Catholic Novel Reaches #1 on Amazon After St. Therese Novena? Author To Discuss on Live CatholicTV Talk Show
On March 22nd, Michelle Buckman will be interviewed on the live CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.
Michelle is the author of the Catholic novel Rachel’s Contrition. Michelle was astounded at the success of the book especially since very little marketing had been done.
In an interview with the National Catholic Register, Michelle talked about how her novel reached #1 in the Women’s fiction category in October 2010. When asked if she had done a “big promotional event”, Michelle replied, “not unless you count the continuous novena to St. Therese that I had going for this book since the end of August.”
This is the Day airs at 10:30 a.m. ET at CatholicTV.com and on CatholicTV cable outlets. The show is rebroadcast at 7:30 p.m. and other times during the week.
Rachel’s Contrition is a book about a woman whose young daughter dies. This gives way to grief-spawned delusions which cause Rachel to lose her husband, her home, and custody of her son.
Help arrives from two unlikely sources: a young teen, Lilly, battling her own demons, and a tattered holy card depicting Saint Therese of Lisieux.
The 2011 Eucharistic Congress for College Students and Young Adults (The Eucharistic Congress) will also be discussed on This is the Day. The annual Eucharistic Congress, which takes place in Boston’s North End, includes a Eucharistic procession with hundreds of young people. Streets are temporarily blocked off for the procession and each year, onlookers watch with curiosity.
Fr. Matt Williams will appear on This is the Day to discuss the Eucharistic Congress. Fr. Matt is the Director of the Office of the New Evangelization of Youth and Young Adults of the Archdiocese of Boston.
