Two JDM authors have swept up at the 2022 Aus Indies – Awards that recognise and celebrate indie booksellers as the number one supporters of Australian authors. What makes the Indies uniquely placed to judge and recommend the best Aussie books of the past year to their customers and readers, is their incredible passion and knowledge, their contribution to the cultural diversity of the Australian reading public by recommending books beyond the big brands, and their love of quality writing.
Lyn Yeowart’s The Silent Listener (Penguin Random House) won in the Debut Fiction Category!
Danielle Binks’s The Monster of Her Age (Lothian Children’s, Hachette) was the Young Adult category winner!
These books both published during ongoing unprecedented times, and were so wonderfully supported and championed by our fabulous Aussie Independent Booksellers. These wins are high-praise indeed, from that fabulous sector! We thank them and appreciate them, always!
