Christian Book Previews Launches Online Book Site for Christian Readers

CHRISTIAN BOOK PREVIEWS LAUNCHES ONLINE BOOK SITE FOR CHRISTIAN READERSFeatures Harvest House, Multnomah, Tyndale and others to offer the latest in Christian booksSAN JOSE, Calif. June 20, 2003— Christian Book Previews announced today the official launch of its online book lounge featuring book excerpts, reviews, author bios, interviews, and more details not found at traditional bookstores. Additionally, Christian Book Previews unveiled a price comparison tool for buyers who want to find the best prices online before purchasing."Early on, we realized that information about books was scattered around the Web, and in some cases missing altogether," said Stacy Oliver, founder of Christian Book Previews. "From the very beginning, we pushed to create an all-inclusive spot on the Internet that allows visitors to sit in their own comfy chair and browse the latest and the best in Christian publishing."Book publishers recognize the need, too, and have participated fully in providing content for Christian Book Previews. Brynn Sarazin of Harvest House agrees. "Christian Book Previews looks great, and it's wonderful to work with Stacy. We're excited about the ministry and the partnership we've established.""One of the great things about Christian Book Previews is its focus on a wide variety of Christian books," said Debra Lykins, spokesperson for Tyndale Publishing. "I'm particularly pleased that it features fiction because this is one area that doesn't get a lot of exposure through Christian media outlets. We're looking forward to seeing the impact of this site.""Christian Book Previews is a great resource for busy people," said Joel Kneedler, senior publicist for Multnomah Publishers. "The site is simple in design and easy to navigate. Plus, Stacy makes our books look good!"In addition to lengthy book excerpts, the site also offers a bi-monthly newsletter with sneak peeks at new books, contest, and online bookstore sales. With books being added constantly, and features changing twice a month, there is a book to interest every reader."It's encouraging to see how excited everyone is about this new resource," said Ms. Oliver. "As the site continues to grow in volume of books, we will also be offering new features and delivery media, which will really get fun."Other publishers whose books appear on the site include: Baker Books, Christian Publishers, Cook Communications, Moody Publishers, NavPress, Thomas Nelson, Warner Faith, Waterbrook, and W Publishing.About Christian Book PreviewsHeadquartered in San Jose, Calif., Christian Book Previews is a pioneer in online Christian book communities.
