Meet The 2019
Canadian Book Club Award Sponsors
2019 Title Sponsor: The Self Publishing Agency
Whether you have an idea for a book and need help starting, a completed manuscript that needs a team of publishing experts to help you edit, design and launch your self-published book, The Self Publishing Agency has you covered.
We’re so happy the have TSPA on board as the 2019 title sponsor for The Canadian Book Club Awards. Together, we share the belief that self-published books deserve to stand tall next to traditionally published books, which is why no matter how your book has been published, you’re eligible to enter into this readers-choice award.

Fiction Sponsor: Evolve Cellars
The wines crafted by Evolve Cellars pair perfectly with good books. At The Canadian Book Club Awards, we want to be part of the evolution of the book publishing industry, pushing the boundaries of traditional literary prizes, just like how Evolve Cellars is moving the BC wine industry forward.
Evolve’s intention is to craft friendly and approachable wines, providing a pure expression of the grapes grown at their estate vineyard and south Okanagan grower partners. Fruit-forward with a bright freshness typical of the area, Evolve Cellar wines are a celebration of the great Okanagan region and how we can evolve together.
So, grab a book and pour yourself (and your book club) a smooth glass of wine! To learn more about Evolve Cellars and where you can find them, click here!
Children’s Sponsor: Moguls Coffee House
Moguls, Whistler original coffee house and a local’s favourite, where residents grab-a-java before work, and tourists visit for their world-famous giant cookies. We love Moguls, not just because a cozy coffee shop with mountains in the background makes for a perfect Instagram shot, or because they’ve got one of the best people-watching-patio in Whistler. We love Moguls for their support of literature and sharing positive stories in the community. As a family-run establishment, Moguls supports family reading and literacy which is why partnering with The Canadian Book Club Awards just made good sense! To take their support of reading even further, Moguls has committed to donate copies of the winning Children’s book to the Whistler Public Library! Even when you’re not in Whistler, you can enjoy the warmth of Moguls by following them on Instagram, here!
Business/Self-Help Sponsor: Business Babes Co
Business Babes Collective is a global platform of businesswomen who focus on education, collaboration and community. When providing empowering resources to support female business owners in their growth and development, Business Babes Collective includes culturally, economically and socially relevant literature recommendations to their community–making them a great fit for The Canadian Book Awards!
Business Babes Collective hosts a number of monthly events and workshops with a mission to inspire, educate and connect. If you find yourself at a Business Babes event, you will often hear panellists sharing tools that have helped them succeed and the books that have helped them grow. These business owners are proof that when we read, we grow – both professionally and personally. Therefore, we couldn’t think of a better organization to represent the 2019 business/self-help category.

Non-Fiction Sponsor: Paper Label
A good book doesn’t need to be put down when you get out of bed, nor should you have to change if you’re wrapped up in what you like! From sleep to street, Paper Label’s clever lounge + sleepwear is just like a book you can’t put down – making them the most comfortable fit for this year’s Non-Fiction category sponsor.
Designed and developed in Deep Cove, North Vancouver, Paper Label is created for women who seek comfort without compromising their personal style while on the move.

Poetry Sponsor: Tempo Craft Gin
Small batch distilled in a copper pot-still, Tempo Renovo Gin is the modern expression of contemporary dry gin. This unique blend of botanicals provides plenty of citrus and hints of vanilla with just enough juniper. Smooth, refreshing and perfectly balanced – Tempo Renovo Gin is made for mixing or enjoying straight on the rocks. See what they’re mixing here.
Finally, a true craft gin that goes at your pace.
We love everything Tempo Craft Gin stands for and invite you to slow down this evening, open a book, and pour yourself a cocktail… at your own pace.
