'Having entered in the the Wishing Shelf Awards for a few years now, it never fails to enthral me, when waiting to see if my work has won a prize, the fact that I know people read it, Whether I win or not, is beside the point, its the learning and the feedback that is really good to push you forwards. You also get to meet many new readers along the way and always get good tips on new books to read as well. I would highly recommend the wishing shelf awards. It's the taking part and learning more about how you write, and the cherry on the cake is getting an award.'

Julie Hodgson, author of The Gift


'I am so pleased I discovered the Wishing Shelf Book Awards and delighted that my debut novel, The Spanish Indecision, was a finalist. The feedback was invaluable and I was surprised by the wonderful detail of information we receive back. It is an excellently organised and entirely transparent award which has introduced me to some fab new authors and increased the exposure of my book to a fantastic new audience. Thank you to the team at The Wishing Shelf Book Awards.'

Sarah-Jane Fraser, author of The Spanish Indecision


'Being a finalist got the book out there to more readers and helped promote our small press in its early months. Edward was a great communicator who is very transparent about the awards process. Definitely submitting more books in the future!'

'Thank you so very much for the feedback. I really appreciated all of the comments and most definitely would like for you to post the feedback to all of the marketing hubs.
I appreciate and I am grateful for the time and effort that you and the readers have put into the awards. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My story was a difficult one to share but being able to share it as brought me great healing and transformation. My hope is to be able to help others heal from their wounds and to inspire them to tell their personal stories.
Since writing my story, my confidence both as a writer and as a public speaker has greatly improved. Winning the Gold Medal in The Wishing Self Awards was such a great honor for me as it gave me validation that my story needed to be heard.It also provided me with the confidence to continue to write, as it is an ongoing learning experience.
As a result of winning the Gold Medal I have been contacted by several publishers encouraging me to write another book and or republish my current book. My on line saIes increased after the award came out and calls started to come in. I have not taken advantage of those opportunities yet. Unfortunately i have probably not used the award to its utmost capability as I just started a new job that has taken up a lot of my time, but it is never too late to get started. My thoughts are geared more to writing another book and have started the process.
My gratitude and thanks to those who have taken the time to read my book. It is satisfying from reading the comments that the readers understood my journey.
Thanks for all that you do. Who knows with all of this encouragement another book may be on the way.'

Kay Kinsley Adams, author of Blemished but not Broken


"The best awards going around. Outstanding feedback from the judges and some great material you can use for your book promotion even if you weren't lucky enough to win. Value for money, real and transparent - it's the reason I've entered every book I've written in the awards over the past few years and will continue to do so."

Matt Pike, author of Apocalypse: Diary of a Survivor 3
