Just received a copy of Baker Publishing's Spring 2011 New Releases catalog, which is sent to retailers all over the country. I knew my third novel, The Deepest Waters, would be in there, since it releases in April. But I was elated to find they featured it across two whole pages!
The book cover takes up much of the left page (it really is my favorite of the 3 books so far). They picked an exciting section of the book, just after the shipwreck, as an excerpt that runs beside the cover along the left side. On the right page, are all kinds of highlights and bullet points about the book.
You'd think I'd be used to this kind of thing by now. But I still can't believe God has opened this door for me, and given me such a wonderful publisher (Revell), willing to spend so much money to design such great covers and promote my books this way.
