Fiction Section Remains a Mystery

This year our store is doing the Send the Light Christmas catalogue. We’re probably part of a very, very small number of Canadian stores doing this one; we’re also doing the David C. Cook catalogue for a more limited time period. The Send the Light catalogue is 40-pages; prices are in U.S. dollars, so we have the option to run things at par or convert prices, depending on what the dollar is doing.

But here’s the strange part: Out of 40 pages, only 1 page of Christian fiction. Six titles. Period.

Who needs mystery books when we have this mystery on our hands?

    If you are looking for new Christian fiction a book by Katie Swartz “The Vicar’s Wife” is being published 18/19 October. Sue

      I see it listed on Ingram, the large U.S. book distributor. They show about ten titles for Lion Fiction; some have the BISAC category “Christian,” but this one does not. I do see however that the author is, in fact, a vicar’s wife!

      After spending three years as a diehard New Yorker, Katharine Swartz now lives in the Lake District with her husband, an Anglican minister, their five children, and a Golden Retriever. She enjoys such novel things as long country walks and chatting with people in the street, and her children love the freedom of village life–although she often has to ring four or five people to figure out where they’ve gone off to!

      She writes women’s fiction as well as contemporary romance for Mills & Boon Modern under the name Kate Hewitt, and whatever the genre she enjoys delivering a compelling and intensely emotional story.

    In hindsight, I think a big part of the issue here is that Baker Book Group isn’t part of the current Send the Light catalog.
