'With regards to my experiences with the Wishing Shelf awards it has been an entirely positive and enjoyable process. Before entering my novel I researched the various awards open to indie authors and the Wishing Shelf stood out as not only having a reputation as a credible and respected indie writing award, but also being at the centre of a supportive and talented network of authors, including the dedicated facebook page.

I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that I had progressed to the finals, and even more surprised (and delighted) to end up as a Silver Medal Winner. The fact that the reviewers were from the age range my novel was aimed at was a particular bonus.

As an indie author it can be easy to let your enthusiasm wane, with so many distractions that can pull you away from writing. This has especially been the case in the current world climate, and the awards came at just the right time to re-ignite my enthusiasm, with a couple more novels now in the pipeline.

Thanks again for all your work with the awards, it's very much appreciated.'

Jethro Punter, author of The Boy Who Dreamt the World


'Thank you for the feedback, and I would love for you to share it on any of the social media and commercial networks you mention in the email.

I also want to mention: I did not realize that the Wishing Shelf had invited teen readers to comment on YA submissions. I think this was a wonderful decision on your part, as youth will have the best ability to respond to literature that is about them and that speaks to them... for all this, however, this is the first contest I have entered to have taken such an approach. I am so glad that you did.'

Connor Coyne, author of Urbantasm, Book One: The Dying City


'Thank you so much for this fabulous feedback. Yes, please do put the content on Goodreads and BookBub. I loved seeing that my readers were young people! Thanks again for your amazing efforts.'

Lisa Braver Moss, author of Shrug


“Once a book is written, it needs to be discovered. The ability to illustrate the bronze medal in my marketing gives VANOPS: THE LOST POWER an edge over the competition. The Wishing Shelf Awards were professionally run and the bonus feedback was helpful, too. Enter your book today!”

Avanti Centrae, author of the international award-winning VanOps thriller series


'As you can imagine, Edward, I am thrilled with my feedback. Please post my feedback on the sites you mentioned. I look forward to next year with the final book in my saga.

You are a phenomenal force with the diligent work you put into this contest. I appreciate and admire you!'

M B Gibson, author of Harps Upon the Willow
