Year Seven! INSPYs 2017 Nominations are Now Open


Morning readers and friends. With Christmas past and the New Year upon us, it's time for another year of the INSPY Awards. 

There were some changes this year, so be sure and check those out changes on our website. As always, thank you so much for your support of this program. Know that we are grateful. Until then, you can read our official "nominations are open" article down below!


Hello, INSPY readers. The advisory board is excited to open year seven of the INSPY Awards, a program for the bloggers’ “best in fiction” award is welcoming a new year and opening the nominations for 2017.

The Inspys were created to select and showcase books with the highest literary standards that grapple with the Christian faith and were designed to help readers in their search for the preeminent faith-inspired literature of today.  This program is organized and judged by book bloggers who have considerable experience and knowledge of books published for both the CBA, general and INDIE markets.

If you haven’t nominated a book in the past year, please not, we’ve made a significant change to our nomination process. For you, the nominator, the rules remain the same, only difference you’ll note is the lack of a publicized long list. This is because the advisory board will be collecting our long list from the top 15 nominated novels in each category. So, even if you know someone else has nominated your favorite read of 2016 or you’re certain it’s already been nominated, go ahead and add your voice because that nomination could be the 15th vote that gets the book into the top fifteen.

Once the task of the top 15 is calculated and complete, we will publicize our long list, which will be then narrowed down to five books and from there, the same judging process will apply. For more information on the changes, please refer to our announcement post.
Please read through our Nominating Refresher post, and the nomination rules before nominating.

The dates of eligibility include books published in print between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. If a print book was released as an ebook prior to 2016, it is ineligible.

Books may be nominated in any of the following categories:
Debut Novel
General Fiction
Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Historical Romance
Speculative Fiction
Mystery & Thriller
Literature for Young Adults

For more detailed description of categories please see the Revised Nomination Categories. If you’d like to read more about the nominating process, read our blog post with some tips on nominating the right books in their best categories. Pull out those lists and let’s begin!

The deadline to nominate a book is January 16. Winners of the seventh annual INSPY awards will be announced June 28, 2017.

To stay up to date with all things INSPYs follow along with us on Twitter | Facebook | Google+ | Goodreads Or email us with any questions: inspyawards@gmail.com

We look forward to your nominations. Besides nominating the best in faith-driven literature, another way to help today is to spread the word — blog about the INSPYs, tell your friends.

Go forth and NOMINATE NOW!
