Book Launch Scheduled - authors, giveaways, food and more!

Join Valor Publishing as we throw an Author Lollapalooza that you won't want to miss at the Gateway Barnes & Noble. 6 Rio Grande Salt Lake City, UT 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. March 16th, marks the day that Valor will launch five of its new books and authors Michele Ashman Bell, Tristi Pinkston, Karen Hoover, Daron Fraley and Kimberly Job will all be in attendance. We'll start with a mini-concert from Shaun "Hammer Hands" Barrowes. ( And then we'll move on to the main event!

Michele's "Summer in Paris" is sure to delight YA readers with romance and laughter. (Young Adult)

Tristi's "Secret Sisters" will leave you in stitches as you dive into seniors taking on the mob, and believe me, hilarity ensues! (Comedic Mystery)

Karen's "The Sapphire Flute" takes us into the world of magic and shapeshifting. The first book in the Wolfchild Saga we watch as two teenagers take on enemies beyond imagination in an effort to save their world. (YA Fantasy)

Daron's "The Thorn" takes us to another world at war as the believers keep an eye on the prophecies of a savior being born on a different world far away. (Speculative Fiction)

Kimberly's "I'll Know You By Heart" is romance at its finest. Kimberly introduces us to a battered woman who frees herself from her abusive husband only to find love with the father of the little girl she babysits. Suspenseful and equally heart-wrenching and heart-warming at the exact same time. (Read more about the books at
Although none of Valor's books are distinctly LDS, the wildly popular LDS Womens Book Review podcast ( will be broadcasting from the book-launch party. They not only will interview the authors, but will be reviewing readers as well. Please make sure you stop by their table sometime during the party. So join us and meet the authors, listen to Shaun Barrowes, mingle with other authors, munch on refreshments and just enjoy yourselves! It's all about making reading fun, fun, fun!
