'I so really appreciate the feedback! It's incredibly valuable to read the reactions, particularly those from the target audience.
I would love it if you would post the Readers' Comments, Catchy Quote, Stats and Star Rating on Amazon.co.uk, Goodreads.com and Bookbub.com. Thank you so much.
You're doing a fabulous job on behalf of fledgling writers like myself. Keep up the awesome work!'

David Winship, author of The Moon Pigeon


'Thank you for the feedback and comments. It's great to know how my book was received. Since it was my first one to be published, being in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards as a finalist has boosted my confidence about writing and promoting my work. It was a great experience. Thank you for your support.'

Lynda Jolen, author of Professor Parro and the Liars and Thieves


'The Wishing Shelf Book Awards have been an invaluable step in my self-publishing endeavor. As a middle-grade author, having children in UK schools read and judge my book is an ideal way to determine whether I am on the right track with my writing and presentation, not to mention how helpful this is in marketing my book. I will be using my award and the feedback from the readers in my efforts to get involved in readings and talks at schools, as well as in my online marketing efforts to promote my book on my website and in Amazon and other bookseller listings.
Thank you again for organizing such a wonderful award.'

A M Robin, author of Hidden Scales


'I entered the Wishing Shelf Book Awards with two of my children's books and was delighted to win gold in the age 9-12 category. It means so much to have feedback from children in the age group that I write for and the whole process has given my confidence a big boost. The awards are exceptionally well-run and Edward keeps all entrants informed throughout the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending the awards to other authors.'

Jemma Hatt, author of The Adventurers and The Cursed Castle


'Entering The Wishing Shelf Awards is a very rewarding experience. Unlike other rewards, after entering, the only thing an author can do is wait for the result which will come months later. Edward Trayer, the founder and organizer of this award, informs you every step along the way. He creates this wonderful community of authors on Facebook and we discuss matters related to writing and cheered for each other. I’m very glad that my book won a gold medal. I was overjoyed when I read that 16 out of 17 readers would like to read my next book. I feel so encouraged. Writing isn’t a lonely uphill battle anymore. Thank you, Edward and all the readers/judges!'

Anna Wang, author of Inconvenient Memories
