I am very pleased to announce that The Thief’s Tale is the winner of the 2019 IRDA Prize for Fantasy!
The IndieReader Discovery Awards are an annual competition sponsored by IndieReader, Ingram Spark, Kirkus, and Amazon that are open to any books from small publishers and indie writers. The judges are a bunch of industry folks including bloggers, Kirkus editors, agents, and publicity execs.
The awards were announced June 1st at BookCon in NYC.
Here’s what the judges said: “Gripping from start to finish, THE THIEF’S TALE by Joel Manners gives us an underdog to root for as Wyn and her crafty crew risk all on a near-impossible venture that could bag them either glory or death, but death seems more likely as they race against time to outwit the odds and avoid the butcher’s bill. Vivid, violent and very addictive!”
