Being “different to obey God may be “unfashionable”, but it sure is satisfying. Why settle for “Christianity as usual” when you can be like Jesus and help to change the world?

Tips for Retail Stores

News Flash - Fantasy fiction is now a hot commodity. Want to see sales soar in this quickly growing market? Follow in the footsteps of one innovative store and reap the rewards.

Here is a tip to help you grow this style of fiction for both young and old:

Since kids and adults alike enjoy reading this genre of books one store decided to make it easy to find. They combined all fantasy fiction, both YA and adult, into one easy to locate section, labeled it as Fantasy Fiction, and saw immediate results.

  1. Adults no longer had to visit the YA section!
  2. Young adults did not have to be seen in children’s areas!

Everyone was able to find exciting, thrilling fantasy fiction all grouped together.

Additional hints:

  • Sort by Author - not by age!
  • Allow enough space for covers to be face out. Let those vibrant covers sell themselves!

Happy Selling!

P.S. — Please consider sharing your success stories with us so we can pass them along to others. When one wins we all win!

Surely there's more than one way to get to heaven? Bestselling author Andy Stanley addresses this popular belief held even among Christians. But believing that all good people go to heaven raises major problems, Stanley reveals. Is goodness not rewarded, then? Is Christianity not fair? Maybe not, he says. Readers will find out why Jesus taught that goodness is not even a requirement to enter heaven - and why Christianity is beyond fair. Andy Stanley leads believers and skeptics alike to a grateful awareness of God's enormous grace and mercy.

Format: Trade Paper 6-Pack Easter/Spring Edition
Price: $14.97
