Steeple Hill Books
women’s fiction that inspires…
Morning, all! Ruthy here with a splendorific, stupendous, over-the-top, worthy of birthday month announcement!!!
Yes, for once I’m not scolding, nagging, chastising or being bossy. (I call those posts inspirational… it just SOUNDS like scolding. You understand.)
No, today I’m here to announce that Melissa Endlich, Senior Editor of Steeple Hill Books will be joining us on November 13th, 2008.
Most of you are aware that Steeple Hill, under the overall direction of Joan Marlow Golan, has opened their doors, hearts and desk space to new authors countless times, including our own Deb Giusti, Missy Tippens, Janet Dean and Cheryl Wyatt. The Seekers are proud of their strong relationship with the editors at Steeple Hill. Furthermore, Melissa and her editorial staff have been gracious about committing precious time to contest judging, which means they’re always on the lookout for that new voice, fresh appeal and great story. And in these times of economic slowdowns, when other houses have either folded their fiction lines or downsized the number of books/year, Steeple Hill is actually increasing their popular Love Inspired line to six books per month.
Yup, you heard right. Month, not year.
They've also initiated Love Inspired Historicals, a savvy chick-lit line in Steeple Hill Cafe', and suspense-filled novels in Love Inspired Suspense.
Now I need your help. What do you want to know? What would you like me to ask Melissa? (She’s a sweetheart, by the way…)
Weight and age are totally off the table, just so you know.
Post your questions here today, or e-mail me if you want anonymity. (I’m not calling you a chicken but I might be thinking it.)
Mosey on in, help yourself to the cappuccino bar and grab a slice of breakfast pizza. I made it with crumbled sausage this morning. Fluffy, golden scrambled egg, country sausage, cheese… a breakfast lover’s delight. Definitely not Atkins-friendly.
Big grin here.
Give me advice. (You might want to mark the day and time on your calendars… Ruthy asking for advice… Who knew????) Do you want to know if changes are in store for Steeple Hill with their recent editorial movement? The do’s and don’ts of Steeple Hill? The oft-mentioned ‘list’ of taboos?
Melissa’s coming to chat with everyone throughout the day on 11/13, so give me some great baseline questions to ask her. Let’s lay the groundwork for a great day in Seekerville.
And someone remember to bring chocolate!
