INSPYs 2019 | In Which We Reveal the Shortlists

May 3, 2019 1 Comment

Hello, friends and readers. Here we go. Our 2019 INSPYs Shortlists are finally here and ready for sharing with the world. Our sincere apologies for the delays. Given our different time zones, and personal commitments, this announcement encountered delays, plus we were engaged in great discussion to put together the best shortlists we could. We do appreciate your patience, understanding and continued support.

So thank you for your patience as we put this together, and to our judges who will be reading all of these where there is a winner at the end of this process (in June), thank you. Below you can see the official INSPYs post. Hope you like our shortlists and if there are reads on here you’ve not read, I hope you discover some new reads. (Tell me which you’re most excited to see on our shortlist!

Announcing the 2019 INSPYs Shortlists…

It’s finally here. Today, we’re ready to announce our 2019 INSPYs shortlists.

We thank you so much for your continued support, especially throughout the changes over these past few years as we strive to create a program that is considerate of the many wonderful novels written in this genre.

Following delays, and all those different time zones, plus juggling our respective schedules, the Inspy Awards Advisory Board is thrilled to (finally) announce the 2019 shortlist contenders. As each year does, another daunting task was placed before us to pick just 3 books in each category from a long list nominated by readers and bloggers around the world. After careful consideration and deliberation, the INSPYs Advisory Board is pleased to announce that the following books have been shortlisted in the 8th annual INSPY Awards.

Congratulations to all of the nominated authors and shortlist contenders! We now turn the job over to our 2019 judges to select a winner in each category. Winners will be announced June 28th.
