Saturday’s star-studded cast included keynoter actor/author Marilu Henner and Jim Cox of The Midwest Book Review. The Master of Ceremonies was radio-personality Bill Frank. This year’s Global eBook Awards ceremony was simulcast worldwide.
Global eBook excitement shared
Authors, family and friends packed the historic dining hall and shared the excitement as awards were announced both live and on the Internet. It was an opportunity to meet writers from all genres. I particularly enjoyed a serendipitous meeting with an amazing lady who also shared an English heritage. I’m grateful to Dan Poynter and his team for organizing such a splendid contest, the results of which are of great value to authors and readers worldwide.
True Miracles with Genealogy Volume Two won the Genealogy/Heritage/Ancestry Non-Fiction category. Volume One was a Finalist in 2011. Will Volume Three be written in time for next year’s awards and voted a 2013 Global eBook Award winner? Send me your stories and let’s see what happens.

This is the last contest for a while as we get into the final stages of moving house. I may find time for a post now and again, but can’t promise much until early autumn. Meanwhile, I hope you will check the sidebars for anything you may have missed reading during the past year.
Have a great summer, everyone. Happy hunting!
