Abingdon Press Fiction Announces the Quilts of Love Series
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Beginning October 2012, Christian publisher Abingdon Press will launch a new series, the Quilts of Love, as part of their growing fiction line. Based on the idea that behind every heirloom quilt is a story of how it came to be, the Quilts of Love series will focus on the romance and adventures of the women who quilted a part of their family history.
Senior Acquisitions Editor Ramona Richards believes there is a strong connection between storytelling and quilts. “More than a creative art, quilts have been passed from one generation to another as precious heirlooms. They tell our family history, and they have bought communities together,” notes Richards.
As a reflection of Abingdon’s diverse fiction line, the Quilts of Love series will feature contemporary and historical romances as well as women’s fiction and the occasional light mystery. The series will draw from some of Christian publishing’s best-known authors and new talent. Authors involved in the project include Sandra Bricker, Loree Lough, Christa Allan, Barbara Cameron, Lynette Sowell, and Lisa Carter.
Abingdon Press will release one book per month through March 2014. beginning with Carolyn Zane’s Storm’s Signal (Abingdon Press, October 2012). Richards says, “Each book in the series tells the story of one quilt, one family, and one unforgettable love.”
