2012 Indie Book Award Winners Announced

Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group has named the best indie books of 2012. The books are winners of the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, a non-profit awards program judged by leaders in the indie book publishing industry to identify indie books that deserve to reach a wider audience. “We like to think of our awards program as the ‘Sundance’ of the book publishing world,” says Catherine Goulet , Chair of the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards program. Independent book publishing companies are independent of the major conglomerates that dominate the book publishing industry. The indies include small presses, larger independent publishers, university presses, e-book publishers, and self-published authors. According to Goulet, “Like other independent artists, many indie book publishers face challenges that the industry giants don’t experience. They typically have to work much harder to get their best books into the hands of readers.”
