What Authors Say



144 Authors' Testimonials



'I would highly recommend the Wishing Shelf Awards to any independent author. As others have said, it's worth entering just for the feedback, which is honest and comprehensive. The best part is getting individual comments from readers. The awards themselves are professionally run, with clear communication of what to expect and when, and the benefits of being a finalist and/or a winner have been amazing. Many thanks to Edward, all the readers, and everyone else involved!'

Alex C. Vick, author of Breaking Magic


'As an author I always consider it a privilege to participate in any book awards program. Sometime the experience is underwhelming and sometimes, as in the case of the Wishing Shelf Book Awards, it is a pure pleasure. From the moment of submission to the wonderfully detailed final feedback email I was impressed with the awards program. I enjoyed the clear communication and great answers to questions. I have to say that my favorite part of the entire experience was the final feedback. So few contests offer this extra piece, but I think it is invaluable. I look forward to a future opportunity to submit another book to the Wishing Shelf Book Awards!'

Rue, author of The Chronicles of Hawthorn


"I entered the Wishing Shelf Book Awards, a UK based award, in order to get some feedback directly from the age appropriate readership. To my surprise I made it through to the finals. I will splash my finalist badge and review all over my website and blog.
I thoroughly recommend this professionally run book award.
Many thanks to The Wishing Shelf Book Awards Team.'

Stephan von Clinkerhoffen, author of Stig's Flight of Encounters


“I’m so glad I entered the Wishing Shelf Book Awards. I was extremely honored to have my young adult novel receive a silver medal in the “Books for Teenagers” category. But I also appreciated receiving feedback from the teen readers who read and judged my book. It’s extremely helpful to me as an author to know what they saw as my story’s strengths and weaknesses. I didn’t expect that! My thanks to all the readers and to the Wishing Shelf Book Awards management team. You run a terrific contest!”

Carmela Martino , author of Playing by Heart


'We feel so fortunate to have discovered the Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards. Having feedback directly from teens and young adults, while writing for their age group, is invaluable! Learning what these young judges think about pacing, character development, plotting, and perhaps most importantly, whether they would read another book in the series, provided guidance, support, and encouragement as we finish up book two in our western steampunk series. Thank you, Edward! Thank you, judges!'

Janet Fogg and Dave Jackson, Misfortune Annie and the Locomotive Reaper
