Calling All Book Clubs!!!

My publisher, Bethany House, is featuring Searching for Eternity as a book club selection for this new year.  If you would like to receive information about having me speak to your book club (via phone) or receive a few things I've prepared with Bethany to help you with your book club discussion of my novel, please email Debra Larsen at: anopenbook@bethanyhouse.com.

Ask Bethany to send your book club the following two documents along with bookmarks of Searching for Eternity:

Bethany House will be sending out information about other Christian fiction they are sponsoring, so be sure to let Debra have the name of your book club. 

Also be sure to check out the 'Discussion Questions' page on this site.
