Exciting News!

Three projects we’ve recently signed here at Bethany House I wanted to alert you to:

1. Ann Coulter’s first novel, Traitor With the Six-Pack Abs ! Very excited about this. It’s a chick lit book about Aubrey Lawson, a single, lovelorn, brassy DC commentator whose next door neighbor is a drop dead hunk—but also page for, you guessed it, Senator Clinton of New York. Can Aubrey convert the young man before the 2008 election? Not much Christian content but she’s a Republican, so that’s good enough, right?

2. We’ve had Left Behind. We’ve had The Last Disciple. Now Bethany House takes its bite out of the eschatological fiction world with Wednesday, March 22, 2006, 7:15pm, Central Time. All I can say is, "Be ready." And "Crap, it’s going to interrupt Lost."

3. And Bethany House is expanding into the toy business. We’re going after a piece of the Chronicles of Narnia pie that’s sure to explode after the film is released this winter by producing tie-in products. These include Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan action figures, magic wardrobe doll sets, wind-up mechanical badgers, and even a scale Stone Table where kids can crucify their own plush Aslans.
