INSPYs 2014 Reminder + Update

Good afternoon, friends! It’s Friday. Doesn’t that instantly make you smile? We interrupt the regularly scheduled When Calls the Heart blogging (if interested, that will be up tomorrow morning) to bring you a reminder and updates as applies to the INSPYs. First off, thank you all for your patience as regards the push to create awareness of the program on Twitter and to those of you who shared about our program, you rock! Heads up to anyone interested, Monday is the last day for bloggers to apply to be a part of our judging panels. We’re excited by the talent who applied and are happy to accept any additional applicants until March 31st 

Due to some behind-the-scenes snags, we will also tweak our timeline a bit. If you are looking for an earlier notification, instead of notifying judges on April 8th and announcing shortlists on the 15th, the change is going to push it back to notify our judges on April 15th and then share the shortlists on April 30th 

If you’re thinking about judging, this is your last weekend to sign up or if you know someone who has expressed interest, they can apply through March 31st. Thanks for all of your enthusiastic support of this program – it’s a blast to have you as a part of this program, without that support, the INSPYs wouldn’t be what it has become these last four year without that. Thank you.  

Happy Friday!


  1. How cool! I'd like to be able to be an INSPY judge, but I'm not sure if I have the amount of time needed for such a commitment. . . .

    1. I understand your reservations, Hannah. If you're interested and haven't yet, be sure to check the timeline on Judges will only have to read five books but we ask that bloggers consider the time and if they can commit to it. While, we'd be glad to have you participate, believe me, I get the time thing. Don't we wish we had a bit more!? :)

  2. Thanks for letting us know! A little more waiting won't be too awful. :)

    1. Happy to, Rosie! Those silly behind-the-scene snags. Don't they now we have awesome judges to notify!? ;)
