Introducing the Australian Christian Readers Blog Alliance (ACRBA)

by Narelle Atkins and Jenny Blake (aka Ausjenny)


We are excited to announce the launch of the Australian Christian Readers Blog Alliance (ACRBA), the first blog alliance to cater for the Australian Christian book market. We will feature Christian fiction, non-fiction and children’s books in blog tours starting in November 2012.

If you blog regularly, have a love of books and are interested in writing book reviews, please check out our blog and consider joining our alliance. Membership is free and we welcome both Australian and overseas members, although overseas members may only have the option of electronic review copies of books.

We welcome book submissions from Australian and overseas authors and publishers, although we may give first preference to books by Australian authors. We will also consider high quality self-published books that are well edited.

We are touring fiction books during the first week of the month and non-fiction or children’s books during the third week of the month. Below is our Blog Schedule for November and December.

November 2012
Fiction 5th - 9th: Return to Baragula by Mary Hawkins (ICFW blog member)
Non-fiction 19th - 24th: Bethlehem's Warrior (31 Day Devotional) by Ray Hawkins (ICFW blog member)

December 2012
Fiction 3rd - 7th: Back to Resolution by Rose Dee
Non-fiction 17th - 21th: Strength Renewed: Meditations for Your Journey through Breast Cancer by Shirley Corder (ICFW blog member)
