The National Indie Excellence® Awards (NIEA) was founded in 2007 by Ellen Reid to be a champion of self-publishers and small & independent presses who produce books of excellence in every aspect.  According to NIEA, books that are recognized as Finalists are in every way outstanding.  The difference between the Winner and Finalist books are often so minute that the call might have gone either way.
