Crossbooks, the Christian self-publishing division of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention, is proud to announce that the rights of CrossBooks title 8 Crucial Realities: Successful Choices for Graduates(ISBN: 9781433673108, PRICE $14.99) by Lissa Raines, have been acquired by the B&H Publishing Group.

"8 Crucial Realities" was written specifically for recent college graduates who find themselves at a crossroads. Raines explores the many misconceptions that can lead graduates down a dark, self-defeating path and investigates eight spiritual and practical topics, including money, relationships and God’s will. She provides tips and practical insights for living in line with God’s Word and principles.

“B&H’s decision to pick up Lissa’s book illustrates perfectly the opportunities that CrossBooks makes available to new authors,” said Selma Wilson, president of B&H Publishing Group. “We view CrossBooks as not only a forum for authors to publish their works, but as a resource for our traditional publishing division to discover exceptional writings from top Christian leaders.”

Raines’ guide is the first CrossBooks self-published title picked up by a traditional publisher, fulfilling one of the missions of the imprint when LifeWay created it: to provide a proving ground for new authors. Bill Nielsen, director of CrossBooks, commented that he anticipates there will be additional CrossBooks authors to follow Raines’ path into traditional publishing.
