We’re pleased to announce our 2018 titles continue to receive recognition from the greater publishing community:

Under The Radar Michigan: The Next 50 by Tom Daldin, Jim Edelman and Eric Tremonti was awarded a bronze medal in Best Regional Nonfiction, Great Lakes, from the 2019 Independent Publisher Book Awards.

Scribe Publishing Company’s “Jazzy Vegetarian’s Deliciously Vegan” has been announced a finalist in the prestigious IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards program, which recognizes excellence and innovation in independent publishing.

The awards program includes over fifty categories recognizing excellence in book editorial and design. Jazzy Vegetarian’s Deliciously Vegan is a finalist in the “cover design – large format” category.

“The mission of the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards is simple: to recognize excellence and innovation in independent publishing,” said IBPA CEO Angela Bole. “Unlike many other award programs, the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards demand both editorial and design excellence and entrants are judged independently on both.”

Winners will be announced in April. The full list of finalists is available here.
