Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) July 7, 2006
The Christian book industry aims to win souls and sell books, in that order. The good news for the industry and Terri Jones Salter, Author of Sins of My Mother (http://www.sinsofmymother.com/), is that the two goals are compatible. According to the Association of American Publishers, the religious book market grew at a rate of 8.5 percent a year between 1997 and 2005, with net sales last year totaling nearly $1.7 billion dollars. Those who read Christian books read more books overall: 58% read at least one book a month compared to 55% of the overall population reading at least one book per month.
All this is excellent news for Terri Jones Salter, co-founder of Living Word, a nonprofit ministry aiding those suffering from emotional crises such as divorce, adultery, abuse, and abandonment and author of Sins of My Mother, http://www.sinsofmymother.com/. The novel chronicles the spiritual journey of Angela Roberts, a young, successful “people pleasing” woman who has sacrificed her personal happiness in an attempt to mend the lives of her alcoholic mother and dysfunctional siblings.
“Food for the soul,” “POWERFUL” and “Life affirming” are only a few words used to describe Sins of My Mother (http://www.sinsofmymother.com/) by readers across the nation. Having garnished national attention by the likes of Nedine Hunter of The RAWSISTAZ, it is leading the new movement of Christian novels by painting:
“a gritty, very real picture of poverty and overall chaos. The story lines are neatly woven together in a manner that flows and leaves the reader wanting to know what is going to happen next. It’s a long roller coaster ride for each of the characters before the conclusion of the book. My sentiments upon completing this book were “WOW, what a journey.”
