We were delighted to receive this feedback from Glen Stansfield, now based in Bahrain. 
"I have just released my first novel on Kindle, and I am planning on putting it into print soon. As a direct result of advice given at the (Wigtown Writers') gathering, I decided to publish as an independent. Attending the gathering gave me the confidence to not only continue with my work, but also put it into the marketplace."
Congratualtions, Glen!
