Outside In recently won an IPPY in the 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards. Receiving a bronze medal in the Great Lakes – Best Regional Fiction category, Outside In is now a three-time award-winner, which also includes the 2014 USA Best Book Award and 2014 International Book Award.
The Independent Publisher Awards are presented by IndependentPublisher.com, “THE Voice of Independent Publishing,” operated by publishing services firm, Jenkins Group of Traverse City, Michigan. Launched in 1996, the “IPPY” Awards are designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers. Established as the first awards program open exclusively to independents, over 3,000 “IPPYs” have been awarded to authors and publishers around the world.
Independent publishers are extremely diverse, in both style and geography. This year’s IPPY medalists represent 45 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, six Canadian provinces, and ten countries overseas: Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
