Thorndike Large Print Editions
Aztec, NM −Pelican Book Group has announced that the novel “From Scratch” by C.E. Hilbert, which released in February 2016, has been chosen by Thorndike Press to be offered in Large Print Hardcover format this coming August. The new format will retail for approximately $30.
“I couldn’t be happier to solidify a relationship with Thorndike,” said Nicola Martinez, Editor-in-Chief for Pelican. “They’re an excellent company that, for years, has been instrumental in providing great books to library patrons. ‘From Scratch’ is a perfect choice. Pelican has a numerous titles that fit the library market and I’m hopeful we’ll see more titles picked up for large print hardcover releases in future. I credit our subsidiary rights agent Riggins International Rights Services with working to pull the deal together.”
Martinez describes “From Scratch” as a romance suspense novel. The novel’s main character, Maggie McKitrick, finds herself at odds with a new landlord, the town’s Police Chief Sean Taylor. Taylor likes to keep the peace, but his new tenant is making it nearly impossible to keep anything on an even keel—including his heart. As Maggie and Sean draw closer together, her long buried dreams about her life are reawakened into a hopeful prayer…until a threat from her past promises to destroy their future. Will Maggie be forced to run—again—starting fresh? Or will God answer her prayer and give her the happily-ever-after she’s started from scratch?
The novel is written by C.E. Hilbert who lives in Columbus, OH and works in the fashion industry by day and writes romantic fiction by night. Her writing career began when she had to wait a whole week in between Bookmobile visits. To fill the gap, she pulled out a pen and some paper and began to jot down stories while she awaited the next round of books delivered on wheels. Hilbert says she enjoys the opportunity to share God’s love through her writing in a tangible, real and somewhat “quirky” way. She says, “I am convinced God has a sense of humor equal to the size of His patience level!”
