The Sea Beach Line Named Foreword Reviews’ 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards Finalist


BEDFORD, New York (March 9, 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 finalist in the 18th annual Foreword Reviews’ INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards.

Each year, Foreword Reviews shines a light on a select group of indie publishers, university presses, and self-published authors whose work stands out from the crowd. In the next three months, a panel of more than 100 volunteer librarians and booksellers will determine the winners in 63 categories based on their experience with readers and patrons.

“The 2015 INDIEFAB finalist selection process is as inspiring as it is rigorous,” said Victoria Sutherland, publisher of Foreword Reviews. “The strength of this list of finalists is further proof that small, independent publishers are taking their rightful place as the new driving force of the entire publishing industry.”

“We are absolutely delighted to see Ben Nadler’s marvelous novel receive this latest recognition,” said Fredric D. Price, Fig Tree’s publisher. “Reviewers and readers have raved about The Sea Beach Line from the start; this honor is both well deserved and deeply appreciated.”

Foreword Reviews will celebrate the winners during a program at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida in June and will also name the Editor’s Choice Prize 2015 for Fiction, Nonfiction and Foreword Reviews’ 2015 INDIEFAB Publisher of the Year Award during the presentation.
