A friend of mine who’s a librarian told me that there’s more libraries in the U.S. than McDonalds’. I thought that was pretty cool because it seems I can’t drive anywhere without seeing a Mickey D’s. Even cooler, we all can have a say in which books our local libraries carry.
That brings me to the Stock the Shelves campaign hosted by Chrism Press! Along with dozens of other authors, we’re encouraging people to request Catholic and Orthodox fiction at their library. Most libraries have an online form where you can request a book. To make it easy, we’ve compiled all the info you’d need to make that request.
Here’s the info to request my novels at your library:

How can she be drawn to a priest when she has such a wonderful boyfriend? Confused and torn, she struggles to forgive, love, and find redemption. Turning to her faith for direction, she learns that forgiving herself may be the hardest part of all.
