2022–23 TopShelf Book Awards is NOW OPEN!

The winners and finalists for the 2021-22 season of the TopShelf Book Awards will be announced in the 2021 Holiday Issue of TopShelf Magazine this December.

Also, look for our quarterly "TopShelf Cover Awards" and "TopShelf Synopsis Awards" starting very soon!

Our magazine and mission remains focused on discovering the very best that this industry has to offer. Now, we're taking this a step further by making TopShelf Magazine exclusively for showcasing award-winning and bestselling authors and books. No longer can just anyone pay to be in the magazine. TopShelf Magazine is strictly, well, top-shelf.

We are excited about this new format and we know definitively that bookseller, libraries, and readers are as well.
