“Thank you, IBA, for a book awards program that is recognized worldwide. Upon winning multiple IBA awards, I received incredible Internet presence and global article postings. My book is receiving support from people in many countries. Thank you, IBA Awards Committee, for your courage and integrity in recognizing books that expose the truth to make a difference.” —Randall Dale Chipkar, Author
“I was deeply honored that my book, The Great Pain Deception, was a Finalist in 2 categories for the International Book Awards. This award meant more to me because there were no politics involved or constant sales pitches asking for "extra dues." They were consummate professionals throughout the process. The International Book Awards gives the smallest publishers the same chance as the big publishing houses. They proved this to me when I saw my book ahead of some of the largest publishing houses. The quality of work and the message conveyed is what they look for. Who it comes from doesn't matter, and to me, that makes this award more of an honor to receive. Thank you!” —Steven Ozanich, Author
“The worldwide recognition from your awards program has rapidly increased our book marketing presence. We are receiving requests from book reviewers and inquiries from both print and online media.” —J. R. Maxon
“Winning the ‘Self Help Book of the Year’ from your company has really made a big difference.” —Steve Olsher
“I did a book signing at the Book Expo of America today. A lot of people approached me because they saw the sticker from the International Book Awards. This definitely picked me up some recognition so thank you much!” —Mike Saxton
“This honor really helps with my book marketing. Thanks so much for your hard work and professionalism!” —Mary Hollowell
