“Book Excellence Awards has played a major role in the sales of the book that won a finalist spot. My novel, The Deer Effect, has seen increased sales ever since winning. I’m thrilled about the award and the sales because of placing in this competition.”

Book Excellence Award Finalist for The Deer Effect

“The entire process of entering my book for a Book Excellence Award was easy. Having received an award as a finalist for my book ASSATA SHAKUR: A 20TH CENTURY ESCAPED SLAVE, it has brought increased traffic to my website and to my blog. In addition, several film producers have expressed interest in the possibility of an option for a major film. Needless to say, I am very excited. Naturally, a book has to be interesting to draw attention and sales. The Book Excellence Awards help to place a book on a level where it receives that attention.”

“I’ve been wanting to see my books in Barnes and Noble ever since I started writing, but it wasn’t until I won a Book Excellence Award did I have an opportunity. Now they’ve asked me back to sign and are featuring Cassandra’s Castle.”

D.L. Gardner

Book Excellence Award Finalist, Cassandra's Castle

“Winning the Book Excellence Award 2017 for Fiction is one of the most gratifying moments of my writing career. It means that I am being accepted – being recognized as a Canadian author, as a novelist, and a writer of fiction! The fact that the Award is global, is a huge honour! Writing my novel, Stone Woman, has been such an intense and liberating experience, and the Award is a validation that hard work is appreciated and most of all, that my readers are enjoying my novel. It has also led to numerous speaking engagements, invitations to lead creative writing workshops and give author talks. And it has certainly increased the book sales. In terms of my future works, it has encouraged me to trust my inner voice and continue to write the type of fiction I enjoy reading.”
