Thank you for sending the feedback on my book, Natalie and the Nazi Soldiers. The feature of receiving feedback from the readers was particularly appealing to me about your contest. This is so valuable!
Yes, please post your blurb/feedback on Goodreads for my book.
Keep up the good work! You created an amazing contest! Thank you!

Annette Gendler, author of Natalie and the Nazi Soldiers


"Edward, my experience with you and The Wishing Shelf Book Awards has been wonderful and empowering. Long after, As Maya Grows in the Natural World is a treasured chapter in my life journey, I will remember you and your organization respectfully and with fondness."

Patricia Ambinder, author of As Maya Grows in the Natural World


'Thank you SO much for sending this to me - my day was MADE reading through the comments - thanks for taking the extra time to include all the helpful tips too. The Wishing Shelf Awards really were the best value for me, of all the awards I entered (and I probably entered more than I should've). Getting to read actual feedback from actual readers is super helpful and encouraging, and the whole process was really wonderful. Thanks for making my first awards experience a really great thing! I appreciate all you and the team have done!'

Devon Dial, author of Never A Mere Mortal


'I so appreciate your readers and the opportunity to be a part of your amazing book awards. I'm also very appreciative of their comments and suggestions. This is truly a wonderful opportunity for authors!'

Colleen Vanderzyden, author of Courageously You: Magical Mind Games to Get Unstuck and Reignite Your Joy


"You guys have been so exceptional for supporting us self-published authors. This has been the best book award I've ever entered. Thank you so much."

Mariam Latifi, author of A to Z of Mini Muslims
