Hit the Polls! Vote for the 2021 Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year

Just days ago, we announced the three finalists in this year’s Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year awards. All three of our finalists were 1st place winners of a 2021 EVVY Award sponsored by the Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA). 

The time has come to vote on which of these talented authors have built an author platform and worked up the promotional muscle to acquire Outskirts Press’ top honors through a head-to-head competition! The title of “Best Book of the Year” and $1,500 will be awarded based on the results of a live public poll … which is where you come in!

Our three finalists couldn’t be more different, and you’ll find summaries of each book below. So, study your choices, visit their webpages and social media, watch their book trailer videos and cast your vote. Voting is easy! Simply scroll down to the poll, below, to place your vote for the book you think deserves our top honors in the 2021 Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year competition!
