"Everyone is talking about eBooks," said Dan Poynter, founder of the Global eBook Awards. "eBooks have reached the tipping point and are outselling books on paper in several categories. eBook are not replacing paper books; they are in addition to. The eReading devices such as the Kindle are increasing the amount of book reading."

According to Joseph Dowdy, the Director of Awards, the category with the largest number of entries so far is Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Paranormal. The next largest number of entries are in Historical Literature, Autobiography/Memoirs, and Writing/Publishing Nonfiction. Dowdy observes that Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Paranormal is the hot topic this season. Many people are reading and writing in this area due to the phenomenal success of Amanda Hocking and her eBooks. At the recent San Francisco Writers Conference, this was the most popular genre.

The Awards have 79 categories in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, illustration, and multimedia.

The Global eBook winners will be honored at a star-studded ceremony on August 20 in Santa Barbara, California.


  1. I voted and left comments. May I ask a question? How do you get your book cover on your page? I'm clueless. (As usual.) But then I grew up with manual typewriters. :)

  2. Bev, once you log in click on Posts on the left side of the page, then your book page should come up, then click edit. When your book page comes up in edit form, just click on the Add an Image button next to UPLOAD/INSERT. Then pull your book cover from your own files.

  3. Oh, thank you. Going there now. Appreciate your help. I'm so clueless.
