The digital revolution isn’t just for youngsters anymore.

Author Lance Johnson and veteran poet and writer of fiction Carolyn Howard-Johnson both now have books that sport Global Ebook Awards. Announced this week, What Foreigners Need To Know About America From A To Z: How to Understand Crazy American Culture, People, Government, Business, Language and More by Lance Johnson won the silver awards in the multi-cultural nonfiction category. Carolyn’s poetry chapbook Deeper Into the Pond: A Celebration of Femininity, coauthored with Magdalena Ball, was a bronze winner in the poetry division.

The Global Ebook Awards both honor and bring attention to the future of book publishing: ebooks. Now in its third year, the Awards are in 72 specific categories. They are open to all publishers large and small so that a winner is the best in its category not just the best of small or regionally-published ebooks but global winners. Most ebooks are also available as printed books. See http://GlobalEbookAwards.com

The Johnsons, married 55 years, share an interest in both writing and acting. Between of them they have done commercials for names like Apple, Time-Life, Johnson & Johnson, and Lenscrafters. Lance has also appeared in plays in Los Angeles and in film and on TV. What Foreigners Need To Know About America was recently given to Fulbright foreign student attendees by a US university. About 300 universities and colleges have the book for their international students. Carolyn is known for her multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers and retailers as well as fiction and poetry.
