"Way of the Baby" - ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award Finalist is proud to announce that the book "Way of the Baby: A Book of Five Grins" (ISBN: 0595358853, iUniverse) has been selected as a finalist in ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Award in the category of Parenting. "It is a great honor to be recognized by ForeWord Magazine, which is well known for its journalistic quality and leadership in identifying excellence in works from independent publishers. The company stands out as a visionary in its mission of empowering a new class of writers in this rapidly evolving segment of the publising industry" said author, Brian Hutchins.

Over the years ForeWord has had the distinct honor of acknowledging and recognizing excellence in publishing from independent presses. This year, the seventh annual, was no exception. From 1,540 book submissions to be considered for the 2005 Book of the Year Awards, an editorial team of judges narrowed the field to 604 finalists in 55 categories. Winners for Gold, Silver and Bronze will be determined by our readership of booksellers and librarians. ForeWord's BOTYA program was designed specifically for them to share in the process of discovering distinctive books across a number of genres with judgements based on their own authority in each category and on their patron/customer interests. The winners as well as Editor's Choice Prizes for Fiction and Nonfiction ($1500 each) will be announced at a special program at BookExpo America at the Washington Convention Center in Washington DC Friday, May 19th, 2006 from 3 - 4:30 PM in room 147A.
