All our readers have the opportunity to vote for the Book of the Year through an online survey on our website https://www.itgovernance.co.uk/author-of-the-year-2010-survey.aspx. The deadline for votes will be 31st March 2011.
We are proud to announce that this will be the first award of its kind at ITGP. All current and forthcoming titles published by us before the end of February 2011 will be eligible for the award. The aim of the award is to bring increased recognition to the author who has gone the extra mile to promote their book within its market. The winner will be the book that, in the 12 months to 28 February 2011, and, as judged by our editorial board, achieves the best combination of unit sales volume through all available channels and number of reader recommendations.
The award will be announced (and presented if possible) on the ITGP stand at the London Book Fair on 11th April. There will also be a prize for the author who comes close second.
