'By entering The Wishing Shelf Book Awards, my book was read and reviewed by 16 children and adults, with feedback on editing, writing style, content and title/cover. This is the kind of feedback every author needs. Honest and with comments to back up their scores, the children and adults gave me invaluable responses to my book. As well as a lovely red ribbon to display, I also have some powerful reviews and comments to use on my website and social media channels. I would thoroughly recommend entering.'

S Y Palmer, author of May's Moon

'The Wishing Shelf Awards contest and reviews is well done and the communication is great! The price is very reasonable. I definitely plan to make use of the comments when preparing future books!'

I Think I Lost My Little Bug, Grandpa Krogstad

'This was the first award I entered so I wasn't sure about the process, but Edward was very helpful and got my book to his reading group the next day! I now have feedback from my target audience and it's really helpful for when the next books come out. I'm happy that I entered the awards as it has given me comments and feedback that I may not have known about otherwise.'

Jessica Turnbull, author of Elemental Dragons

"The Wishing Shelf Awards are an invaluable way to get your books into the hands of the people who matter - real readers, who might not have come across them otherwise. Then their insightful feedback, in the form of a review, encourages yet more readers to take a look. I'd recommend it to any indie author - I'll certainly be back!"

L R Hay, Writers' Guild award winner; author of JOSEPH'S BOY and JAIRUS'S GIRL

'The Wishing Shelf Awards stand out amidst a plethora of book awards based upon the professionalism with which all details of the contest are managed, as well as the insightful feedback provided to entrants.'

John Leifer, author of 8 Seconds to Midnight
