The CIPA EVVY Awards is one of the longest-running book awards competition on the Indie publishing scene. It is sponsored by the Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA), along with the CIPA Education and Literacy Foundation (ELF)
Each year, Outskirts Press officially nominates a small percentage of the books published during the year for submission to the EVVY Awards. A nomination is the first step toward receiving the Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Award, so the standards are exceedingly high. These nominations represent the very best of our publications as determined by Outskirts Press executives and members of the production teams. There is no obligation to accept the nomination; just being recognized is a great accomplishment.
Outskirts Press is proud to announce that it has 50 talented finalists being honored, the most among all participating publishers. Here are the 2016 Outskirts Press EVVY Finalists in random order. Congratulations to them all!
As a result of being nominated for the 22nd Annual EVVY Awards, these Outskirts Press authors have taken the first step toward winning the coveted Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Award. Three of the nominees above who subsequently win an EVVY Award during the CIPA banquet this coming August will be selected as Semi-Finalists for our annual Best Book of the Year Award and its $1,500 Grand Prize. Stay tuned.

|AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT & SUCCESS STORY|
“Lisa was outstanding every step of the way. As a first time author, I had plenty of questions and concerns, and Lisa was always there for me. I was extremely pleased with the final product.”
Charles Ayer lives in Vernon, Connecticut, with his wife, singer Claudia Ayer. They have three grown children. His second Walter Hudson novel, Pleasant Hollow, will be released in the near future.
Why did two apparently unrelated murder victims, a young prostitute and an unidentified Korean man, die on the streets of New York City with the same cryptic words, “A thousand points of light,” on their lips? NYPD Detective Sergeant Walter Hudson’s efforts to find out unexpectedly but inexorably lure him into the treacherous worlds of political intrigue, unchecked power, and limitless wealth-worlds that he is ill-equipped to understand. But he has to learn fast as he begins to peel back the layers of a monstrous plot that threatens not only the city he loves, but his country as well. It’s a race against time, and Detective Hudson has less time than he thinks.
– Charles Ayer, author of A Deadly Light
