Fictionwise Announces 2002 eBook Awards
Author of the Year, eBook of the Year, Best Selling, and Highest Rated eBooks

January 8, 2002 – Chatham, NJ -- Fictionwise.com, the leading independent eBook publisher and distributor, announced today its annual awards for the top selling and highest rated eBooks and authors for 2002.

Best selling science fiction author Lois McMaster Bujold is Fictionwise’s 2002 eBook Author of the Year. The award is based on sales and member ratings of eBooks sold at Fictionwise in 2002. Ms. Bujold is one of the top selling authors at Fictionwise and her works maintained an extremely high average rating from Fictionwise members.

Ms. Bujold’s novel, “The Vor Game,” is Fictionwise’s 2002 eBook of the Year, based on total unit sales multiplied by average member rating.

“We want to congratulate our Author of Year, Lois McMaster Bujold,” said Scott Pendergrast, co-publisher at Fictionwise. “Ms. Bujold’s works dominated our best seller lists and our members rated her works at an extremely high level--a remarkable average of 3.71 out of 4. It’s an honor to sell her works at Fictionwise.”

Ms. Bujold said: “I am delighted with this honor from the most important people at Fictionwise, the readers. I was cautious of the eBook format at first, but foremost among its many advantages has certainly been distribution. It's not just a convenience for folks who like to read on the go from their hand-held devices. Through Fictionwise, my work has been able to reach many new readers formerly excluded by geographic barriers and prohibitive shipping costs from discovering my paper books. Fictionwise has helped bring me a truly world-wide audience.”
