'Being a finalist got the book out there to more readers and helped promote our small press in its early months. Edward was a great communicator who is very transparent about the awards process. Definitely submitting more books in the future!'

'Thank you so very much for the feedback. I really appreciated all of the comments and most definitely would like for you to post the feedback to all of the marketing hubs.
I appreciate and I am grateful for the time and effort that you and the readers have put into the awards. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My story was a difficult one to share but being able to share it as brought me great healing and transformation. My hope is to be able to help others heal from their wounds and to inspire them to tell their personal stories.
Since writing my story, my confidence both as a writer and as a public speaker has greatly improved. Winning the Gold Medal in The Wishing Self Awards was such a great honor for me as it gave me validation that my story needed to be heard.It also provided me with the confidence to continue to write, as it is an ongoing learning experience.
As a result of winning the Gold Medal I have been contacted by several publishers encouraging me to write another book and or republish my current book. My on line saIes increased after the award came out and calls started to come in. I have not taken advantage of those opportunities yet. Unfortunately i have probably not used the award to its utmost capability as I just started a new job that has taken up a lot of my time, but it is never too late to get started. My thoughts are geared more to writing another book and have started the process.
My gratitude and thanks to those who have taken the time to read my book. It is satisfying from reading the comments that the readers understood my journey.
Thanks for all that you do. Who knows with all of this encouragement another book may be on the way.'

Kay Kinsley Adams, author of Blemished but not Broken

"The best awards going around. Outstanding feedback from the judges and some great material you can use for your book promotion even if you weren't lucky enough to win. Value for money, real and transparent - it's the reason I've entered every book I've written in the awards over the past few years and will continue to do so."

Matt Pike, author of Apocalypse: Diary of a Survivor 3

'The Wishing Shelf Award was by far the most prestigious and satisfying of the nine awards won by my debut novel, "A line Intersected." International in scope, the Wishing Shelf Awards is run by writers, for writers, and attracts the best writing currently being published. Receiving an award from the Wishing Shelf is a serious accomplishment for any author.'

David Urban, author of A Line Intersected

'The Wishing Shelf Book Awards has exposed my historical fiction to a new European audience. I am excited that a high percentage of the readers stated they would recommend my book to others. For a reasonable fee, this award boosted my morale, encouraged me to continue as a writer, exposed my work to a new audience, and gave me feedback which will strengthen my writing in the future. I cannot recommend the Wishing Shelf Book Awards any more strongly.'

M. B. Gibson, author of AROON, THE DUNCULLEN SAGA
