Foreword Reviews’ 2014 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards Finalists Announced

Traverse City, MI, March 12, 2015—Today, Foreword Reviews is pleased to announce the finalists for the 17th annual INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards. For a full list of the finalists, searchable by genre, visit:

Each year, Foreword Reviews shines a light on a select group of indie publishers, university presses, and self-published authors whose work stands out from the crowd.

In the next three months, a panel of more than 100 volunteer librarians and booksellers will determine the winners in 63 categories based on their experience with readers and patrons.

“After 17 years, our awards program has become synonymous with quality because our editors set such a high bar on the finalist round, which makes it especially tough for the judges who select the winners,” said Victoria Sutherland, publisher of Foreword Reviews. “In every genre, our judges will find an interesting, high-quality selection of books culled from this year’s entries.”

Foreword Reviews will celebrate the winners during a program at the American Library Association Annual Conference in San Francisco on Friday, June 26 at 6 p.m. at the POPTOP stage in the main exhibit hall. Everyone is welcome. We will also name the Editor’s Choice Prize 2014 for Fiction, Nonfiction and Foreword Reviews’ 2014 INDIEFAB Publisher of the Year Award during the presentation.
