From the authors who brought you the Hope Chronicles
May 13th-17th, 2013
What it is:
A blog hop and giveaway featuring five letters, each centering on trust in God, written by our heroines. Mark your calenders for the week of May 13th-17th, when we will be posting the letters on our blogs. The event will begin on May 13th, 2013, with the first heroine’s letter.
How you can participate:
Follow the letters from day to day and leave a comment on each blog to be qualified to win that heroine’s prize ( we will provide the links on this page here, as well as on each blog post so you can hop from blog to blog and meet each heroine and be entered to win her prize bundle.)
In the meantime, we’d love to share our Pinterest board with you, where you can find little snippets of encouragement, as well as sneak peeks at the project:

As five historical fiction authors that span a century of settings and every stage of publication, the common thread that ties us together is our desire to offer hope from the Master Author, our Lord and Savior. Our goal is to join together as storytellers and to connect with each other and our readers in a meaningful way through the Trust Chronicles event.
