Writing news!

Well, friends. I can finally make this announcement. I am very excited to say that I have just signed a contract with Tyndale House for my second book! This is a sequel to my first, Thicker than Blood, in that some of the main characters from Thicker become minor characters in the second. Yes, you will find out what happens between Hunter and Christy! :)

As of today, the official title of this book is Bound by Guilt (thank you Jan Stob!). I'm excited about the new title as it perfectly conveys the themes of this novel. Right now we're looking at an early 2011 release date.

So there you have it. My big news! The amazing design team at Tyndale House is hard at work on the cover, and I can't wait to see what they come up with! Stay tuned...

That's great. i look forward to reading it. I just recently finished Blood a few weeks ago and have been meaning to let you know how much I enjoyed it. Was my first venture reading an inspirational novel of any genre and while I didn't truly know what to expect I was sucked right in by your storytelling power.

Congrats, CJ! I love the double meaning of the word "bound" here, since I know your novel will probably touch on the topic of book collecting. Way to go!
