The Voila Success Award was established to showcase self-help, motivational and inspirational books that change lives, Our awards process is unique and well respected because, once we have created a shortlist of entries, we assemble a jury of volunteer authors, literary agents and coaches to make the final judgment on the books. It is these volunteers who select the first, second and third place winners based on their experience with readers.

Of course, their decisions also take into consideration editorial excellence, professional production, originality of the narrative, author credentials relative to the subject matter, and the value the title adds to its genre.


First, second and third place winners will recieve an engraved trophy and a certificate.  The first place winner will also have the first chapter of their book syndicated in The Sussex Newspaper and in Voila Success.
