Bywater Books & Amble Press are pleased to announce that four of our titles were selected as 2020 Foreword Reviews INDIES Book Awards winners.
TRAVERSE CITY, Michigan: June 17, 2021—Foreword Reviews has announced the winners of its INDIES Book of the Year Awards—the awards recognize the best books published in 2020 from small, independent, and university presses. For this year’s competition, over 2,100 entries were submitted in 55 categories, with Foreword’s editors choosing approximately 9 finalists per genre. Those finalists were then delivered to individual librarians and booksellers tasked with picking the Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honorable Mention winners.
Since 1998, Foreword Reviews has provided trade book reviews of the best titles from independent presses. In print, and online, its FOLIO award-winning design and editorial content make the magazine a favorite among librarians, booksellers, and readers—an excellent resource when it comes to purchasing books. Foreword INDIES and the fee-for-review Clarion service complement our online content and print magazine, helping to showcase independent presses and their authors.
