Jeremy Wagner says: "I'm pretty floored to receive an IPPY award for RABID HEART. This novel is very special to me--as is dark fiction/horror fiction which is the genre I embrace. So, I look at being recognized for 'Excellence in Independent Publishing' as a win for myself and also for my publisher--Riverdale Avenue Books--and for the horror genre. I'm so honored! 

Also, winning a Bronze medal for Best Author Website is HUGE for me as well, and I share this medal with my website designer Tony Bosco who collaborated on it (www.jeremy-wagner.com) with me and then took it to the next level. See you all at the IPPY Awards in NYC Times Square. Cheers!"

Each year since 1996, the Independent Publisher Book Awards competition has identified a reading list of progressive, thought-provoking books, the kind that can touch lives, advance careers, and stretch our imaginations. With the tag line, "Recognizing Excellence in Independent Publishing," the IPPY Awards showcase the best books from throughout North America and the English-speaking world. Launched as the first unaffiliated awards program open exclusively to independent, university, and self-published titles, the awards are presented each spring at a gala ceremony during the BookExpo America convention in New York. Winners receive gold, silver and bronze medals and foil seals for their book covers. 

The IPPY Awards are presented by publishing services firm Jenkins Group of Traverse City, Michigan and IndependentPublisher.com, "the online voice of independent publishing."
