Announcing the first annual Inspy Awards!

The innovative award is designed to help readers in their search for the preeminent faith-inspired literature of today. The INSPYs were created to select and showcase books with the highest literary standards that grapple with the Christian faith. To find these works, the INSPYs net is cast wide, accepting nominations of books aimed at the Christian bookstore market as well as those from the general market.

I have been working on a project for the past few months that I am very excited about. As of today, we are officially launching the INSPYs blog, where you will find the complete press release and a list of ways you can get involved, including nominating books and applying to be a judge in one of these genres: Historical Fiction; Amish Fiction; Thriller, Suspense, Crime Fiction; General and Literary Fiction; Romance and Romantic Suspense; Speculative Fiction; Creative nonfiction; and Young Adult Fiction.

Amy from My Friend Amy was the blogger who came up with the idea for the INSPYs – and put together the advisory board, which includes Amy, myself, Hannah from Word Lily, Deborah from Books, Movies, and Chinese Food, and Rel from Relz Reviewz. One of the best parts about being involved with the INSPYs is getting to know this remarkable group of women, who are passionate about their faith, book blogging, and finding deserving faith-driven fiction in both the Christian and secular publishing worlds.

Be sure to check out the INSPYs blog to get all the details, nominate books, sign up to be considered as a judge, and to subscribe to the feed so you don’t miss out on the latest news.
