It's a very noble thing to recognize and award books/writers from both small publishing houses and independent publishers because this helps them get a piece of the cake among the public because it gives the recognition and publicity.
Question though; Is there a bigger award in Indiana that a book can get other than ForeWord's Book of the Year Award especially from the independent publishers and small publishing houses?
Anybody who knows any essay writing book has ever won an award or ever been nominated for any award? Please share.
