Bestselling novelist Wm.¬†Paul Young has inked a deal with Hachette Book Group for his next, as-yet-untitled novel, “a compelling story that touches deeply felt emotions and needs, and questions of the heart.”

Young had this statement in the release: “We have had quite the adventure this last couple of years and I look forward with anticipation to what the future holds.¬† The folks at Hachette are creative and passionate about the process and I am grateful for the integrity and support I have found at every level of this company.”

Young is best known for his hit Christian title The Shack. He originally wrote the book for his six children. It has since spawned a live stage show called “Stories from the Shack” and played in Seattle.
