The Magic Word by Sherrill S. Cannon has been nominated for a Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Award in the Children’s Fiction category. The winners will be announced in August at a banquet in Santa Barbara. The purpose of the awards is to showcase eBooks, and their growing share of the marketplace.
A long time eBook advocate, Dan Poynter is the author of more than 125 books and has been a publisher since 1969. His seminars have been featured on CNN, his books have been pictured in The Wall Street Journal, and his story has been told in US News & World Report. As he says: “To break out of the pack and rise above the noise, your ebook needs to get read. Readers have to read it, love it, and tell someone else. This is “word of mouth.” Global eBook Awards are more than a “sticker:” they come with a built-in publicity machine. To be successful, fiction has to get read. The Global eBook Awards are designed to help you achieve these goals.”
Cannon’s delightful rhyming book tells the story of Elisabeth, who fears she has no friends when no one wants to come to her birthday party. Elisabeth needs to learn The Magic Word:
Elisabeth “never said thank you, excuse me or please.
She made fun of people, she’d argue and tease.
She took what she wanted whenever she could,
Elisabeth’s manners were not very good.”
When she begins to follow her mother’s advice to be more considerate of others, and say “please” as well as “thank you,” Elisabeth is delighted to discover that she now has lots of friends, all wanting to come to her birthday party! This wonderful story will have your children saying “please” buy them the book!
The finalists and winners will be chosen by a panel of judges. However, to leave your comment and rate Sherrill S. Cannon’s book, please go to: http://awardsforebooks.com/book-writing-contest/category/fiction-childrens-picture-books/
