More Catholic Fiction

Only a few days left to enter The Dog Days of Summer Catholic Fiction Giveaway at The deadline is 12:00 midnight Pacific Time. To enter just click on their link above and leave a comment. They have 28 books to give away and will be selecting the winners randomly.

I was surprised to see so many titles, only two of which I had previously read. (They were Bleeder and Awakening, in case you were wondering. And I can recommend both.) So I'm kind of wondering if all of them are Catholic fiction as such or just fiction which Catholic readers like and recommend. Either way I'm looking forward to searching for these titles.

I have a special collection of Catholic fiction housed in a separate bookcase in my bedroom. Since my definition of Catholic fiction is "a work which takes place in a universe in which Catholicism is true," it's a motley collection ranging from Declare by Tim Powers to Catholic Tales for Boys & Girls by Caryll Houselander. And I'm always looking for new books to add. So if you have any titles to recommend (or can tell me anything about the books in the give-away), please speak up in the comments box.

Good Afternoon Catholic Bibliophagist,

I am writing to you today because of my not-yet-released debut novel. I am working to publicize the novel through blurbs and endorsements from bloggers such as yourself, who are interested in Catholic fiction.

I am wondering if I can submit my novel for a review on your blog. I'd like to send you information about my project (as well as the manuscript, if you'd like), but I don't know where to send it.

Thank you

If you look at the sidebar on the right under "About Me," you can click on "View My Complete Profile." There you will find a link to my email. That's the best way to contact me about that sort of request. (By the way, I could not email you directly because your comment settings do not include a visible email address.)
