The deadline to enter the National Association of Real Estate Editors’ Robert Bruss Book Awards — named in honor of the nationally syndicated Inman News columnist who died in September 2007 — has been extended from April 25 to May 5.

The awards will honor authors who published real estate-related books in 2008 — subject areas can range from building to remodeling, and from real estate investing to mortgage finance to architecture.

NAREE, a nonprofit association founded in 1929, will name gold, silver and bronze winners during its spring conference in June at the Hilton Washington Embassy Row hotel in Washington, D.C.

Applications for the book awards, and entry details, are available at the NAREE site. Entries must be postmarked by May 5.
