The Sea Beach Line Named INDIEFAB Book of the Year Bronze Award Winner

BEDFORD, New York (June 27, 2016)—Today, Fig Tree Books LLC is pleased to announce that The Sea Beach Line, a novel by Ben Nadler, has been recognized as a Bronze winner in the 18th annual Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards.

Narrowed down from nearly 2,000 entries by a panel of librarians and booksellers, along with Foreword Reviews’ editorial staff, the winners in 66 categories are considered the year’s best books published by independent publishers, university presses, and self-published authors. Foreword Reviews made the announcement in a live presentation at the American Library Association Annual Conference. A complete list of winners can be found at:

“Foreword’s INDIEFAB judges are the key to our winners selection process, and, in our minds, the most foolproof way to choose award-winning books,” said Victoria Sutherland, publisher of Foreword Reviews. “We work with a librarian and bookseller in each category to provide us with an insider’s perspective on what would do well on consumer and library shelves. Using industry professionals confirms the trade quality of a book.”

“We are absolutely delighted to see Ben Nadler’s exceptional novel receive this recognition,” said Fredric D. Price, Fig Tree’s publisher. “This honor, especially coming from a community of booksellers and librarians, is deeply appreciated.”
