"With thousands of new books published every day, awards are more important than ever, but not all awards are equally valuable. The Feathered Quill Awards stand out for their professionalism and high standards..."
"It is an honor for me to be able to add the Feathered Quill Bronze Seal to Penned Without Ink: Trusting God to Write Your Story. All along the way, from submitting my book until receiving my lovely certificate and seals, I have been grateful for the positive communication and guidance..."
