The fifth annual Bisexual Book Awards finalists were announced May 12. The juried award is given by the Bi Writers Association.
There were 106 books published in 2016 submitted for consideration: a 45% increase over last year.
“We are thrilled the Bisexual Book Awards is succeeding in its mission to encourage writers and publishers to put out more bi-themed books,” says Sheela Lambert, Director of the Bi Writers Association. “By providing multiple book categories; authors and publishers find that their books can be recognized for the genre they are written in, as well as their bisexual subject matter.”
