So excited to receive notification that MEANT TO BE has been recognized as a finalist in the 18th annual Foreword Reviews INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards!
Combining military suspense, patriotism, and romance, MEANT TO BE tells the tale of two people who meet by chance on the beach and find their lives intertwined in a way neither one imagined. The Military Writers Society of America described it as “a tapestry of emotion deeply set inside the bravest of Americans: the soldier,” while Publishers Weekly, the industry’s leading trade journal, called it “an endearing page turner,” and “sweetly sentimental and moving.”
Each year, Foreword Reviews shines a light on a select group of indie publishers, university presses, and 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.
“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.
