Reader's Choice - Retro-Reads

GIVEAWAY


What's a Retro Read you ask? Any Christian Fiction novel published in 2017 or earlier. Here's your chance to catch the one that got away! Just make sure it's still in print...or in ebook format if you're okay with that. To be entered in the draw just leave a comment (or 3) below, including title(s) of the book(s) you would like to win.

How does it work?

Easy peasy! Make recommendations in the comment section each day and if you win, you win the book you suggested.

BUT YOU GOTTA FOLLOW THE RULES

Publication dates must be 2017 or earlier
Christian Fiction only please!
You can offer up to 3 suggestions a day
BUT
they need to be made in
three separate comments
(easier for me to tally)
No email entries this week
(too hard to keep track of
due to the # of responses)
NEW -- entrants must submit their own selections
(not piggyback on somebody else's login) -- NEW
Open to International Readers
I'm all about spreading the good news about
Christian Fiction all over the globe!!!

It's helpful to include your email (using AT and DOT instead of @ and . to protect yourself from spammers) but you only need to add it to one comment (per day) If you choose not to include your email, it will be up to you to contact me with your mailing info if you are a winner.

Draw will be held and winner announced on
Sunday March 25 2018

    2. I would definitely recommend checking out her different series (Paige Alder, Maya Davis, Lauren Holbrook) when you are looking for a fun, lighthearted Christian romance.

      Delete
    3. Thanks, Melissa. I definitely will. Lighthearted Christian romance sounds just the ticket for summer reading.
