Again, thanks for joining in the fun, everyone!

Hello, readers!

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.

Daylight

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.

  1. fyi, I used the hash tag in the comments, and the @BethanyHouse also in the comments of the photo. I was not able to tag the photo, because B.H. is not a friend, but rather a publishing group. I did however tag Jen Turano whose books I photographed since we are FB friends! And, I made the photo Public 🙂 Hopefully this will suffice.

  2. I don’t read hard cover books… I only read ebooks (I have 4 of them and a kindle tablet) so it is pretty hard to take a picture with it. I will share this post and hopefully that will enter me. I read Love Never Fails by Jeanette Oake.

    • Awww. Thanks Pauline. Hopefully, if you have not already, you will give Jen Turano a try. She has 4 out so far + 1 eNovella that goes w/the series (and that one is free). She is so witty! Blessings a cup of tea to you!
