Remember When . . . The Challenge Was On!

I have less than a month until The Lost Heiress must be turned into my editor at Bethany House. And though I'm distracted with moving, I'm also excited. Especially as my hubby reads the manuscript and says lovely things like "When did you get so good at nuance?" and "You really pulled off making her seem French this time around." and "You know, the crazy thing is that I don't feel like I've read this before." (even though he's read about three different versions of it. Ahh... ;-)

So as I work on my final round of pre-turning-it-in edits, giving extraordinary amounts of attention to every...single...line, I find myself occasionally going back to my Pinterest board for the book for a little inspiration.

And I realize I don't have nearly enough fabulous fashion pictured there. ;-) I mean, there are quite a few...but not enough. Never enough!

Hence the challenge. You need a distraction, right? Well here you go. Spend a few minutes looking up Edwardian fashion for me, and you could win books, books, and more books!

Here's how it works.

1.) Search for Edwardian gowns/dresses, between 1910 and 1913
2.) Go the Facebook events page (click here) and post your link
3.) Enter the Rafflecopter giveaway for a chance to win a stack o' books!

What books, you ask? Fabulous question. See, as I was stacking my oh-so-beautiful shelves on Monday...
...I discovered that I somehow ended up with duplicates of quite a few amazing books. So rather than take up precious space on my shelves, I'm giving away the lot! There will be ONE WINNER (because I can barely get one box into the mail, much less 8) of this lot, which includes:

A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman
Heart's Safe Passage by Laure Alice Eakes
A Necessary Deception by Laurie Alice Eakes
The Master's Wall by Sandi Rog
To Die For by Sandra Byrd
The Blue Enchantress by MaryLu Tyndall
Surrender the Dawn by MaryLu Tyndall

So get searching, have fun, share (you can do this once a day!) for the next week, and maybe you'll win!

    1. If you want to just share the link here or on my FB profile, I'll copy it to the event for you!

  2. Me, too, Roseanna. Gown must be copyrighted photo. Kathleen ~ Lane Hill House

  3. I am amazed that with my extensive library, I have none of the books listed...this would be an amazing win for me!!!

  4. I think I got an entry in for every day....the reason I didn't click on Monday is because I think I entered on Rafflecopter on Monday before you put it up so we could do day by day....This has been so much fun....Thank you!!!!
