New books, just in time for Christmas!



I’m one of those people who thinks there’s never a bad time to shop for books, and December is especially great because the stores have so many sales and special deals. Yay! If you’re shopping for the avid reader on your gift list or even for yourself, here are some ideas from authors who are part of American Christian Fiction Writers. More in-depth descriptions of these books can be found on the ACFW Fiction Finder website.
