IndieReader launched the IRDAs in order to help worthy indie authors get the attention of top indie professionals, with the goal of reaching more readers. Noted Amy Edelman, founder of IR, “The books that won the IRDAs this year are not just great indie books; they are great books, period. We hope that our efforts via the IRDAs insure that they receive attention from the people who matter most. Potential readers.”
Judges for the awards included notable publishers, agents, publicists and bloggers. Space Fandango: Backstabber’s Blues received the following verdict by IndieReader’s reviewers, “Henry Mosquera’s SPACE FANDANGO: BACKSTABBER’S BLUES is a wild and raucous pulpy adventure, a fusing of Firefly‘s space opera and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s self-aware humor.” Mosquera is a critically acclaimed, multiple award winning author in different genres. He is one of the true indie gems yet to be discovered by the mainstream. Mosquera’s new novel, Space Fandango, is an imaginative, high-octane blend of action, adventure, noir, humor, and drama that is sure to enthrall its readers.
“We authors work in isolation for long periods of time. Winning the IRDAs is amazing validation. It’s also an excellent way to help readers find great stories among the deluge of works being published in the current market. I couldn’t be happier,” said Mosquera.
