New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Ehman
Signs New Book Contract with Zondervan

Two Additional Titles Added to Ehman’s Publishing Schedule

Grand Rapids, Mich., June 16, 2016 — New York Times bestselling author and Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker Karen Ehman has signed a new two-book contract with Zondervan. In addition to her two upcoming releases Listen, Love, Repeat (Nov. 2016) and Zip It (Feb. 2017) Ehman has two additional titles slated with Zondervan for February of 2018 and August of 2019. The two new books were acquired by Sandra Vander Zicht, associate publisher & executive editor of Zondervan, and Ehman’s publishing manager is Meredith Brock. 

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Karen on two new books,” said Vander Zicht.  “Karen gets better and better with each book.  Her warm conversational style and lively sense of humor paired with her insightful scriptural commentary can’t help but resonate with women.” 

Listen, Love, Repeat: Other-Centered Living in a Self-Centered World provides encouragement and creative, but doable ideas to effectively reach out to others with planned and random acts of kindness. A companion teaching DVD and study guide will release simultaneously with the trade book. 

Zip It: The Keep It Shut 40-Day Challenge empowers readers to put into action the advice and commands of Scripture concerning the tongue. Because there are more than 3,500 verses in the Bible that relate to our words and our silence, Keep It Shut only scratched the surface. Ehman now takes a deeper look and offers practical how-to’s that will inspire readers to use their words to build, bless, encourage, and praise.  

Karen Ehman is the author of 10 books including the New York Times bestseller Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It and When to Say Nothing at All and LET. IT. GO.: How to Stop Running the Show & Start Walking in Faith. She is also a writer and speaker for Proverbs 31 Ministries and a writer for Encouragement For Today online devotions. Ehman has been a guest on several radio and TV programs, including Moody Midday Connection, FamilyLife, Focus on the Family, The 700 Club and At Home Live. She lives in central Michigan with her husband and three children.
