LIVONIA, Mich. - June 22, 2018 - PRLog -- BHC Press is pleased to announce THE RITE OF WANDS by Mackenzie Flohr has been named a winner in the 20th annual Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards.

Foreword Reviews, a book review journal focusing on independently published books, announced the winners of its INDIES Book of the Year Awards today. The INDIES recognize the best books published in 2017 from small, indie, and university presses.

"Awarding the INDIES is an intense months long judging process and our editorial team and librarian/bookseller judges grow a bit emotional as the announcement date nears," said Matt Sutherland, Foreword Reviews' editor-in-chief. "Everyone involved finds it a great honor to recognize all these great books because so many of them have been overlooked by mainstream publications due to the low profile of their publishers and authors. While they don't have major PR machine or corporate budgets, these indie publishers are passionate about what they do, take chances, and produce a wide range of thought-provoking books."

"We're looking forward to publishing book two in the series, THE RITE OF ABNEGATION, which releases in 2019."

Over 2,000 entries were submitted in 68 categories, with Foreword's editors choosing the finalists, and a panel of over 150 librarians and booksellers acting as judges to pick the winners.
