FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – PITTSBURGH, PA, September 20, 2013 — The latest book, Windshift, by noted author, speaker, and storyteller, Joyce Faulkner, has captured the Silver Award 2013 for Historical Literature Contemporary (1940-NOW) by Dan Poynter’s Global Ebook Awards Program.
“Few honors for authors are as prestigious as an award from Dan Poynter’s Global Ebook Awards,” said Faulkner. “Receiving this one stands out as truly special for me.”
The Dan Poynter Global eBooks Award recognizes quality in the eBook format including Kindle, ePubs, and iBooks. Windshift is published in Kindle, but the version submitted to the Global eBooks Award was in the new iBook format, which includes video and an extensive glossary to enhance the historical meaning. Dan Poynter is one of the biggies in independent publishing and is a forward thinker in terms of how to market books.
Windshift hearkens back to the years of World War II, when women flew in the Women’s Air Service Pilot Program (WASP). “These women pilots,” said Faulkner, “demonstrated that change begins with a special few who show the dream is possible, but it actually happens when everyday folks do it so easily they forget it was ever a dream.”
Faulkner is the former President of the Military Writers Society of America (www.militarywriters.com). Her other books include the award-winning In the Shadow of Suribachi, Username, and Losing Patience.
