I entered Gesso Squad the Graphic Novel Volume One: 1,000 Star Demons and a Rain God into the National Indie Excellence 2012 Book Awards Festival earlier this year. I received the results yesterday and as it turns out, we won the Indie Excellence Award in the Speciality Books Category. I didn’t win a prize, but I’m happy with the results. NIEA posts a list of all the winners and finalists on their website. They also advertise a list of the winners and finalists in Publisher’s Weekly and Publisher’s Daily with a banner ad linking to the site.In September, I will get the results from the New York Book Festival and the Reader’s Favorite Book Awards.
