2014 Indie Book Awards Winners Announced

2014 Indie Book Awards Winners

The winners of the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards have been revealed by the Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group, spotlighting indie books that deserve more readers.

“We like to think of our awards program as the ‘Sundance’ of the book publishing world,” said Catherine Goulet, Chair of the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards program. “Like other independent artists, many indie book publishers face challenges that the industry giants don’t experience. They typically have to work a lot harder to get their best books into retail stores and ultimately into the hands of readers.”
