B&H Women’s Author Angie Smith Charts Best Seller with Mended, Signs B&H Kids Deal
NASHVILLE, Tenn., 11/16/12 –Popular women’s author and speaker Angie Smith appears this month on two CBA Best-Seller lists with her new release, Mended: Pieces of a Life Made Whole (B&H Publishing Group, ISBN-13: 978-1-4336-7660-4). This candid book about the wholeness that comes from being broken leaps up into both the Top 50 all-genre and Top 20 Christian Living rankings.
B&H Women’s executive editor Jennifer Lyell noted, “Angie has a distinct ability to share from her own spiritual journey—whether it be devastating loss, overcoming fear, or discovering how God can use broken pieces in our lives to make a difference—in a way that compels a tangible impact in the life of the reader. She is transparent, funny, and deeply committed to using her giftedness as a writer to reflect the redemptive power of God no matter the circumstance.”
Indeed, Smith has found a strong audience since her 2010 debut, I Will Carry You: The Sacred Dance of Grief and Joy, prompted best-selling author Beth Moore to recognize Angie as “a true writer. We will hear more from her.” Smith’s 2011 release, What Women Fear: Walking in Faith that Transforms, was nominated for an ECPA Christian Book Award. Further developing her voice as a writer, Angie Smith has signed a contract with B&H Kids and will publish her first children’s story, Audrey Bunny, in fall 2013. Although not directly tied to the true story of Smith’s daughter Audrey (told in I Will Carry You), readers may recognize some details in this heartwarming account of a toy bunny that learns we are all special, fearfully and wonderfully made as God intended.
Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith (lead singer of award-winning group Selah) and one of today’s most popular women’s authors and speakers. She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, TN. AngieSmithOnline.com
