Five On Friday: Newly Announced Inspirational Book Deals

There are so many new book deals being made in the inspirational market that we’ve decided to devote a new special column to them. Here are five of this week's most inspiring inspirational book deals — just after they’ve been announced! 

Regina Scott has just sold an untitled series romance trilogy to Steeple Hill’s Love Inspired line. The stories are set in Regency England and will feature three men who are tasked with bringing out their deceased uncle’s secret daughter. If they fail, none of them will receive their inheritance. 

If you prefer a tale with more serious subject matter, the upcoming inspirational suspense story by Jordyn Redwood, Lilly’s Ashes may be for you. The mystery follows Lily, the victim of a rape that leaves her pregnant. After the attack, her life begins to unravel until Lily decides that she must bring her rapist to justice. However, in doing so she becomes the target of another crime. Lilly’s Ashes is slated for publication in Summer 2012. 

In Ramona Cecil's A Bride’s Sweet Surprise in Sauers, Indiana, a couple that originally objected to an arranged marriage now turns to God to save their relationship. Publication date TBA

Following her popular novel Sooner Sunrise, author Janet Lee Barton continues her series about finding love during the Oklahoma Land Rush. The newest book, Sooner Sunset, will be published in the fall. 

Debut author Regina Jennings’ Sixty Acres and a Bride will hit bookshelves in Spring 2012. In her novel, Jennings has adapted a story in the Book of Ruth, but set the tale in 1878 Texas. 

And here’s a Friday Freebie: 

Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove are producing a documentary-like film titled Welcome to the Family, which is a basic introduction to Christianity that focuses on how God creates connections to the people around us. No date has been set for the DVD's release.
