Lisa Wingate From modern-day Roanoke Island to the sweeping backdrop of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains and Roosevelt's WPA folklore writers, past and present intertwine to create an unexpected destiny in Lisa Wingate's new novel, The Sea Keeper's Daughters (Tyndale House, paperback, $14.99, on sale 9/8/15).


Author of Booklist Top 10 picks in 2012 and 2013, Lisa skillfully weaves stories that Publishers Weekly has called "masterful" and ForeWord referred to as "filled with lyrical prose, hope, and healing." Lisa is a journalist, an inspirational speaker, and a columnist for Southern Writers magazine. She is a seven-time ACFW Carol Award nominee, a Christy Award nominee, an Oklahoma Book Award finalist, and a two-time Carol Award winner.


Matthew Neill Null In Matthew Neill Null's lyrical and suspenseful debut novel, Honey from the Lion (Lookout, paperback, $18.95, on sale 9/8/15), a turn-of-the-century logging company decimates ten thousand acres of virgin forest in the West Virginia Alleghenies and transforms a brotherhood of timber wolves into revolutionaries.


Matthew is a recipient of the Mary McCarthy Prize and the Michener Copernicus Society of America Award, and his fiction appears in American Short Fiction, Ecotone, The Oxford American, Ploughshares, The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, and The Best American Mystery Stories. A native of West Virginia, he holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers Workshop and was fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, where he is currently writing coordinator. Honey from the Lion is his first novel.


Kim Wright In the vein of Jojo Moyes and Cheryl Strayed's Wild, The Canterbury Sisters by Kim Wright (Gallery, paperback, $16.00) is a warm and touching novel about a woman who embarks on a pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral after losing her mother, sharing life lessons -- in the best Chaucer tradition -- with eight other women along the way.


Kim is the author of Love in Mid Air and The Unexpected Waltz and has been writing about travel, food, and wine for more than twenty years for many magazines, including Wine Spectator, Self, Travel & Leisure, and Vogue. She has twice won the Lowell Thomas Award for travel writing. The Canterbury Sisters is her third novel, and she also ballroom dances competitively. Kim lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.


Matthew Vollmer Matthew Vollmer's new short story collection, Gateway to Paradise (Persea, paperback, $15.95, on sale 9/1/15), is a bold, vibrant, and surprising collection. This new book explores the confrontation with desire as a path to self-actualization.


Matthew is the author of a previous short story collection, Future Missionaries of America, as well as an essay collection, inscriptions for headstones, and he is the co-editor of Fakes. His work has appeared in numorous publications, including Best American Essays 2013.
