Voting Now Open for Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award
Charlotte, NC, February 2, 2015—Voting is now officially open for the 2015 Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award. The Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award honors books produced by small publishers for outstanding contribution to Christian life. All retailers selling Christian products and all readers of Christian books are invited to vote for the Book of the Year.
“The publishing industry is changing. Today, almost half of all books published are independently published. With this changing book market, Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award is a vital venue to help shed light on new, quality books published outside of traditional publishing houses,” states Sarah Bolme, Director of Christian Small Publishers Association (CSPA), which sponsors the award.
All Christian book readers are invited to vote for one book in each category online at www.BookoftheYear.net. Voters will choose one book in each of thirteen categories: General Fiction, Romance, Historical Fiction, Biography, Christian Living, Relationships/Family, Devotional, Bible Study/Theology, Christian Education, Gift Book, Children’s Book (4-8 years), Children’s Book (8-12 years), and Young Adult (12+ years).
Voting on the awards is open through March 31, 2015. The winners of this award are determined solely by Christian retailers’ and readers’ votes. Winners of the 2015 Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award will be announced on April 22, 2015.
