Last Words was named a finalist in the mystery category of the 17th annual Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards on March 12. Here is the complete list of finalists.
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 June 26.
