Cover Reveal – Coming late 2017 from Revell

Revell late 2017

For some odd reason, all the updates I did to this post last night which were live and well when I went to bed, disappeared overnight! Here I am trying again!

This is Revell’s late 2017 lineup and the covers that catch my eye are Bethany Turner’s and debut author, Joanne Davidson Politano’s. While you may be tired of me saying this, I just love it when publishers in the CBA try something different than the standard Christian covers we are so used to seeing.

As a reviewer and blogger, they are marvelous to work with, never requiring a positive review and are always gracious when I’ve posted about a book I didn’t like.

As I share the last of their 2017 releases, I really appreciate the genres they cover. Amish,

The Dog Who Was There

Thomas Nelson



“Character Spotlight….”

My main character is a dog named Barley. Smallish, off-white, the same color as the grain for which he was named and the bits and pieces of which covered him when he was found in a sack on a riverbank after a cruel farmer tried to drown him as a pup.
