Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt: Stop 21
Welcome to the 2013 Summer Scavenger Hunt! This hunt has 32 stops and runs 5/17-5/19/13, beginning at noon Mountain Daylight Time on Friday, May 17th. You can make the loop, reading unique content from 31 different authors, and if you complete the loop, and fill out the Rafflecopter form at Stop #32, you’ll be in the running for an iPad Mini (loaded with all our books), or one of two runner-up prizes–all 31 of our new releases in paperback. In addition, some authors are offering additional prizes, so be sure to read each post thoroughly to be in the running for all that are available. The contest is open internationally.
If you’ve JUST discovered the hunt, I recommend you begin at the beginning, Stop #1, found at LisaBergren.com. But you can also begin here, and keep on rolling. Just be aware that you have to have the COMPLETED phrase in order, which you construct gathering the clue at each stop, within 24 hours of email notification from Lisa Bergren that you won. If Lisa doesn’t hear back from you with the correct phrase within the time limit, she will move on to the next winner Rafflecopter draws.
Ready? Here we go!
ROBIN LEE HATCHER
I am so pleased to introduce the amazing Robin Lee Hatcher. She’s a prolific, multi award-winning author, but even more importantly she’s a devoted follower of Christ and an inspiration to her readers and other authors too (including myself). I am truly honored to host her this weekend.
Robin is known for her heartwarming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. She discovered her vocation after many years of reading everything she could put her hands on, including the backs of cereal boxes and ketchup bottles. Winner of the Christy, the RITA, the Carol, the Inspirational Reader’s Choice, and many other awards, Robin is also a recipient of the prestigious RWA Lifetime Achievement Award. She is the author of nearly 70 novels.
Robin enjoys being with her family, spending time in the beautiful Idaho outdoors, reading books that make her cry, and watching romantic movies. Her main hobby (when time allows) is knitting, and she has a special love for making prayer shawls. A mother and grandmother, Robin and her husband make their home on the outskirts of Boise, sharing it with Poppet, the high-maintenance Papillon, and Princess Pinky, the DC (demon cat).
Robin’s latest story is about a mail-order bride, and she’s come up with a fun time-travel twist for this post. The following is in Robin’s own words…
I loved writing a novella about a mail-order bride in 1870 (A Bride for All Seasons, June 2013), but I would have a tough time being one. I’m a thoroughly modern Millie. I preferred getting to know my man and fall in love with him before we said our “I do’s.” But for centuries, women have married for many other reasons than love. Arranged marriages were the norm until quite recently.
Well, let’s pretend I’m single and that traveling back in time is a possibility. My groom awaits me in the 1870’s West. What ten things would I pack?
1) My Bible (I’m thinking I’ll need direction)
2) Penicillin (I’m a practical girl)
3) Neosporin (still practical)
4) Bandaids (still practical)
5) Comfy undies (they are not getting me into a corset)
6) A flashlight with batteries (I don’t want to get lost on the way to the outhouse)
7) My favorite lotion in a giant economy size (dry skin isn’t pretty)
8) Poppet, my dog (I might need her company; she loves me)
9) A box of my favorite gel pens (just because)
10) 24 rolls of toilet paper from Costco (self-explanatory)
What would you take if you were headed back to 1870 to marry someone you’d never met? I’d love to know.
