Who we are:

CatholicFiction.net is a project of Tuscany Press, a dedicated publisher of Catholic Fiction and sponsor of the Tuscany Prize for Catholic Fiction.  The site is independent editorially and manned on a volunteer basis. Teacher and editor Michelle Tholen and journalist Joseph O'Brien are the new Co-editors of CatholicFiction.net. We have a wonderful and growing list of volunteer reviewers, some of whom are professional writers, struggling writers, academics, editors, bloggers or would be writers but all of whom love Catholic Fiction books.

Please consider joining us as a volunteer Reviewer.

Our Mission:

To engage the Catholic community in a Catholic literary revival.

The site’s purpose is to promote Contemporary Catholic Fiction and their authors, celebrate the rich heritage of Catholic Fiction and gifted storytelling we have historically enjoyed in the Catholic community, and to pass on our humble knowledge of Classic Catholic Fiction.

The 21st century, we believe, is bursting with opportunities and ripe for a new Catholic literary revival.

Our Work:

On CatholicFiction.net, we post Catholic Fiction Book Reviews on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.   We look at Catholic fiction in every genre, both contemporary and classic, literary and popular. We occasionally review (from a Catholic’s point of view) novels which can in no way be considered Catholic, yet which deal with themes of interest to Catholics. In addition, we want to encourage writers of Catholic fiction to write, write well and get published.  We review books on the craft of writing, and related books that we believe are good resources for writers of Catholic fiction.

The Book reviews are organized by Contemporary, Classic and Self-published category, and title, author and genre index to make finding reviews as easy as possible.
