Month: April 2014

What’s Happening Wednesday: What’s on YOUR bookshelf?

As I work at a publishing company, it will come as no surprise that my bookshelves are constantly bursting at the seams with Christian fiction.

But even so, every time a new book gets in, our team always hurries over to the new book cube (duly nicknamed “the birthing cube,” as it’s where we get to see many bright-eyed new book babies for the first time!) anytime a new title arrives hot off the presses.

Here are the latest additions to our bookshelves this month:

April Book Shelfie


Saving Amelie by Cathy Gohlke

All Right Here by Carre Gardner

The Midwife by Jolina Petersheim


Old Fashioned by Rene Gutteridge and Rik Swartzwelder

Firewall by DiAnn Mills

Driftwood Tides by Gina Holmes

The Story Keeper by Lisa Wingate

We also recently received some advanced reader copies, known in the industry as ARCs. These ARCs go out to a number of people: authors, agents, reviewers, the media, etc. If you’re interested in finding out how YOU could get advanced reader copies of the latest Christian fiction, stop by the Tyndale Blog Network to apply to be a Tyndale reviewer.

Now, with my bookshelves full, it’s time to get back to reading manuscripts!

To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she’s paid to finally feel like she’s somebody.

To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven. Zeke and his son, Joshua—Abra’s closest friend—watch her grow into an exotic beauty. But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth etched scars deep in her heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking bad boy who lures her to Tinseltown. Hollywood feels like a million miles from Haven, and naive Abra quickly learns what’s expected of an ambitious girl with stars in her eyes. But fame comes at an awful price. She has burned every bridge to get exactly what she thought she wanted. Now, all she wants is a way back home.

In this riveting and highly anticipated tale of temptation, grace, and unconditional love, New York Times bestselling author Francine Rivers delivers big-canvas storytelling at its very best.



Thanks for stopping by the blog. Come back this Friday for more fiction fun!
