Feathered Quill Book Awards Announcement.  2.1.18


We are excited to announce that the book "The Path of the Wind" has won the Gold/1st Place award in the 2018 Feathered Quill Book Awards Program for the Adult Fiction category!  Congratulations!


We had a HUGE response to our annual awards program, with many excellent books vying for top places.  Your title rose to the top and you should be quite proud.




"I've had the pleasure of reading another title by Misko ("As All My Fathers Were") and when I received "The Path of the Wind" for consideration, I couldn't wait to get started.  When an author leaves an indelible memory recall of a "great read," my initial thought on his/her next read is: "Will this one be just as good or better?"  In the case of "The Path of the Wind," Misko once again has sealed his place among great authors.  His care and forethought toward mapping a storyline is exceptional.  His focus on setting the scene for the next exchange of witty and believable dialogue is superb.  Misko's writing ability and homage for the English language is award-worthy and then some!  I thoroughly enjoyed this writer's essence of how a story should be told! Great read!"
