Last year Outskirts Press announced a new contest recognizing the best in self-publishing: its own Best Book of the Year Award. This award identifies the overall best book Outskirts Press publishes each year. One of the requirements to be considered for the Best Book of the Year Award is to win an EVVY Award. Those winners were displayed in yesterday’s blog posting.
From among the most recent EVVY Award winners, Outskirts Press selected three books as Best Book of the Year 2010 finalists. Those books and their respective authors were identified and notified yesterday. Please join us in publicly congratulating them today:
