'The best part of The Wishing Shelf Awards is hearing directly from my intended audience. Their insight is invaluable.'

Melissa Haag, author of Fury Frayed

'Thank you SO much for the opportunity to be a part of your wonderful competition! I wish there were more people out there providing budding writers with an honest appraisal of their work and a chance to be recognized.'

E B Mann, author of Karina

'Participating in The Wishing Shelf Awards was an incredible experience! Getting the stars, stats, catchy quote, and readers' comments were definitely worthwhile. My book, Going Green, is a YA Sci-Fi Dystopian, and I received well thought out, positive comments from several teens, both male and female, from 14 to 17 years old, that I'm excited to post. No doubt about it, I'll continue to enter each of my novels when they are released. Thanks again, Wishing Shelf!'

Heather S. Ransom, author of Going Green

'I am very happy with my experience with the Wishing Shelf Awards. Edward kept in constant contact with all the entrants in regards to the progress of the contest, judging, and finalist/winner announcements, which I have found to be a rarity in literary contests. The feedback I received from the readership was extremely valuable, especially since it came from the intended audience for the book!'

Molly Lazer, Owl Eyes

I just got the feedback from the Young Adult readers of the Wishing Shelf Awards of my book Firstworld (Broomriders in Space #1).
I am most pleased ending up as a Finalist and with the 5 stars the readers awarded me.
But most of all, I am happy with their often insightful comments.
Where else do you get a chance to find out what your target public’s opinion is of your book?
So a great many thanks to the Wishing Shelf Awards and its Readers!'

Firstworld, Paul E. Horsman
