iUniverse Publishing IPPY award winners make for great summer reads

Recently, the 2012 Independent Publisher Book Awards were named and the results were impressive. The number of entries this year was  the most ever, with more than 5,000 books in  a wide variety of genres entered for consideration. Perhaps no surprise, the largest category this year again was Memoir.  What was also interesting was IPPY medals were awarded to  entrants from 44 U.S. states plus D.C., 7 Canadian provinces, and 10 countries overseas. Indie publishing is truly a global phenomenon now, which is really exciting to see.

Once again iUniverse titles were recognized for their excellence in a wide variety of categories.  So if you are looking for new and upcoming authors to add to your reading list this summer, these books are a great place to start.
