Hello Blog Friends,

We’ve got lots in store on the AUT front. Anna is picking up the copy-edited manuscript for a final read-through, flap copy is being finalized – soon we will have much news to report. But until that all comes together and is blog-able, I wanted to report some big Brown & Miller news.  Prayers for Sale, the 8th book by longtime B&M author Sandra Dallas, has been picked by Barnes & Noble as the main selection for their Recommends program.  Selections for Barnes & Noble Recommends are chosen by 100 of the company’s booksellers from across the U.S. Each selection is a book that Barnes & Noble recommends unconditionally, believes is “unputdownable” and is especially appropriate for book discussion groups. We couldn’t be happier for Sandra! Check it out:

A Friendship Stitched in Time - Set in 1930s Colorado, Prayers for Sale weaves a charming tale of friendship between two very different women - one a wise elderly widow, the other a 17-year-old with prayers in desperate need of answers - who find common ground in their love of quilting. Sandra Dallas has been called 'a quintessential American voice,' and this remarkable novel is a testament to the finest parts of the human spirit. Prayers for Sale, Sandra Dallas. List Price: $24.95.
