Diane U (djuseless) | 1411 comments OMG, I just saw that we have 288 members to our wonderful group. I would like to start a giveaway here when we do. I have a copy of The Mercy by Beverly Lewis, the final book of the Rose trilogy, that I would like to give to a member of this group.

How's that sound? I'll let you know more details once we hit 300 members.

Rachel Brand Diane, I've been watching the numbers climb too! Looking forward to further details :)

That would be awesome! We'll have to keep talking our group up & inviting on those Facebook chat parties and to the Amish Literature Fans there.


message 4: by Camille (new)

Camille (camlovesraptors) | 802 comments I remember joining just over a year ago, and we had what, less than 50 members? I love how lively and active this group is! I love getting up in the morning because I get excited to check this group. I'm a nerd, but I'm ok with that. :)


message 5: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Brand Camille, I'm totally the same! Whoever it's in the room with me is always like, "What are you typing so much for? Are you writing your novel?" and I'm like, "Um, nope, just checking in with my book group..." :)

Wonder if some Amish writers would donate a book for the drawing? That would be so cool and maybe get some more people to join.


message 9: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (misscalico) | 128 comments Wish I could rejoin! :) 300 members... I truly had no idea that so many people had an interest in Amish fiction!


message 10: by Camille (new)

Camille (camlovesraptors) | 802 comments I think, Sarah, as more writers of Amish fiction gain prominence people are realizing there is a type of Amish fiction for most everyone. I mean there's Vampire Amish fiction, YA Amish fiction, Children's Amish fiction, mystery Amish fiction, romantic Amish fiction, and so much more!


message 11: by Diane U (new)

Diane U (djuseless) | 1411 comments Great idea Lorie!!!

Would any Amish authors like to join in on this giveaway at 300 members? If so, please PM me and I will share the details of the drawing with you.

Marta Perry (martaperry) | 61 comments Hi, Diane,
I'd be happy to give away a signed copy of Vanish in Plain Sight, the second book in the Amish suspense series. Just let me know when and where to send it.

I'm delighted to see the group growing so!

Marta Perry

Marta, thanks so much! It is exciting to see our group growing. I remember when one of your LIS novels was our first group reads back in 2010 :)

Diane, if you want to message any of our authors and ask them if they want to join in with our giveaway in some manner then go ahead! I'll let you orchestrate this event. I'm intrigued to see what you're planning to do! PM me if you have any more ideas to celebrate 300 members?
