What the authors say

The Whistler Independent Book Awards provide independently published authors with a unique opportunity to have their work recognized through a juried process.

Every book submitted receives a valuable written evaluation by the selection committee. Authors who received the thorough assessment of their submitted books or manuscripts found the feedback informative and constructive.

Thanks so much for the feedback. I’ve gone to writing seminars, taken classes, have belonged numerous writers groups since the 1980s and this is the best feedback I’ve had. S.G.

This is wonderful! Thank you! The judges were right on with their comments.Some of the things they pointed out I have been contemplating of changing in future printings. D.E.

I want to say thank you to your team for the very helpful feedback. It confirmed what I feel myself needs changing. It’s an art to be critical without being hurtful. J.L.
