One of the neatest things this year has been the conception of the Christian Historical Fiction Community! now lovingly found at www.ChristianHistoricalFiction.com How exciting! This was something I worked on from my heart. True it is not very active, but it is not meant to just provide things from me. This is meant to be a place to have readers and authors sharing and finding some great things in the newest about Christian Historical Fiction so you always having something to read and something else to thirst for! If you are interested in participating in any way, just ask!
This past year I hosted the Christian Historical Fiction Reading Challenge and although a little confusing to start on a blogspot, move to a ning and then www.ChristianHistoricalFiction.com (aka chf.creativemadnessmama.com) it’s here and we had a pretty good turn out on participation. In the future if we have more people interested, I’m definitely up for giveaways… *hint tell your friends!*
I’m sure I’ll talk about CHF from time to time as it is my genre, but to keep up with book release announcements and the like, stay tuned at the CHF main page. Also keep up to date with some of your favorite authors and book lovers.
Last year with 33 participants signed up we had more than 130 reviews submitted and I know there are more of you out there! Get a good start this year and sign up to participate here… I don’t have a button yet… but I’m open to suggestions. Otherwise I’ll get one together soon in the next few weeks with html. We now have a gorgeous button thanks to Molly of Book Review by Molly.
Here are the details about the CHF Reading Challenge.
