The five category winners for the Costa Book Awards were announced yesterday.

These five books will compete for the overall title, to be revealed January 26: 

Each of these titles, deemed among the most outstanding books of the year written by UK- or Ireland-based authors, receives £5,000 ($6,800) and a chance at the £30,000 ($40,900) Costa Book of the Year prize.

The Bookseller notes that the majority of winning authors — Roffey, Lawrence, and Boland — are independently published.

Last year’s overall winner was The Volunteer by Jack Fairweather.
