I asked Ms. Linda Glaz of Hartline Literary Agency, (one of the pitch opportunity agents!!) to give us her thoughts. Here's what she said:
Inspirational is a story that doesn't necessarily need a spiritual "wake up call" but does have a spiritual thread throughout the book.
Sometimes it's no more than a character's life leaning on God in a very low key manner.
There's generally no profanity, no graphic sexuality.
No drinking in a main character unless that character undergoes a real change during the story.
But it shouldn't be preachy and judgmental.
