"McGrath House is very pleased to be announcing the winners for each of the genre categories for the 2017 McGrath House Independent Book Awards!
Overall, we received hundreds of nominations across the genres, and our panel of judges were able to made a selection of four to five books per genre for the final round of voting. Over the past three months we have invited voting from readers and supports to select their favourite book in each genre category.
The Genre Winners are the books with the most votes in their respective categories. Each of the winners will receive by post an Award Certificate, as well as a logo which they can place on their books to celebrate their success and recognition as an award-winning book!
The voting was very close, and it was clear all books selected as finalists were popular with strong following. " - Rachel McGrath
