With the release of Shadowed Loyalty from Chrism Press (a division of WhiteFire Publishing, which my husband and I own), I’m super excited to be sharing with you a special campaign to get local libraries to stock faith-based fiction!
This particular campaign, being sponsored by Chrism Press, is geared specifically toward Catholic and Orthodox titles (like Shadowed Loyalty, The Number of Love, A Portrait of Loyalty, and A Song Unheard), but the same idea would be fabulous for ANY faith-based titles!
Visit https://chrismpress.com/stock-the-shelves/ for all the details!
The easy (and free!) way to share Catholic and Orthodox fiction with our local communities.
Did you know that, as a patron and taxpayer, you can suggest books for your public library’s permanent collection? Librarians are always looking for new, interesting reads, and that includes fiction from Catholic and Orthodox Christian voices! Recommending books is a great way to share the fruits of the sacramental imagination with a wider audience.
How to Stock Your Library Shelves:
1) Copy book information from publisher/author’s website (linked below) or bookmark this page on your phone.
2) Bring the information with you on your next library trip.
3) Say to your friendly librarian, “May I request [wonderful book] for your collection, please?”
4) Provide the book information.
5) With prayer and a little luck, the library will take up your suggestion!
Alternatively, check the library’s website for an online request form.
Here’s the information a library would need to stock my latest book, Shadowed Loyalty:
Title: Shadowed Loyalty
Author: Roseanna M. White
Genre: Historical romance
Publisher: Chrism Press, a division of WhiteFire Publishing
Publication Date: May 1, 2022
Back Cover Copy:
Sabina Mancari never questioned her life as the daughter of Chicago’s leading mob boss until bullets tear apart her world and the man she thought she loved turns out to be an undercover Prohibition agent. Ambushes, bribes, murder, prostitution—all her life, her father sheltered her from his crimes, but now she can no longer turn away from the truth. Maybe Lorenzo, the fiancé who barely paid her any attention in the last two years, has the right idea by planning to escape their world. But can she truly turn her back on her family?
All his life, Lorenzo’s family assumed he would become a priest, but he has different ideas—marrying Sabina and pursuing a career in the law. Despite his morals, he knows at the core he isn’t so unlike his mafiosi father and brothers. Has he, in trying to protect Sabina, forced her into the arms of the Prohibition agent bent on tearing her family apart? How can they rebuild what has so long been neglected and do it in the shadow of the dark empire of the Mafia?
Shadowed Loyalty, set amid the glitz and scandal of the Roaring Twenties, examines what love really means and how we draw lines between family and our own convictions, especially when following one could mean losing the other.
