    My daughter and I were shopping at Barnes and Noble for Ted Dekker books for her birthday. The sales clerk was in the Christian section and asked my daughter if Dekker was actually scary. When Hannah assured her that it was, the clerk clucked and commented “It makes me very nervous to have it so close to the Amish romances. I’m under orders not to upset our Amish story readers in any any way and I think that Dekker’s covers might scare them off!”
    Enough said?

    Lori, that’s funny.

    Shannon, go for it. (By the way, I replied to your comment in my other blog about Ted Dekker).

    Oh goodness, Lori! Is this what I’m up against? Ha! Well, I’m up for the battle. It’s not just paranormal that has poor representation on Christian bookshelves. The YA shelves are horribly understocked. There’s Dekker’s YA series and then a bunch of non-fiction stuff. Where’s the YA representation, friends? My mission, people. Count on it!
