Afternoon, readers and fellow book nerds. Today marks an important day in our INSPYs 2016 timeline. Why’s this, you ask? Well, we’re thrilled to introduce you to our INSPYs 2016 judging panels and we invite you to welcome them along with us.

Before I introduce you to them, I’d just like to take a moment to give those of you who share about the INSPYs, tweet or give this program support. We are so grateful to you. It’s because of awesome bloggers like you that this program gets such a great boast. To those of you who applied to be a judge, thank you! We look for your vital participation each year and are most grateful you’re willing to return or step forward to join our program for the duration of the judging period. Thanks for being willing to give your time.

Our panels are again a wonderful blend of veteran talent and new faces. As with every year, we’re so excited to be working with you all and cannot wait to a.) announce those shortlists (edging oh-so-close), and b.) turn the task of picking that winning novel over to you.

Without further ado, let’s meet and welcome our 2016 judges.

      A pleasure, Becky; thank you for applying to be a judge, and for taking part in our program. :)

  • Tressa S April 22, 2016 at 9:21 PM

    Like everyone else, I'm thrilled! Historical Romance is one of my favorites (it was so hard to choose when I applied) but so are so many other genres. I'm really looking forward to seeing what ends up being on the final list all around!

      As are we, Tressa; only a few more days before those 2016 shortlists go live and then (yay!), we get to turn the decision making over to you. Glad you applied again, and I'm glad you're excited about a new category. That's always fun. :)

    I haven't quit grinning since I found out I made the panel! :-D Honored. Excited. Ready to read!! :-D
