What’s New for 2013

In 2013 there are more categories than ever before — and more opportunities  to be recognized. This year features 10 book categories, along with a new non-book category.

Business books may be nominated if published in 2012, relevant to small businesses, and covering one of these topical areas:  marketing, technology, social media, management, economics, startup, self-help, leadership or personal finance.  There’s also a category for business classics, which is for all-time favorite business books published prior to 2012. Be sure to check out the overview of some of the new book nominations so far in this year’s Small Business Book Awards.

The non-book category is for publishing resources such as book publicists, ghost writing services, author apps (such as Story Tracker and the Write or Die app), and similar resources.  So if you know any good author apps, copywriters, publishing platforms and other resources, nominate them!
