The Last Dernier Publishing Newsletter of 2017!

Live, Love, Laugh

Have you seen the slogan Live, Love, Laugh? It seems to be the in-thing to have inspirational thoughts like this on plaques, calendars, pictures and ornaments.

If you could give anything to the ones you love this Christmas, wouldn’t you love to give the gifts of life, love and laughter? It’s what God our Father gave us, that first Christmas! As humans, there’s a limit to what we can do, but we can give the ones we love a Christian book that will Live, love, laughhelp them find true and eternal love, life and laughter. We can’t force people to come to Jesus, neither would we want to, but we can show them the way through a Christian book.

Better than a Star Wars razor, I think. Or chocolate, or even an i-phone! Just think – true life, eternal love and joy that knows no limits. That has to be the best present ever. 🙂


Revenge of the Flying Carpet front coverI was interviewed by Matt Dick of UCB Radio last week about our new book, Revenge of the Flying Carpet. It was a bit last minute, as someone had suddenly dropped out and they had a hole to fill in their schedule! Please don’t feel obliged, but this is the link if you’d like to listen (it will be on the server for another couple of weeks). The interview begins around the 2:15:00 mark. :-) Love sharing the Dernier story!

You can buy Revenge of the Flying Carpet from your local Christian bookstore or direct from our website to encourage and inspire your 10-14s.

Big Book Party

I held a Big Book Party at my home on 2nd December. Thanks to those who came and made it such fun!

Dernier Publishing books We played games, like how many books can you carry on your head? (that was hilarious!) . . . can you find the buried book treasure on the map? . . . and how many words can you make from the letters of Revenge of the Flying Carpet, and of course sold some books! If you would like to hold a book party (and earn some commission), or come to the next book party at my house, let me know.How many Dernier books can you carry on your head?






Panic, Panic!

Christian Books_for_girls_10-14Still need presents? Or would love to give your young people’s class/group a last minute gift? As I said recently at the launch of Revenge of the Flying Carpet, all our books are published with two main aims – to be excellent reads, and to share something of the good news of Jesus.

If you need help choosing books for Christmas, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Always glad to help! And if you would love to give a gift of books but don’t have the resources, let me know – perhaps together we can find a way.

If you can’t get to your local Christian bookshop this Christmas, you can still buy books direct from our website. If you use the coupon code NEWSLETTER, 10% will be taken off your order, with our thanks for all your support over the last year! Valid only until this Friday (15th December) so don’t delay, order today!

Rwanda series booksAs well as individual books, you can buy a series of books together: the four Beech Bank Girls books, the two Treasure Mystery books, the three Rwanda stories or a big family bundle of 15 books. Your gift could bring so much love, life and joy this Christmas!

A Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, we pray for all the children who will read our books this Christmas. We don’t know who they all are, or know their circumstances and their hearts, but you do, and we know you love them. We pray that each one will find life, love and joy in abundance. Amen!

Janet WilsonAnd that’s all for this year! I wish you all a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. May your life be a blessing to everyone you come into contact with!


P.S. Here’s the link to our online catalogue if you’d like a quiet browse with a coffee. Feel free to choose your books then buy them elsewhere – we love it when people support bookshops. We’re just glad the books are getting out there into children’s hands. 🙂
