The awards, which were judged by a select group of librarians and booksellers from around the country, were announced on June 26, 2015 at the American Library Association Annual Conference in San Francisco, C.A. Representing hundreds of independent and university presses of all sizes, INDIEFAB winners were selected after months of editorial deliberation with more than 1,500 entries in 63 categories. The winners represent the best work coming from today's indie authors and publishers.
In "Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project," readers plunge into a sci-fi conspiracy storyline featuring former FBI agent William Harrison, a reluctant but admirable hero who finds himself hot on the trail of a major extraterrestrial cover-up. "Truth Insurrected" has also garnered Douglas accolades from BestThrillers.com, which named him as one of 2015's Best New Mystery and Thriller Genre Writers.
"I am thrilled to be honored with an INDIEFAB award, especially for my debut novel," said Douglas. "The book is centered on UFO disclosure so I am happy that it is getting this extra attention and recognition. It is a subject that I care a lot about."
The new science fiction book draws on the mystery of ancient aliens, in particular, reptilian humanoids, and related conspiracy theories about their alleged, past involvement with humans and possible engineering of our genes.
