I'm Michele, the Coordinator of Foreword Reviews' INDIEFAB Book of the Year awards and I want to let you all know about our competition. Foreword Reviews is a literary review magazine respected by librarians,booksellers, and avid readers. We celebrate indie books. This year we are excited to announce that we added an Authors 17 and Under category to our contest! We want young authors to get the recognition they deserve.

In order to enter, the book must be published in 2015 and have an ISBN and cannot be from any of the Big 5 publishers. As an extra incentive for the winner of this category, representation at the 2016 American Library Association's trade show in Orlando.

The fee to enter is $99 for the first category and $79 for any additional. You can register online here

Along with the trade show representation for the winner of this category, are cash prizes of $1500 for the Best Fiction and Non-Fiction books, finalists and winners can count on abundant recognition from all aspects of the book industry. In March, finalists are revealed, and in June, winners are announced at the American Library Association Annual Conference and will also be featured in the print and digital edition of Foreword Reviews. The finalists and winners lists will be promoted on our website and in our e-mail newsletter Foreword This Week as part of a national publicity campaign, along with lots of attention on our popular social media sites.

For more information you can go to, email or call 231-933-3699.

We'd love to see your entry in our competition!
