VANISH hits the ECPA bestseller list for March 2011

Just got word from the marketing group at Tyndale that VANISH reached #33 on the ECPA Top 50 Bestseller list for March 2011 and #8 on the top 20 Fiction Bestseller list! This is a huge thrill for me since Vanish was released in 2008. Thanks to all the Christian retailers and booksellers for their support!

Christy Nomination

"Valley of the Shadow" is one of the finalists for a 2010 Christy Award in the Visionary category. This very exciting and a great honor as "Vanish" won a Christy last year. The two other finalists in this category are Karen Hancock for "The Enclave" and Jill Williamson for "By Darkness Hid".

Best wishes to Karen and Jill. Here's looking forward to the June 26th ceremony in St. Louis

New Title for 3rd Novel

YIKES!--has it been that long since I've updated my blog?? I think I recall making a new year's resolution back in January 2009 that I would try to update my blog at least once a week. So how's that working out?? Well, you try holding down a full-time day job while raising five kids AND writing a novel! I know, I know... enough with the excuses already. The truth is I never have anything new to report--and who really wants to hear what I think about politics or social issues? I did get some new pictures taken and am in the middle of revamping my website--so hopefully that should be coming up soon.

The other big news is a title change to my pending novel with Tyndale. They expressed some concern that the initial title "The Soul Eater" sounded a little too much like a horror novel. And horror novels don't typically sell well in the CBA market. Makes sense. Besides, I had always had another title in mind that I liked just as much, and Tyndale decided they liked it better. So the new official title of my next novel is "Beckon".

Now you may be wondering what "Beckon" and "The Soul Eater" have in common and the truth is... not much. Except, Beckon is the name of the town that plays a key role in this story. Either way... what's in a title?

Contract offer from Tyndale

Great news gentle readers! Tyndale House has extended an offer for a 3rd novel!! The working title is: "The Soul Eater" and is tentatively scheduled for an April 2011 release date. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to continue working with Tyndale and look forward to writing this next novel.

I don't want to give away too many secrets but the story involves some mysterious creatures and a remote town where all is not what it seems.

Now you might be saying, "Hey, Pawlik, that sounds just like your first two books." But rest assured, this story will be distinct from "Vanish" and "Valley of the Shadow."

It's a brand new storyline with entirely new characters. However, it will still have the same level of weirdness and suspense to satisfy those of you who enjoy those elements in your novels.

Thanks again to Tyndale for another great opportunity!

Jump in. Hang on.
