Hi from Australia! I’m delighted to have the opportunity to host our Sunday Edition posts in February. Today is my debut Sunday post and, when I first looked at the calendar dates, I had to think for a moment about why February 4 was a significant date. No, it’s not a family birthday I’d forgotten (my nephew’s birthday was a few days ago, and I did remember to call and wish him a happy birthday).
On the fourth of February in 2014 my debut book, Falling for the Farmer, was released. Yes, there’s lots of f-word alliteration in that sentence for all the right reasons!
I suspect most authors could tell you the date their debut book released. It’s a fun milestone to remember, and authors like celebrating their ‘book birthdays.’
We launched our Inspy Romance blog four years ago in February 2014. Next Sunday I’ll have more information to share on our fabulous giveaways for our annual Inspy Romance Birthday Bash starting on Valentine’s Day – February 14.
Our first big announcement for this week… Inspy Romance now has its own Facebook Group linked to our Facebook Page – Christian Romance Reader Gathering.
Christian Romance Reader Gathering is our new place on Facebook for avid contemporary Christian romance (CCR) readers to visit and chat about the CCR books we all enjoy reading.
Please check out our new reader group, and remember to answer the three questions when you submit your request to join.
Here’s the link to join the group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/345374929204526/
