The IBW Book Award shortlist of ten adult and 12 children’s titles were selected by a judging panel of independent booksellers who chose them as the best independent titles for the year, from nominations put forward by publishers.
The IBW Book Award is unique amongst book prizes as it is the only award chosen by independent booksellers in the UK and their customers.
The winning authors are voted for by the public who can vote cast their votes from the start of Independent Booksellers Week on Saturday until the end of August on voting slips in bookshops.
The overall winners will be announced in early September after the public vote has closed.
Last year, Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal won the adult category and the children’s prize was awarded to Eoin Colfer for Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex.
