Grace Awards... expanding the tent pegs of Christian Fiction. (that's a great motto!)
Here's what you need to know for now...
The Grace Awards is reader driven. That means in the first round readers vote for novels in five categories:
Women’s Fiction (serious women’s issues, can have humor and/or suspense elements).
Contemporary Romance/Historical Romance (the primary element is love/marriage, be it now or then).
Suspense/Thriller/Mystery/Romantic Suspense/ Detective Series (crime fiction, there’s probably a body). Why you like the story: (At least 25 words)
Speculative Fiction Title (SciFi, fantasy, horror, etc.).
Action Adventure/Western/Historic Epic Fiction (exploits, quest, a feel of wide open spaces, expansive).
Young Adult (appeals to ages 15 – 21-ish).
Voting will begin on December 31st. Anyone who reads faith-based, inspy, Christian themed novels can vote. Authors can vote…but not for their own novel. Judges and Grace Awards Board members can vote…but not for a novel they’ve written. Anyone who reads Christian fiction can vote…but not until December 31st.
This blog will have detailed instructions for voting. Stay tuned.
