'Greetings from Chicago. I've been so looking forward to this feedback and your readers did not disappoint! 4.5-rating--YAY!!!! Wonderful comments and generous and sincere encouragement which I deeply appreciate. Your readers really "got" the story.'

Sheila M. Cronin, author of Best of All Gifts

'This is one of the best award competitions around because you actually hear back from the readers judging your work. And every author likes to hear from readers!'

Sunshine Somerville, author of Alterni

'In my opinion, the Wishing Shelf Book Awards are both prestigious and invaluable for authors. This is a well-organized competition and if the judges recommend a book, then you can be sure it’s a good read. The readers are a sampling of the book’s targeted audience, so their honest, constructive feedback is important as we strive to improve our craft. In addition, the exposure a book receives once it earns a place in the finals helps boost sales. The Wishing Shelf Book Awards are recognized internationally and strive to help writers become amazing storytellers.'

Mitch Reinhardt, author of The Darkwolf Saga

'I am so pleased with my reviews and your extraordinary approach to book reviews and awards. I researched options for awards and my highest desire was to be picked by The Wishing Shelf….and, my intention came to fruition….thank you so much!'

Suzie Daggett, author of The Pink Door

'The awards help as the feedback is so useful. It is wonderful to get feedback for both the kids and the teachers, something that other awards do not provide. This gives reassurance to me as the author that I’m on the right track, and helps as real tangible material to be used in my promotion and advertising.'

Dr Simon Spence, author of Theseus
