3 Updates as Christmas Traditions Series Prepares for Launch!




It is in the 80's and sunny here in Eastern Virginia, but today I'm thinking about Christmas. Am so excited about being in the Christmas Traditions Series with some wonderful authors: Cynthia Hickey, who headed this venture up, Gina Welborn, who invited me, Darlene Franklin, whom I've worked with before on novella submissions, Patty Smith Hall, with whom I participated in a serial romance published online, Jennifer AlLee, who I met through ACFW, and Niki Turner, who I'm getting to know now. Amber Stockton is also a recent addition to her group, and the banner, below, will be updated later to include her cover.
Christmas Traditions Series - Releasing September 2014
Here are some updates:
1) We are starting a Facebook Group called The Christmas Traditions Series Launch Group, which will be by invitation only. However, you can send me a private message on Facebook, or any of your author friends in this series, and request to be added. We're looking for reader/reviewers, prayer warriors, and influencers. Also, you can email me at Carriepromo@aol.com if God has put on your heart to support this effort. You may receive an invitation if you're someone God has put on our own hearts to invite, too. Every participant will receive a copy of my ebook and several of the others.

2) We will be having a blog hop on the authors' blogs and will be giving away a Kindle and a complete set of our ebooks, as well as other giveaways on each author's blog.

3) The first release planned is for Cynthia Hickey's, for September 1st, with other novellas releasing on September 15th and September 30th, also. The ebooks won't be available for pre-purchase. We'll be making announcements as each releases.


Giveaway: A copy of Carrie's novella "The Fruitcake Challenge" to one commenter.
