Our annual Small Business Book Awards are a way to highlight the books that entrepreneurs are reading and learning from.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 13, 2012
Kathryn Rose, CEO of the content and blog syndication system, Social Buzz Club, social media author and keynote speaker, has been awarded the 2012 Small Business Book Award in the category of Social Media. Her book, "The Step by Step Guide to Facebook for Business" was the top vote getter in the Social Media category.
The Small Business Book Awards recognize business books that were published in 2011. Small business owners often seek advice and information through books. While there are many thousands of books published each year, it's those of interest to small businesses and entrepreneurs that the Small Business Book Awards seek to honor.
"With so many books being published each year, we wanted to recognize those that made a difference to small business owners and managers and startup entrepreneurs," said Ivana Taylor, Book Editor at Small Business Trends, which produces the Awards. "Our annual Small Business Book Awards are a way to highlight the books that entrepreneurs are reading and learning from."
“The Awards are an honor to the authors who write books for the small business and entrepreneurial community.” Says Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends, "For many of the authors, writing a book is a labor of love. Often they get up early in the morning before the rest of the family awakes, and they devote their evenings, weekends, holidays and vacations to writing. They deserve recognition."
“I was absolutely thrilled to be nominated and then to win. I had some great books in my category as competition and I’m just so happy that people thought enough of my book to vote for it and make it number one,” says Rose.
