Debut Authors Make Bestseller List

The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) has recently released their Christian Fiction Bestellers through July 2011. You'll find the usual names there, Karen Kingsbury, Beverly Lewis, Francine Rivers, Ted Dekker, etc, but what's exciting is finding three 2011 debut authors on the Top 20 list.

Congratulations to Ruth Reid (The Promise of an Angel), Joan Wolf (Reluctant Queen), and Catherine Richmond (Spring for Susannah). Your achievement is encouraging to everyone hoping to break in and succeed in this tough publishing business.


  1. How neat is that?! Sorry for my absence but blogger has robbed me of my voice! Even on my own blog! LOL. Discovered I needed to upgrade my google browser thingy and voila here I am again!!!

    I have Spring for Susannah on my two be bought list. I'll have to add the other two as well.

  2. I love the hope this gives all authors out there. New writers CAN break into the market. Isn't it great to have so many new voices to choose from?

    So glad you figured out the browser issue, Kav. I love computers & blogging, but sometimes ...

  3. Thank you, Brenda! I'm so excited, I don't know what to do with myself!

  4. Cathy, I can imagine what a thrill this must be for you. Congratulations!
