The Unfinished Gift an Editor's Pick for FIRST for Women magazine

Upon my return from the ACFW conference, I received some incredible news from my publisher. The paperback edition of The Unfinished Gift has been chosen as the "editor's pick" for the Nov 19th issue of FIRST for Women magazine. That's the issue that comes out just before Thanksgiving this year, so this endorsement for the holiday season couldn't have come at a better time.

FIRST is a huge publication, appearing at checkout counters and newsstands all across the country, and has a 1.25 million circulation. It's an amazing opportunity to get my book into the hands of a whole new segment of the population. Not to mention the possibility (hopefully, the likelihood) that those who read the first book will want to go out and buy the sequel, The Homecoming, just released this past June.


  1. Dan, that is fabulous! I'm glad you are getting such a broad attention. It's good for everyone!

    I sat across from you at breakfast one morning at conference, and while I was chatting with a couple of mutual friends,and realized who you are. (Yes, sometimes slow Crystal...I recognize names, not always faces right away.) Anyway, I plan on getting your books soon as historical novels are my favorites.

    Keep writing! So happy for you on your ACFW awards.

  2. Crystal,

    Thanks so much for the kind words. Though we didn't get to chat at the breakfast table, thanks for stopping by and saying hi. Had such a wonderful time at the conference. Hope you enjoy the books.
