About Independent Publisher’s IPPY Awards
Independent Publisher’s (IPPY) Awards, launched in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers. Established as the first awards program open exclusively to independents, over 3,000 IPPYs have been awarded to authors and publishers around the world.
The 2015 IPPY medalists represent 45 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, six Canadian provinces, and ten countries overseas: Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom. (See the 2015 complete listing.)
In 2015 over 2,750 independent authors and publishers participated in the 19th annual Independent Publisher Book Awards contest.
Every book entered gets evaluated in each of these areas, and if they score well are assessed further and judged against the other top books in the category.
- First Impression – front, back and inside – would you pull it from the bookstore or library shelf?
- Design – Cover design, typeface, message, front and back – does the cover make you want to look inside? Interior layout, typeface, illustrations – is it easy to read; is it a pleasure to look at?
- Originality – is it a fresh approach? Has it been done too much?
- Use of language – Grammar style, voice – does it flow? Does it make you want to keep reading?
- Message delivery – is the message promised by the cover being delivered, and in a compelling way?
- Relevance – is the book pertinent to our time? Is this a message that should be heard?
How do I eat soup correctly? Is it ever okay to butter the entire dinner roll before eating it? Do I hold my white wine glass differently than a red wine glass? Does it really matter?
Each table setting page offers etiquette tips for both host and guest, created to ease you through uncomfortable dining moments.
The “Always and Never” section succinctly answers 26 little questions you may have about dining etiquette-most importantly, the big one: Which Fork Do I Use?
A sample of what you will learn…
Remove non-edible objects, such as fish bones, olive pits, gristle, or fat, with your fingers or flatware and place them on the edge of your plate.
My friend likes to text on her cell phone at dinner. She thinks it’s all right because she does it in her lap and not on the table. Is that okay?
I’ve been to a lot of dinner parties and they all seem the same. Any ideas on adding excitement to mine?
Consider theme parties as a way to add excitement to a dinner party, like a sushi dinner, fondue, set up a dessert buffet or perhaps serve a cheese course in place of dessert. The book describes how to pull them off with flair and great fun!
The book is filled with suggestions on being a great guest and host. For example, if you bring your host flowers, bring them in a vase so the host doesn’t have to scurry around to find one or send them in advance, or as a thank you gift after the party.

And NO, it is not okay to text at the table during dinner.
