Congratulations to our EVVY Award Winners!

The 25th Annual Colorado Independent Book Publishers Association EVVY Awards Banquet took place in Denver, Colorado last Saturday night, and as often happens, Outskirts Press demonstrated that award-winning writers publish an unparalleled number of award-winning books at Outskirts Press. We are proud to announce that Outskirts Press authors took home a total of 14 impressive 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd-place awards.

Winning an EVVY Award is a prerequisite to winning the coveted Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Award and its $1,500 Grand Prize. Stay tuned to find out which three authors from the winners below will be the finalists for that prestigious prize! The Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Award will be determined by the readers of our blog, Self-Publishing News, in an open, public vote beginning September 9th.
