2022 Christian Fiction Releases & a Giveaway

By Deena Adams

Happy New Year! On this first week in January, I’m providing a list of some 2022 new releases as a resource for readers. This list was compiled from the responses of people in several reader and writer Facebook groups when asked which books they’re most looking forward to or who’s releasing a book.

I’ve also added a few books by authors I have scheduled to interview on my blog this year. You can find more releases by publication date at Fiction Finder.

If a preorder link is available, I’ve included it. You can click the title to learn more.

For this week’s giveaway, one person who comments on this post will win your choice of one of the January releases, which are pictured in the header photo.

    Thanks to everyone for commenting and participating in this giveaway opportunity. Congratulations to Tammy Eanes! Look for an email from me to let me know which January release you’d like.

  • Rebekah

    I would have a hard choice picking. I’ve read a few, and Song for the Hunter is excellent. I’d also like to read Abigail Wilson’s. Those would be my top choices. (Only because I own one or two of the others!)

      Hi, Rebekah. You’re the second person today who has mentioned Abigail Wilson’s book. I’m going to have to check her out! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!
