Some stories are a journey in the making. Several years ago as I was working on proposals for novella collections with friends, I had an idea. I wanted to put together the Dream Team of WWII authors for a Christmas novella collection.
After many emails, fun phone calls, and getting to introduce Sarah Sundin and Tricia Goyer to my current hometown, in September Where Treetops Glisten will release. We are so excited about this book! You’ll hear and read more about it in the coming months, but we couldn’t wait any longer to show you this cover. Isn’t it gorgeous?
And it captures the feel of the novellas. Set in Lafayette, Indiana, during World War II, the stories follow siblings through the hard days of the war. All the novellas are set around Christmas and all have a Christmas carol as the title. Mine is White Christmas. Every time I’d sit down to write, I’d imagine Bing Crosby crooning the classic song.
So stay tuned. We’ve got fun things planned as we get closer to the release date and Christmas.
A World War II Christmas novella collection coming from WaterBrook Multnomah, October 2014.
