Los Angeles -- The 9th Annual 2015 National Indie Excellence® Awards recognized Leaving Montana, by Thomas Whaley, in the category of Literary Fiction as a winner in this year's competition.

This prestigious national award, based in Beverly Hills, California is open to all English language books in print from small, medium, university, self and independent publishers.

The National Indie Excellence® Awards exist to help establish independent publishing as a strong and proud facet of the publishing industry. Recognizing authors that put their heart and soul into their work, the National Indie Excellence® Awards is proud to be a champion of self-publishers and small and independent presses that go the extra mile to produce books of excellence in every aspect. Awarded since 2007, the National Indie Excellence® Awards competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the indie book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters.

Winners and finalists are determined based on overall excellence of presentation in addition to the writing. Leaving Montana is a literary fiction book about the discovery of a 40-year-old secret discovered by a man who must now confront his past… and more than a few dysfunctional family secrets.

We are proud to announce the winners & finalists whose books truly embody the excellence that this award was created to celebrate, and we salute you all for your fine work”, said National Indie Excellence® Awards Award President & CEO, Ellen Reid.
