional spotlight on their best titles and bring increased attention to librarians and booksellers of the literary and graphic achievements of independent publishers and their authors. Award winners are chosen from real librarians and booksellers, who are on the front lines everyday working with patrons and customers.
The finalists were selected from 1400 entries in 56 categories. These books are examples of independent publishing at its finest.
Look for the winners to be announced in June. Congratulations to our authors for their stellar work!
