2013 Small Business Book Awards

Two big awards for Small Town Rules

1. Named one of the Best Small Business Books Published in 2012 by the National Federation of Independent Business.

2. Named a Winner in the 2013 Small Business Book Awards:

Cleveland, OH, April 2, 2013 – Small Town Rules has been named a Winner in the 2013 Small Business Book Awards in the category of Economics.

The Small Business Book Awards celebrate the best business books that appeal to entrepreneurs, small business owners, CEOs, managers and their employees. The Awards also recognize key resources supporting business book authors and the publishing industry.

The Small Business Book Awards are more than just an honor — they include a prestigious online event in which readers, fans, book lovers and the small business community can show their support for their favorites.

Says Anita Campbell, whose company Small Business Trends founded and produced the Awards, “For many entrepreneur-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. Likewise, the companies and professionals who support authors are dedicated to their craft and to those they serve. The winners deserve this recognition.”

“The Small Business Book Awards are a way to acknowledge the books that small business owners and entrepreneurs appreciated over the past year,” said Ivana Taylor, Book Editor at Small Business Trends, which produces the Awards.

The Small Business Book Awards for 2013 are presented with generous support byNamecheap.com. “We are proud and honored to support the small business community and the Small Business Book Awards. Small business is the backbone of our economy and entrepreneurs the driving force. At Namecheap, we’ve always been a small business focused company and anything we can do to further and promote small business and the spirit of entrepreneurship is something we love being involved with,” adds Namecheap CEO Richard Kirkendall.
