We love it when company stops by on an ordinary day!  While you're visiting, you might enjoy learning a few insider secrets from our Super Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What's new/What's next in Lisa Wingate books?

A:  2014 has been an exciting year so far! The Prayer Box has been shortlisted for several book awards in its category, we've recently signed a film option on one of the books, and I'm excited to bring you two new stories set in the North Carolina Tidewater and the Blue Ridge Mountains.  A historical thread related to the Outer Banks and the legend of the Lost Colony on Roanoke Island ties this group of contemporary novels together. I hope you'll keep reading to discover this fascinating mystery tied to Appalachia and the Outer Banks.

Q: What's your latest book about?

A:  The Story Keeper is an exciting dual time frame story about a successful New York editor who discovers a mysterious manuscript on an old slush pile and finds herself caught up in the story of a girl trapped by dangerous men in turn-of-the-century Appalachia. RT Bookreviews gave it a Top Pick, and Booklist said, "Wingate is, quite simply, a master storyteller." I can't wait for you to read it!
