Sugar Time nominated for Global Ebook Award

For Immediate Release . . .

Joy V. Smith’s collection of Sugar Sweet’s time travel stories has been nominated for a Global Ebook Award.
Sugar Sweet’s Uncle Max has fallen ill, and he asks her to investigate the apparent disappearance of his two colleagues and to make sure their time machine is secure.  As she approaches the old mansion housing the laboratory, she is joined by two police offices.  Well, she can probably deal with them…
Inside things get more complicated… Sugar Time collects Joy V. Smith’s Sugar Sweet stories into one volume.
Joy V. Smith has been writing stories since she was a kid and made her own little books.  Her favorite genre is science fiction, and her SF books include Strike Three, a post-apocalyptic novel; Hidebound; Pretty Pink Planet; Hot Yellow Planet; and a reprint collection, The Doorway and Other Stories.  She lives in Florida with Blizzard the Snow Princess and Bryn the Flying Corgi.
The Global Ebook Awards honor and bring attention to the future of book publishing: Ebooks. Now in its sixth 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. Most ebooks are also available as printed books as well.
