It is with great sadness that we announce Dan Poynter passed away on November 1, 2015.

Dan often said: “Whether you use a publisher or publish yourself, the author must do the promotion. Publishers do not promote books. It is up to you.” Dan founded a unique platform for authors to promote their work and we are grateful for the tools for success that he left behind for us to use. The Global Ebook Awards is committed to it’s promotion program for authors and will continue in Dan’s honor. The Global Ebook Awards is a program run by a team of author advocates who will be a part of Dan’s legacy for years to come.
