Welcome To Our New Home!

Welcome to the new home of TopShelf Magazine and the acclaimed, four-years running, TopShelf Book Awards.

We are rededicated to discovering the best this literary world has to offer and showcasing these award-winning authors and books to our growing list of booksellers, libraries, and millions of readers across North America and the world.

TopShelf Magazine has received critical acclaim from some of the biggest names in the industry and our TopShelf Book Awards have been judged by many of those very same folks, as well as members of the world's largest literary organizations, 'big-five' publishers, renowned publicists, and countless other industry professionals.


What's New At TopShelf?

We now exclusively feature award-winning and bestselling authors and books in TopShelf Magazine.  No exceptions.

No longer can any author simply pay to be featured in our magazine. The only way to be advertised, featured, interviewed, or reviewed is to enter one of our awards and win (or at minimum be named a finalist) or have a 'big-five' publisher (Penguin/Random House, Hachette Book Group, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan) or affiliated imprint or publicist submit your book for review.

TopShelf Magazine is 100% focused on discovering and showcasing only the very best authors and books in the world.
