The Puppeteer's Daughters is a Finalist for the Forword Indies Book of the Year (General Fiction)!

The Puppeteer's Daughters has been recognized as a Finalist in the 25th annual Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards!

As part of its mission to discover, review, and share the best books from university and independent publishers, Foreword Magazine, Inc. hosts an annual awards program each year. Finalists represent the best books published in 2022. After more than 2,500 individual titles spread across 55 genres were submitted for consideration, the Finalists were determined by Foreword’s editorial team. Winners will be decided by an expert team of booksellers and librarians—representing Foreword’s trade readership—from across the country.

“Our goal for the INDIES Book of the Year awards Finalists gives us a chance to recognize great projects from small presses, and mirrors our mission of discovering outstanding books as showcased in Foreword Reviews. This year’s Finalists represent the top offerings in each genre, from debut author publishers to established university and independent presses,” says Publisher Victoria Sutherland. “It’s really a wonderful tribute to the independent voices that don’t often get the recognition they deserve.”

I'm thrilled to be in such good company with the other finalists in General Fiction!
