There are times when even the best laid plans simply do not come together.
The Advisory Board has had a few setbacks in obtaining the nominated books. With the longer time frame needed to collect the titles we have had to push back all of the dates. Our Advisory Board needs ample time to read and carefully consider each of the 147 nominated books.
As a result, the Board will be announcing the Shortlist Judges on April 15th with the actual short lists announced on April 30th.
If you have applied to be a shortlist judge be expecting an email from a member of the Advisory Board by the 15th. And if you are anxiously awaiting to see which books have made the cut to the short lists then be sure to check back here on April 30th!
We are thrilled with the caliber of nominations ~ trust me, narrowing down to 5 books in each category is difficult this year! You guys have done a fabulous job nominating quality faith-in-fiction!
