Bianca Lakoseljac’s Book Excellence Awards Review

“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 honor! Writing my novel, Stone Woman, has been such an intense and liberating experience, and the Award is validation that hard work is appreciated and most of all, that my readers and 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.”
