Wait, what? My strange and vulgar unicorn-killing anti-hero, Dolph, has been named a finalist for a prestigious award?!
In a competition with thousands of other entrants, I’m genuinely humbled that Dolph has made it this far.
Here’s the official Press Release:
Traverse City, MI, March 20, 2018—As part of its mission to discover, review, and share the best books from university and independent publishers, Foreword Reviews is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2017 INDIES Book of the Year Awards.
More than 2,000 entries spread across 68 genres were submitted for consideration. The list of finalists was determined by Foreword’s editorial team. Winners are now being decided by a panel of judges across the country, reflecting Foreword’s readership of booksellers and librarians.
The complete list of finalists can be found at:
“Choosing finalists for the INDIES is always the highlight of our year, but the job is very difficult due to the high quality of submissions,” said Victoria Sutherland, founder/publisher of Foreword Reviews. “Each new book award season proves again how independent publishers are the real innovators in the industry.”
Winners in each genre—along with Editor’s Choice Prize winners and Foreword’s INDIE Publisher of the Year—will be announced June 15, 2018.
June will be here before you know it, so, if you’ve got a couple of spare fingers, keep ‘em crossed for me.
