This Is a FIRST!

How many first time authors do you know who hit the New York Times bestseller list with their very first story? Well, a couple of our authors have done just that. Liz Tolsma and Michelle Ule had novellas included in the 9-in-1 collection titled A Log Cabin Christmas, and this week the book hit the New York Times fiction bestseller list at #34. I'm so thrilled for these authors as well as the other authors in the collection. See the full list of authors and stories below.

Snow Angel by Margaret Brownley
The Christmas Secret by Wanda E. Brunstetter
Christmas Traps and Trimmings by Kelly Eileen Hake
A Star in the Night by Liz Johnson
The Courting Quilt by Jane Kirkpatrick
Under His Wings by Liz Tolsma
The Dogtrot Christmas by Michelle Ule
A Grand County Christmas by Debra Ullrick
                                                            Christmas Service by Erica Vetsch

Congratulations to all the authors of A Log Cabin Christmas!!!

It was such a thrill to be at the ACFW conference when the news came out and to congratulate Erica and Michelle in person at the Awards Ceremony.

Author Jennifer Hudson Taylor said...

Congratulations! From someone who loves renting log cabins in the mountains, sounds like a winner to me!

Rachel Kent said...

Small correction here, Liz Johnson does have three books out with Steeple Hill suspense. :) But it's very exciting anyway!

Becky said...

Sorry, Rachel. I corrected that.

Erica Vetsch said...

SQUEEEE! So very exciting. I loved meeting several of the Log Cabin authors this last weekend and celebrating with them.

Thank you, Becky, for including us in this project!
