SouthernBelleView-webThree Tyndale authors are now part of the popular blog lineup at Southern BelleView (southernbelleviewdaily.com). This expansion will allow readers to follow daily posts, enter prize giveaways and dialogue with 10 leading inspirational writers.

The team, which seeks to give their online gatherings the chatty, down-home feel of a Southern porch, now includes Tyndale novelists Denise Hildreth Jones, Jolina Petersheim and Lisa Wingate in addition to Julie Cantrell, Eva Marie Everson, Kellie Coates Gilbert, Rachel Hauck, Amy Hill Hearth, Nicole Seitz and Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, writers who have garnered nearly 60 literary honors and awards between them.

“In a world where we seem to have gotten away from chatting over the fence with our neighbors, we’ve built a front porch for our greater neighborhood, so to speak,” said Wingate, author of The Prayer Box. “Even though it’s online, it has an old-fashioned, Southern vibe, where women of all ages kick off their shoes, sip sweet tea, laugh, cry and support each other through it all.”

Together, the expanded group of authors has published more than 50 novels and 23 works of nonfiction, as well as three children’s books, a Broadway play and a feature film.

“We have created a place online to discuss family, faith, fiction and all things southern,” said Cantrell. “It’s become a space for us to share our lives and examine the challenges we all face, especially as women. We particularly enjoy interacting with our readers and discussing the quirks of Southern life.”
