The judges have decided, the champagne is about to be uncorked, and the winners announced in the 2015 IndieReader Discovery Awards (IRDA) at BEA.
Indie Reader (IR), an ALLi Partner Member, is the brainchild of Amy Edelman, who set up the awards to give indie authors access to people who can make a difference in their book's success.
While writing a great book is the first step, letting readers know it's great is just as important.
And getting it in front of the right people can expand a book's success. The winning titles are submitted to agents Dystal & Goderich to be considered for representation.
So, without further ado, here are those lucky 2015 winners.
