Rising Up won the California Indie Author Project Award!


The fourth annual Indie Author Project regional contests ran in 14 U.S. states and two Canadian provinces and fielded almost a thousand submissions from indie authors of all types. In partnership with literary organizations and libraries across North America, these contests reflect an ongoing and expanding effort to encourage strong relationships between indie authors, public libraries, and readers. Out of all of the submissions, these winning titles reflect the best indie-published eBooks each region has to offer in adult and young adult fiction. These books— and hundreds of other top indie titles— are available with unlimited, multi-user access in the Indie Author Project Select collections on BiblioBoard Library, OverDrive, cloudLibrary, Axis 360, and more.
