Independent Publisher Book Awards

I'm a finalist.

Each year, Independent Publisher, the voice of the independent publishing industry, bestows Independent Publishing Awards, known as IPPYs, on books in several categories (several being an understatement). IP has just announced the 2010 finalists: Announcing the Finalists in the 2010 Independent Publishing Book Awards.

You'll have to scroll down to the regional awards, but there you'll find that I am a finalist in the Best Regional Fiction, Mid-Atlantic category for my book In an Uncharted Country. It appears that there are only three finalists, so I suppose I get a bronze medal in any case--but I'll cross my fingers for gold all the same!
