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.

You can read the entire list of finalists here. I’m so thrilled to be included in this group of writers, and I’m especially grateful to my publisher for encouraging me to write fiction from my heart. My stories center around authentic people with real trials and triumphs who fall on their faith in good times and bad. It’s what I call fiction full of grace.

Howdy! Don’t we all love a 3 day weekend? Well, some of us are working (yikes, I’m behind). If you’re working too, fist bump me. Today I wanted to talk to you about Memorial Day. You know we’re all happy about that extra day of rest, but then it’s a solemn day too.
So how about it? Do you have some special items that remind you of loved ones? If so, comment below and tell me about them, or just comment with the name of someone you’d like to remember on this special day.
I’ll randomly choose one winner. This week I’m giving away a Project Linus blanket. (Project Linus was featured in Anna’s Healing.) This blanket is completely cool–a NO SEW fleece, and it has a military theme. I’ll send it to one lucky person along with some signed bookmarks from me.
Announcements for this week:
- Deep Shadows is now available for pre-order. This is the first book in my new dystopian series. Don’t know what dystopian is? Read my blog post at the Diamond Mind of Christian Fiction. You can now pre-order Deep Shadows. All vendors offer a pre-order price guarantee, so if the price goes down before the item is released, you receive the lower price. **Amazon ** B&N ** CBD.
- My June rafflectopter begins today, and it’s easy to enter daily. Check here for details. This month’s giveaway includes a copy of Hidden, a set of quilted coasters, a Texas note card, and a $10 Starbucks card.
