Welcome to my 2019 Historical Christian Romance Giveaway!
In case you haven’t already heard, I have recently signed my very first publishing contract!!! Specifically, I have signed a three-book publishing contract with Wild Heart Books! Woohoo! (You can learn more about my books by becoming a Kathleen’s Readers’ Club Member!)
To celebrate this very exciting milestone, I’m giving away 5 historical Christian romance novels by 5 of my favorite authors! If you enjoy these novels, you’re likely to enjoy my stories as well, so I hope you’ll join me on this journey toward publication and be among the first to know when each book released!
Don’t forget to share this exciting news with your friends!
So, these Terms & Conditions have been part of the Rafflecopter widget from before the giveaway began, but since I couldn’t figure out where you all would actually be able to see it, I figured wherever it was was too hidden. So, here they are without the scavenger hunt:
