Howard Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will release Jimmy Wayne’s book Paper Angels, on November 1st, 2011.  The release marks the recording artist’s debut as an author, and is a work of fiction inspired by Jimmy’s own childhood as a recipient of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. Paper Angels was written with best-selling author Travis Thrasher.

“When my sister and I were kids, we were represented by two of those little paper angels hanging on the Salvation Army Christmas tree,” Jimmy said. “Our family was going through a really tough time, and had it not been for the Salvation Army and the people who selected our paper angels, we wouldn’t have had a Christmas. I have never forgotten that and to this day I am still grateful for the generous hearts who take care of these kids at Christmas.”

Sounds like a great book for the holidays, be sure to pick yourself up a copy – or two (would make a great gift)!
