>Thank You for Your Time and Hard Work Stephanie!

>Dear readers, I’ve had a blast here with you all on the Moody Fiction blog since we opened its doors in November 2009! From critiquing book covers, swapping new titles, and sharing book reviews, this blog has been a warm and welcoming community for readers, and we’re looking forward to growing even more from here! I want to let you know that I will be transitioning out of my role as Managing Editor, and welcoming Deb Keiser on board, our Acquisitions Editor for fiction novels. I won’t be blogging with Moody Fiction anymore, but you can catch me on some of our other blogs by Moody Publishers, which if you don’t know about them yet, now is a good time for me to introduce you: is a resource center for building strong relationships, whether you are single, dating, engaged, or newlyweds. They offer new articles every week and interviews with special guests such as Gary Chapman, author of The 5 Love Languages, and former Miss America Lauren Nelson. is the official blog for all things Moody Publishers, and here we focus on “faith, publishing, and literacy culture.” Ever wonder how we choose a book cover or what the editing process looks like? Come get a behind-the-scenes look here! is a free online resource to help you delve into God’s Word with devotions, Bible study tools, sermon prep help, and book studies.
