"Jon Sweeney at Paraclete took world rights directly from author Roger Hutchison (The Very Best Day) to Faces: A Love Story. The picture book for readers of all ages features illustrations of diverse people, and it’s slated for publication in January 2021. "We need reminders of our diversity and the stories we tell through colors, shapes, scars, ages, and expressions, now more than ever as we live in quarantine," says Sweeney. "And when life returns to normal, we think people will cherish these faces more than they ever did before." - Publishers Weekly

Church Publishing, Inc. has announced that El Mejor Día: El Camino del Amor para Niños (The Very Best Day: The Way of Love for Children) will be released in January 2021.

Roger is pleased to announce that he is now a featured author with Writing for Your Life. Writing for Your Life offers in-person and online writing conferences featuring leading spiritual writers and publishing industry experts.
