TONIGHT at TBCN for a Big Contest. We will be having an interactive contest where members will be guessing letters and my husband Fred will be filling in the blanks until the phrase is guessed. No you can't buy vowels from Vanna White but you can JOIN The Book Club Network to participate in the contest. The winner will receive a $50.00 gift certificate to Life Way Christian Book Store.

The reason for the contest? Tonight wee are celebrating the New Release of WORDS by GINNY YTRRUP!

Everyone is included and we will mail the gift certificate anywhere, it's NOT LIMITED to the USA. (The certificate can be used in the store and on-line) The other contests we've had at TBCN have been between the book clubs last month was to spread the word about TBCN. Contestants were also asked to visit author book club pages and encourage them.

Recently our Congratulations went to Faith in Fiction book club on winning the grand prize, which included twenty-five copies of Deadly Ties by Vicki Hinze and twenty-five copies of Carmel by the Sea Sandi Bricker. Sandi even threw in a few copies of Always the Baker, Never the Bride for this winning team. Faith in Fiction book club, led by Brandi Fitzpatrick, went all out in spreading the word about TBCN, encouraging other book clubs and authors at the network. Brandi Fitzpatrick even held book club discussions on her book club page, resulting in Dan Walsh, Gina Holmes, and Mindy Starns Clark joining TBCN to participate. Faith in Fiction was one happy book club!

Brandi was thankful for the contest and the network and said this to her team: “I’ve got some amazing news to start this New Year off right. First . . . drumroll, please . . . we won The Book Club Network contest! Thanks to all of you that pulled together to help us win the contest. I have some more good news! Yesterday our boxes of books arrived . . . if you know me, you know I was in heaven. All those books . . . pure bliss!”

I love how Brandi has held the book club meetings online so that everyone at the network can benefit from this experience and become familiar with new authors and their books. Brandi’s group qualified for the next round of the contest and the opportunity to participate in the “secret mission,” which is the Just Desserts contest described below, inspired by the secret missions in Deadly Ties.

Now this is why we are here: to get the word out about great books, connect book clubs with authors and have lots of “book fun” in giveaways and contests! This month The Book Club Network has more contests for the readers at the site. We’ve had two contests for book clubs as a whole, now we have a few contests that are open to the public for the individual readers.

The JUST DESSERTS CONTEST is looking for recipes! This contest is not limited to the members of TBCN. Anyone who has a great dessert recipe can enter it simply by e-mailing it to Three dessert recipes will be chosen for Brandi and the Faith in Fiction book club to judge. They will have a “cook-off” in February when they will make and taste the final recipe selections in the contest to pick the winner. Sounds like Brandi and her team will have some fun times ahead!

The Book Club Network is accepting your best dessert recipes between January 1 and February 11, and the person entering the winning recipe will receive a $100 gift card to a high-end cooking store. The winner will also receive a copy of  Deadly Ties by Vicki Hinze and Always the Baker, Never the Bride by Sandi Bricker! We want to thank Vicki Hinze for sponsoring this contest and Sandi Bricker for donating a copy of Always the Baker, Never the Bride! 

The TOUCHED BY A MIRACLE CONTEST is looking for stories about miracles that happened in your life, miracles that changed the course of your life forever! Just e-mail with your story. The submissions will not be published without permission and approval of the final copy. The best entry will get People of the Book by Kathi Macias, and we will donate $100 to the winner’s favorite 501(c)(3) ministry. Thanks to Kathi Macias for sponsoring this contest.
