T. A. Barron
From T.A. Barron

"The Nautilus Book Awards represent the highest achievement of the writer’s craft. Nothing less. It’s all about envisioning a better, more peaceful, more caring world — both for us and for our fellow creatures and Mother Earth."
From Zoe Mackey
“The Nautilus Awards fit perfectly with BK’s mission to create a world that works for all. Like the Nautilus Awards, it is also our goal to produce better books for a better world.”
From Sara Sgarlat
“I recommend the Nautilus Book Awards to all of my literary clients because it is prestigious, well known, and adds credibility and stature to every book with which it is associated.”
From Tim Schaffner
Publisher, Schaffner Press
“Thank you, Nautilus Book Awards, for your support, and for upholding the belief that books can still make a difference in our world!”

“Winning the prestigious Nautilus Award dramatically accelerated the success of my self-published book. It helped me procure a large publisher—without a literary agent! I love Marilyn McGuire [founder of Nautilus Awards] and her dedicated staff. They are extremely knowledgeable, reputable, and passionate about helping you succeed."
From Patricia Kokinos
Silver Winner – Angel Park
"I want to thank you and the Nautilus Book Awards for having the vision to encourage new ideas, new patterns of thinking, and opening literary avenues to making much-needed changes in our institutions and in our world. I am delighted to be part of this new wave of change that is sweeping the globe."
