Welcome to my list of Christian fiction being published this month. I'm starting to think this might not be a good idea - too many really interesting titles! All links are to http://www.amazon.com/ and all prices are in US dollars. Most are available as Kindle ebooks from Amazon, or epub ebooks from sites like http://www.koboreads.com/, http://www.whitcoulls.co.nz/ or http://www.koorong.com.au/. Your local Christian bookseller should be able to order them for you, or you can mail order from Amazon or Koorong.
Leave a comment if one of your favourite authors is also releasing a book, then I can add it to the list.
