Thanks to Jill Eileen Smith for forwarding this list of new Christian fiction releases! I'll be reviewing her book Michal on this blog. So excited to read it!! Here's her post:

March - what a great month! For me it marks the month my (Jill's) debut novel hits bookstore shelves, and I step down as New Releases Coordinator for ACFW. Lynette Eason, who also has a new release this month, will take my place, so be sure to welcome her to this position!

To get a head start on spring, we've got 16 new releases to choose from! And they all sound great! Check them out - and don't forget to visit my new Spotlight interview with author, artist, and agent extraordinaire Wendy Lawton. Wendy had a new children's book release in February.
