I'm back from New York, where I attended this event -- featuring books published in 2013. See the photos of nominees who read from their work.
The entire trip was very cool, even though I didn't win anything. Here is the list of winners in each category:

y Manil Suri (W.W. Norton & Company)

edited by Charles "Zan" Christensen (Northwest Press)

For Bisexual Erotic Fiction: The Reunion
by Adriana Kraft (B & B Publishing). [Note: My "bawdy novella" of the 1860s, The Flight of the Black Swan
, was nominated. Obviously I was disappointed that it didn't win, but I have a high regard for Adriana Kraft's work. Must read this one.]
For Bisexual Book Publisher of the Year: Circlet Press and Riverdale Avenue Books were TIED for this, so the two publishers (Cecilia Tan and Lori Perkins) both got awards.
