fringe-hours-coverJessica N. Turner’s first book with Revell, The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You has hit the Wall Street Journal best-seller list for the week ending Jan. 17. The book debuted at No. 6 on the nonfiction e-book list. This news comes on the heels of the release of a related title, My Fringe Hours gift book.

With the new release, the Baker Publishing Group division engaged in additional marketing and promotion efforts to promote the core message of The Fringe Hours through various online channels. The promotional campaign featured a variety of guest and feature posts from popular bloggers. Turner and her books have also received significant publicity features including O magazine,, Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine,,, Houston Family, The Chicago Tribune and The Tennessean.

Twila Bennett, executive director of marketing and publicity for Revell, commented on Turner’s achievement.

“To hit a best-seller list nearly a year after the book released is a remarkable accomplishment,” Bennett said. “It’s a testament to the evergreen topic of the book and how it’s continuing to inspire women in their everyday lives. We are honored to have partnered with Jessica for such an important message.”

In The Fringe Hours, Turner shares real-life examples and practical advice that inspires women to utilize their “fringe hours”—pockets of time throughout the day that often go underutilized or wasted—to explore their passions and practice self-care.
