The inaugural Business Book Awards, celebrating the best UK business book authors and publishers, has been launched at London’s Army & Navy Club in Pall Mall, London.
The lunch-time event was hosted by successful author and co-founder and managing editor of Rethink Press Lucy McCarraher, and the guest of honour was one of the UK’s most successful business book authors, Shaa Wasmund MBE.
Speaking at the event, Lucy McCarraher said, “New methods of business book publishing have come of age and authors, coaches, service providers and publishers in this area deserve to be celebrated.
“Of course, there are other awards for business books, some of which are very prestigious and longstanding. However, they either cover a very niche subject area or they will only accept entries from traditionally-published books. Some of them lack stature because they are judged by the public rather than by professionals.”
Authors or publishers wishing to enter the awards can do so through the website: https://www.businessbookawards.co.uk/.
The deadline for nominations is December 31 2017. Judging takes place in London on January 11 2018, the nominee shortlist is released on January 17 and the awards event takes place on March 16 2018 at The Grange City Hotel, London.
