A.S Chung’s LGBT children’s picture book about marriage equality has won Silver in the annual Dan Poynter’s Global Ebook Award for 2016! Wishful Wedding, although a children’s book, was entered into the Fiction – Gay/Lesbian/LGBT category. Normally reserved for adult fiction, Chung wanted to be recognised in a category true to the message of the book.
Still a prevalent topic in Australia, marriage equality still continues to elude the Australian LGBT community. This accolade only further highlights the topic and Chung is beyond pleased!
More about Dan Poynter’s Global Ebook Award:
Dan Poynter believed in ebooks. He spoke about them since the early 90s. He sold them from his website since 1996. Dan knew ebooks better than anyone in the publishing business. He was an evangelist for ebooks, an ombudsman for ebook authors, an advocate for ebook publishing, and the godfather to thousands of successfully-published electronic books. Dan Poynter was the author of more than 130 books, has been a publisher since 1969 and was a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP).
His seminars were featured on CNN, his books have been pictured in The Wall Street Journal, and his story has been told in The New York Times.
The media came to Dan because he was the leading authority on ebook publishing. Often referred to as The Book Futurist (and ebooks are the future), he was the most-often quoted authority on book publishing today.
Pigeonhole Books is ever more grateful for the likes of Dan Poynter, who has created significant awareness in ebooks. Thank you for this wonderful win!
