Summerside Press to publish Melody Carlson novel

Summerside Press’s latest fiction acquisition is best-selling author Melody Carlson’s installment of Summerside’s new LOVE FINDS YOU series. Set in Carlson’s home town, Love Finds You in Sisters, Oregon, will be released in September 2009.

"I'm excited to be writing for Summerside Press, and I think a story set in my own town is just plain fun!” says Carlson.

“Melody is a greatly respected voice in the industry, and her hometown makes a stunning setting for a story that is packed with humor, adventure, and romance. We are absolutely delighted that she has joined our lineup of talented authors,” says Rachel Meisel, Summerside Press fiction editor.

LOVE FINDS YOU is an inspirational romance fiction series set in actual American towns with interesting, romantic, or quirky sounding names. The authors draw on each town’s local flavor and history to beautifully weave stories that will transport readers via the printed page and leave them anticipating the next exceptionally satisfying addition to the series. Just released in February are the two latest titles in the series, Love Finds You in Humble, Texas, by Anita Higman and Love Finds You in Last Chance, California, by Miralee Ferrell.

Two more novels, Love Finds You in Paradise, Pennsylvania from Loree Lough and Love Finds You in Maiden, North Carolina from Tamela Hancock Murray, are slated for an April release. Exciting new installments will follow approximately every other month.

“The LOVE FINDS YOU series is a great way for readers to explore America and be swept away to charming little towns like Sisters,” says Carlton Garborg, company president. “But you can’t publish great books without amazing authors. We’re fortunate to be working with great writers, and having Melody come on board just helps expand our readership that much more.”


At Summerside Press, our passion is to publish the best in inspirational reading. We hope that our Christian Romance, Devotional, Gift Book, and Christian Living titles will inspire you to see the beauty of life’s journey wherever it takes you. Come along with us.
