Christian Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

It’s a new year coming soon, and a new opportunity to participate in a challenge for reading Christian Historical Fiction. I know this year is going to be awesome! The more participants we have, the more giveaways there will be. You can also sign up and participate through the Goodreads group as well if you’d like. (I love it because of the widget that tells me just how many books I’ve read! And it’s automatic to counting a book if it’s found on the Christian Historical Fiction shelf.) Now here’s for the fun… Every month, a new post will be created here on www.ChristianHistoricalFiction.com with an opportunity to participate. (Guests are invited to post as well, just ask!) Everyone can participate, even those who do not have a blog or a Goodreads membership (just use the comments section to add your book title and thoughts if you desire). Add the link(s). . .

Announcing the 2013 Christian Historical Fiction Reading Challenge!

Okay… I’m a total slacker. Well, not exactly true, but it’s been chaos trying to get this challenge up and running and I just kept putting it off. But, no more! This year I’m putting the challenge through Goodreads. If you do not have a Goodreads account that’s okay, you can just comment here on this post and still participate. But, Goodreads is amazing and free and a fabulous way to share books and your opinions with others!

2nd in a Series 2011 Challenge

Again as I said for the 1st in a Series Challenge… I am not really sure what happened, but at the beginning of this year I missed out on signing up for challenges, and I have to admit that I have missed them this year. As well as the community that comes with the participation. I guess it was because I was in the first trimester of pregnancy with OrangeBlossom. Either way, I am completely late, but willing to participate now… Guidelines for the 2nds Challenge 2011   1. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate. If you’re not a blogger, leave your information in the comments. 2. There are four levels to choose from in this challenge: Just a spoonful – Read 3 books that are 2nd in a series or the second time you’ve read the author. A few more bites – Read 6 books. . .

Christian Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2011

So this year has been a bust. I admit it. We went from being on Blogger, to having an incredible and active Ning. To having a BuddyPress on WordPress and now to a side page of Creative Madness Mama located at www.ChristianHistoricalFiction.com. Now it’s true that we do have a forum there, as well as a forum in the goodreads group. There is a book trailers page and everything, but it’s just no where near as active as the Ning. Moving around just lost people and I hate that. I hope in the future we can get a community atmosphere back! Now… the challenge is to have read 24 books in the 12 months of 2011. I know most of you are past that, and haven’t been keeping a list. But, let me say this. If more than 25 people participate… then I will give away a bushel of books!. . .

Link Up Missing – Irritated Me

So I’m a little bit peeved. I went to add another review to our 2011 CHF Challenge and the links were gone. Apparently Linky Tools has gone paid subscription only. As much as their website says that it was an announced decision, the disappearing act is the first I know of it! I never got one email letting me know anything about this. I’m mad. Luckily, the links do still appear to be available for a limited time so I can transfer them to something else. But what do I use? I was so excited about the thumbnail link up with the books. Does anyone have any suggestions for link ups? I guess we can just put them in comments for now, but that is so not cool. I’m sorry this happened and I’m really sorry I didn’t know about it sooner. 🙁 – Margaret

Christian Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

*Originally posted at www.CreativeMadnessMama.com* 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. . .
