Thank you so much, readers, for participating in the #FallBackInTime event! Hopefully we’ll get many more readers hooked on inspirational fiction because of the books you shared. And here are the winners, chosen randomly:
Winners, please email me, Amy, at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address so I can send you your book. (And if you already have the book I mentioned and would like to switch, let me know that too.)
Again, thanks for joining in the fun, everyone!
Daylight Savings Time has always struck me as being a strange event. There is one hour of your life that isn’t marked on any schedule or planner or clock. It just quietly sneaks up on you—spring forward, fall back.
Since we’re all readers here, I don’t think you’ll need to much to motivate you to use that extra hour to spend with a new book. But just in case you do, let me tell you about a fun event that’s happening on November 1, starting at 10 AM Central: the Fall Back in Time social media blitz.
The Historical Romance Network is hosting a social media event to fill the Internet with images of people reading historical romances. Starting at 10 AM CST on November 1 (in honor of Daylight Savings), they want people to take pictures of themselves with a historical fiction book and post them on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram with the hashtag #FallBackinTime.
This is an event for all types of historical romance, but we would love it if Christian fiction was represented in this event. Think of it as giving a book recommendation to hundreds of readers who might never visit the inspirational section of a bookstore. And besides that…we’ll be hosting a giveaway as well! Here’s your chance to join in the fun and win free books.
Step One: Take a picture of yourself with a recent Bethany House historical fiction novel. (Check the spine for our logo if you’re not sure!)
Step Two: Post the picture on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #FallBackinTime AND tag Bethany House in the picture (on Facebook, this means typing @Bethany House and selecting our page from the dropdown menu; on Twitter, it means adding @bethany_house to your tweet). We’ll search through these to choose our winners at random.
Step Three: Come back to this blog post on Monday, November 3 at 9 AM Central to see who won! We’ll be giving away our historical fiction releases from October to four winners—To Everything a Season by Lauraine Snelling, Keepers of the Covenant by Lynn Austin, The Brickmaker’s Bride by Judith Miller, and A Matter of Heart by Tracie Peterson.
Looking forward to seeing some historical fiction readers out there!
