Welcome to the online home of Audra Jennings, a book publicist and crafter. Here I share about both. I hope you'll find books you'll want to read and crafts you will want to order. I live a rather boring, single life. At times I would like to think I am humorous. The kids I teach in Bible class tend to think so. I also blog about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I don't know why, I just do.

This fall Summerside Press will be
launching the new American Tapestries™ fiction line, delighting romance readers
and history lovers alike. The debut releases in the series, Queen of the Waves by Janice Thompson
and Where the Trail Ends by Melanie
Dobson, will be available in stores on October 1.
American Tapestries™ novel sets a heart-stirring love story against the
backdrop of an epic moment in American history. Whether they fought in her
battles, built her cities or forged paths to new territories, a diverse
tapestry of men and women shaped this great nation into the Land of
Opportunity. Even then, as is true now, the search for romance was a major part
of the American Dream.
hopes to build on the success they have found with the Love Finds You™ series,
which has sold almost one million units during the past four years. American Tapestries™ has the appeal and
ongoing potential of the popular Love Finds You™ line, but it is an epic series
with longer books that have a more premium, literary feel.
“While we were brainstorming ideas for the new series, we
gave some thought to what our readers enjoyed most about the Love Finds You™
series,” explains Rachel Meisel, Summerside’s fiction editorial director. “One
thing our readers all say is how they enjoy learning more about real places in
America. We were inspired by that—readers like to learn something; they enjoy
that element of real-life within the pages of fiction.Instead of actual towns playing a major role in the narrative, these
stories are set during actual events in our nation’s history.”
editorial team has also taken into account reader feedback via sources such as
Facebook when deciding which historical events will be featured in upcoming
releases. Some of the historical events that will be retold by some of the most
beloved authors in Christian fiction include:
Sinking of the Titanic
Forging of the Oregon Trail
Women’s Suffrage Movement
Battle of the Alamo
Completion of the Transcontinental
Signing of the Declaration of
Construction of the Biltmore House
First Flight at Kitty Hawk
Oklahoma Land Rush
American Civil War
Yukon Gold Rush
With two titles to be released each fall (October) and
spring (April), Summerside invites lovers of historical romance not only to fall
in love with this line, but to fall in love with America all over again.
