Kingston, Jamaica: HELPDESKJA.COM, the leading provider of virtual support services to authors and coaches in writing, publishing, and marketing, has announced that they have received an award in the 2013 Small Business Book Awards, Resources category. The award was presented to helpdeskja.com by Small Business Trends, located in Cleveland, Ohio, an award-winning online publication, which along with its sister sites, serves more than five million small business owners, stakeholders and entrepreneurs annually. Small Business Trends, for the past five years, has published weekend reviews of small business books, amassing hundreds of independent reviews.
The 2013 Small Business Book Awards are now in their fifth year. More than just an honour, the awards are a unique social online event that enables the small business community to nominate, show their support for, and vote on their favorite business books. The awards also recognise key resources supporting business book authors and the publishing industry. The awards combine recognition for a job well done, honours and prestige - along with providing a high-profile opportunity for authors to engage with fans, network through social media, and increase publicity.
"This year, we've expanded the book categories to 10. We've also added a non-book category for technology and other support resources that help authors get their books into readers' hands. This year, we specifically welcome electronic books, too. Business books today don't always fit neatly into the mold of traditionally published print books. Annual sales of electronic books now exceed $1 billion and continue to grow, according to BookStats," noted Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends and founder of the awards.

First launched in 2011, helpdeskja.com has significantly contributed to improving and educating the way the publishing industry, in particular, the self-publishing industry has evolved in doing business and catering to its clientele.

It stands to reason that I have no choice but to keep pace with industry trends in order to continue delivering quality service to my clients," said Corine La Font, CEO, helpdeskja.com
