Share on

Three Instant Apostle fiction titles have been shortlisted for the Woman Alive Magazine Readers’ Choice Award at this year’s Christian Resources Together Conference in September. The shortlist consists of 10 titles and our nominated titles are:

The Girl at the end of the Road is Kathryn Hitchins’ striking debut novel. Addressing issues around autism, the protagonist falls in love with an autistic woman and, as a result, is faced with the choice of returning to his superficial life or choosing love.

The key of all Unknown, Kathryn’s second novel, tackles questions around death from both atheistic and faith perspectives. Both these well-received books have unique and intriguing story lines addressing crucial questions of our age.

Soulsight is also a debut novel aimed primarily at young adults. It addresses the current obsession around physical appearance, particularly among teenagers. Its author, Hazel Paine, weaves a gripping story around the concept of ‘Soulsight’, a substance which enables people to see as God sees, beneath the skin to people’s true selves, showing the importance of good character over good looks.

Instant Apostle Senior Publishing Editor, Nicki Copeland, says, ‘Story is a powerful medium, one through which we believe God can speak, and as such Instant  Apostle is committed to publishing high quality fiction for adults, teenagers and children for both the Christian and the general markets. We are delighted that three of the ten shortlisted titles are Instant Apostle books.’
