Sent to email subscribers January 28:

Spotlight: WATERFALL by Lisa T. Bergren
"Waterfall will whisk you away to the world of medieval Italy and have you wishing for a dashing young prince of your own. A captivating love story, this adventure of seventeen-year-old Gabi will have you eagerly flipping pages and longing for more."--Shannon Primicerio, author of the TrueLife Bible Study Series
Based on the novel by Karen Kingsbury, Like Dandelion Dust is a drama about a little boy and the two families who want to raise him. Now a judge's decision could tear him away from the only home he has ever known. DVD includes interviews, deleted scenes and more.
Supernatural thriller drawn from real life
James L. Rubart's Book of Days was born from his father's struggle with Alzheimer's. "I was watching my dad lose his memories," Rubart says. "And I wondered, what happens to those memories?" He drew peace from Psalm 139:16 -- which led to the idea for the novel.
Lorena McCourtney's senior citizen limo driver (and amateur sleuth) Andi McConnell is back for another cozy mystery--and it's an e-book exclusive. Andi finds trouble while transporting a wedding party in her limousine. Will Andi wind up with more bullet holes in her limo--or in her?
Q&A: Max Elliot Anderson
Read our interview with children's writer Max Elliot Anderson, author of Barney and the Runaway. "I'd like readers to come away with a better understanding of character, honor, right and wrong, peer pressure, and the power that God has to help them with all of these trials."
