A THOUSAND FLYING THINGS is  a Foreword Indies Finalist! 

Foreword Reviews read over 2,400 entries spanning 55 genres poured in for consideration. Selected by Foreword’s editorial team, the Finalists now await judgment from teams of librarian and bookseller judges nationwide.

I’m a finalist in the War & Military category, “in which the primary action takes place in a field of armed combat, or in a domestic setting (or home front) where the characters are preoccupied with the preparations for, or recovery from, war.”

“I am deeply impressed by the scope and range of books submitted this year. Each Finalist represents a significant contribution to the literary landscape and underscores the crucial role that independent authors and publishers play, ensuring a steady flow of diverse and thought-provoking content. The INDIES not only honors outstanding literary achievements but also helps to qualify and connect these exceptional books with librarians and booksellers alike,” said Christopher Nesbit, INDIES Award Director.

Winners in each genre, along with Editor’s Choice Prize winners and Foreword’s Indie Publisher of the Year, will be announced in June 2024.
