And More Buzz: from the Daily News

Again, we are just so proud to share our excitement over the success of our book. Our hope is that the inspiration and message of the book helps to heal those that have been touched by life changing events like the characters in the novel...

KINGSFORD - "Treasuring Grace," a fiction novel by Rob Plumley and Tracy Roberts, has been nominated by the Christian Small Publishers Association for Book of the Year for 2011.

Christian Small Publishers is located in Charlotte, N.C., and its mission is to represent, promote, and strengthen the small publisher in the Christian marketplace.


Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year honors books produced by small publishers each year for outstanding contribution to Christian life.
A few years ago, Roberts awoke from a vivid dream.
After sharing the dream with several people, she became convinced that the dream needed to be published as a story.


"It's more than just a novel it's a story with a message," she said.
Roberts and her husband Doug, reside in Breitung Township with their children Tyler, Trevor, Renee and Grace.
They attend Queen of Peace Church in Kingsford.


A corroboration between Roberts and Plumley began in the spring of 2009.
Starting with Roberts' theme and main plot elements, Plumley added the details and conveyed it all to paper.
Plumley his wife, Linda, and their son Eddie are also of Breitung Township and attend Queen of peace Church in Kingsford.


The book is about a woman's secrets.


"Liz Swanson is a loving wife and mother," Plumley writes about the book.
"Her life isn't quite what she'd imagined, but she considers herself lucky. She has a good husband, beautiful children, and fulfillment outside of her home through volunteer work."


"On some days she doesn't even notice the dull ache in her heart," Plumley says.
"While she's preparing for the family's summer kickoff at Lake George, the ache disappears and her sudden happiness is mistaken for anticipation of their weekend. However, as the family heads north, there are clouds on the horizon that have nothing to do with the weather," he said.


"A careful observer might see the signs that something is wrong, but only Liz's daughter, who's found some hidden journals, has any idea," Plumley said. "By the end of the weekend, there will be no escaping the truth or its painful buried secrets, and it will take all of their strength to get through the storm together."
Christian Small Publishers Association was established in 2004 to fill a need for an association to represent, promote, and strengthen small publishers in the Christian marketplace.


During the past seven years, Christian Small Publishers Association has grown from its three original publisher members to 100 small publisher members.
