Anna’s Healing Selected as 2016 Christy Awards Finalist
Harvest House Publishers is pleased to announce that popular fiction author Vannetta Chapman’s Anna’s Healing has been nominated for a 2016 Christy Award in the Contemporary Series category.
Anna’s Healing, by Vannetta Chapman tells the story of how Anna Schwartz’s life is changed forever when a tornado strikes. She suffers a spinal cord injury and finds herself learning to live as a paraplegic. But then a miracle happens, and her life is once again turned upside down as the world’s attention is drawn to this young Amish girl who has experienced the unexplainable.
The Christy Awards were started in the spring of 1999 when nearly a dozen Christian publishers confirmed the need for establishing a Christian fiction award to recognize novelists and novels of excellence in several genres of Christian fiction. The 2016 annual Christy Awards for excellence in Christian fiction will be announced via an online event at www.christyawards.com at 4 p.m. (EDT), Mon., June 27, 2016.

Amish, Mystery and Suspense Novels
From the Back Porch
Do you enjoy reading on your back porch? I do! At the end of the day, I want to grab a snack and glass of iced tea, mosey out to the porch, and read in peace and quite for a little while. Of course, it doesn’t always work out that way.
Once a month, I’d like to offer you a special price, and this month that special offer is for my Pebble Creek series. A Promise for Miriam, A Home for Lydia, and A Wedding for Julia introduce the Amish community of Pebble Creek, Wisconsin, and the kind, caring people there. As they face challenges to their community from the English world, they come together to reach out to their non-Amish neighbors while still preserving their cherished Plain ways. The special low price is $10 (plus tax and $2.50 for shipping), and of course I will autograph it for you and include some bookmarks. This is 30% less than the book is currently being offered on Amazon, so I hope you will take advantage of the offer. Choose the book you’d like, fill in the autograph to box, and click BUY NOW. You’ll be taken to a secure Paypal site where you can enter your credit card or debit card number.
