“Being a Foreword INDIES winner is a big deal: in a year with a record number of entries, your book was selected by our editors as a finalist, then judged as a top pick by the librarian and bookseller assigned to your category,” wrote Michele Lonoconus, awards director of Foreword Reviews. Over 2,000 entries were submitted in 66 categories, with Foreword’s editors choosing the finalists, and a panel of over 150 librarians and booksellers acting as judges to pick the winners.
