ACW Book Party

As this is the blog for the Association of Christian Writers we have produced a lot of books between us. As Christmas is coming several blogs will be dedicated to the books which members have written. This should help with the book buying this Christmas. There is something for everyone in here. To make it easier I have broken them down into categories. The photograph above is just a few of those I already have at home.

  1. Great idea, Wendy - thank you.

  2. Thank you so much. As 'Refuge' is a picture book I wonder if it could be listed with children's? Having said that was told yesterday a pensioners' prayer group used it as a meditation!

    1. Anne, I am sorry it is in the wrong category. I will change to make it clear which category it is in but can't change to add to the children's category. When you start moving images in a blog like this it causes havoc.

  3. Wonderful eclectic list. Books are a great idea for Christmas gifts if you know the reading tastes of your gift recipient. And it feels great when the person for whom you've chosen a book lights up with delight that you so well understand their taste. Of course it can work the other way ... but it's worth the risk, and may introduce someone to a new genre which could prove fruitful for all!

  4. Thanks so much - a really great idea, especially at this time of year!
    The link next to my novel, Dear Bob, doesn't work.
    If there's any chance you could edit it so it uses this link, that would be awesome!
