Got some pretty great news about Summer Love last night. Which, believe me, came as a lovely end to a less than stellar flooding-filled day.
I am lucky enough to have read all three of these books (and be included in one of them). Despite my biases, I think they are all pretty spectacular.
THREE INTERLUDE PRESS-DUET BOOKS TITLES NAMED FOREWORD REVIEWS’ 2015 INDIEFAB BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD FINALISTS
Interlude Press authors Charlotte Ashe and Courtney Lux, and the writing team spearheaded by Managing Editor Annie Harper were recognized today as finalists in the 18th annual Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards.
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.
Interlude Press titles were singled out in three separate categories:
Fantasy: Charlotte Ashe’s epic novel of political intrigue, escape and romance, The Heart of All Worlds, Book One: The Sidhe.
LGBT: Courtney Lux’s acclaimed debut novel, Small Wonders, a delicate tale of a runaway’s unexpected discovery of love in the big city.
Anthology: Summer Love, a collection of nine short stories about young love, from Duet Books, the Young Adult imprint of Interlude Press.
“We’re honored to again be singled out by Foreword Reviews in multiple IndieFab categories. Interlude Press takes great pride in publishing exceptional LGBT fiction and introducing readers to extraordinary writers,” said Harper, the company’s founding partner.
“The 2015 INDIEFAB finalist selection process is as inspiring as it is rigorous,” said Victoria Sutherland, publisher of Foreword Reviews. “The strength of this list of finalists is further proof that small, independent publishers are taking their rightful place as the new driving force of the entire publishing industry.”
Foreword Reviews will celebrate the winners during a program at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida in June.
