To honor the very best of indie publishing each year, we've created the Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards!

Thousands of books are entered each year, and our panel of over 120 librarians and booksellers take part in the judging, narrowing it down to a group of finalists and winners that represent the best books, all independently published, in over 60 categories.
