Appalachian Blessings–Wow, a news release!

PromoI’ve been in marketing and public relations since I graduated college which was, um, 20 years ago. In that time, I have written more than a few news releases. But I don’t think I’ve ever been the subject of a news release.

So check this out!

Debut novel from Bethany House featured in both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal
Miracle in a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin Thomas has received national attention with reviews in two prestigious review publications. Library Journal’s starred review stated, “Once in a while a new author comes along with a work that makes you sit up and take notice. Thomas has crafted a tale of this proportion.” Publishers Weekly’s reviewer concluded, “Thomas’s fiction debut offers sympathetic, wholesome protagonists seeking to live faithful, prayerful lives and engaging supporting characters in subplots that explore the overarching themes of forgiveness, redemption, and the wideness of God’s love.” Sarah Loudin Thomas writes books of faith, hope, and miracles, set in Appalachia, the region where she grew up. Her debut novel, Miracle in a Dry Season, is set in small town West Virginia, 1954, where one newcomer’s special gift with food produces both gratitude and censure. For more information, contact Amy Green (agreen@bethanyhouse.com), or visit Sarah’s website, sarahloudinthomas.com.

Seriously. How cool is that?!?

    Sarah, I can’t imagine anything more absolutely brilliant! Library Journal, no less! Writing from London–wish I had your book with me so I could read it on the plane coming home. So proud of you!
