True Meaning of Christmas at Heart of First Duck Commander® Fiction Release

Carol Stream, Ill.—Tyndale House Publishers (@tyndalehouse) announces the October release of A Robertson Family Christmas, a fiction offering from the Duck Commander® brand. In this title, Duck Commander® and the  Robertson family are partnering with Tyndale House to bring their promise of faith, family, and fun to a Christmas story for adult fiction readers.

A Robertson Family Christmas (ISBN: 978-1-4143-9820-4/$19.99/October

2014) is a holiday novella about a troubled young man who is surprised to win a contest giving him the opportunity to join the Robertson family for Christmas. Although he’s uninitiated and initially resistant to the “Robertson holiday way,” he ultimately finds hope, love, and acceptance in their faith-filled environment. Miss Kay Robertson has teamed with Travis Thrasher (@travisthrasher) to bring this heartwarming and humorous story to life.

“When writing this novella,” Miss Kay says, “I knew I had to include a few of my favorite things: family, home-grown Louisiana cooking, and my Lord and Savior.” It is her hope to offer a meaningful snapshot of a faith-filled family Christmas. She offers, “While we love to have fun, especially around the holidays, we always keep our focus on the true meaning of Christmas.”

Tyndale associate publisher Karen Watson says, “We believe that fiction is the perfect addition to the Duck Commander® brand. Tyndale is thrilled to be able to bring our experience in fiction to this project.” She adds, “A Robertson Family Christmas provides a fun sneak peek at the softer side of this beloved cast of true characters.”
