Find your favorite new book in November's releases



It’s time to start thinking about holiday shopping, and what better gift for yourself or another reader in your life than a book fresh off the new-release list? We don’t think there is one. :-) If you agree, here’s a rundown of new releases in several genres from authors who are part of American Christian Fiction Writers
