Scavenger Hunt Stop #23

Fall Scavenger HuntFollow the clues for a Chance to Win a Kindle Fire HDX or 30+ novels!
Welcome to the Autumn 2014 Scavenger Hunt. You have arrived at Stop #23. The hunt begins at noon (Mountain Time Zone) on October 17, 2014. You may have arrived here before the start which could mean all of the sites aren’t ready quite yet. Once the official start has begun, you should go to Stop #1 and then work your way through the sites, gathering clues and entering bonus giveaways, until you reach the final stop which will also be on the site of Robin Lee Hatcher.
The hunt ends on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at one minute before midnight (Mountain). That means you have all of the weekend to finish it, so take your time. Enjoy reading the exclusive content the authors have prepared for you. You will collect a CLUE IN RED at each stop. Write them down as you go. At the end of the hunt, you will enter the clues into a Rafflecopter form at this final stop #35. (The answer will make sense, even if you aren’t familiar with the quote.)
The hunt is open to international entries. The grand prize is a Kindle Fire HDX. Two runners-up will receive a new release from each of the participating authors. IN CASE YOU FIND A BROKEN LINK…  Robin Lee Hatcher has prepared a “cheat sheet” with direct links to each author’s post in case a site goes down or a link gets broken. We hope there will be no such issues, but just in case, please make note of the URL for the Participating Authors & Stops page so you can check back and be able to complete the hunt.

An Amish Second ChristmasAbout An Amish Second Christmas: My novella in this collection, A Gift for Anne Marie, is a sequel to the novella A Miracle for Miriam in An Amish Christmas. Miriam’s niece, Anne Marie, is looking forward to the upcoming Christmas holiday. She and Nathaniel have been best friends since they were kids. Now things are evolving…in ways everyone predicted long ago. But when her mother suddenly decides to remarry in another state, Anne Marie’s new chapter with Nathaniel looks doomed to end before it begins.

“Characters in each story are sweet, kind and caring. . . . Each author brings a separate writing style, creating a cozy holiday collection.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

Keeping Christmas Simple, by Kathleen Fuller

Although it’s only October, thoughts (and retail stores!) are already turning to Christmas. In my years of writing Amish fiction I’ve taken away a few tips for keeping life simple, including managing the Christmas season.

  1. Focus on the Reason for the Season. This saying has become cliché and for some, a bit trite, but it’s very true: Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas. Parties, plays, musicals, Christmas decorations, gifts—these are all fine, but Jesus is lost in the holiday shuffle, then we’ve missed the point of the holiday.
  2. Make family a priority. The Amish often celebrate Second Christmas—a time after Christmas day where extended family and friends get together for food, fun, and fellowship. Christmas itself is spent at home with close family. Whether you’re spending time with a few family members or as many relatives as possible, enjoy each moment together.
  3. It’s the thought that counts. According to media advertising, the pressure is on to give the best, and often most expensive, gifts. But sometimes the smallest token or gesture can mean more than the highest priced present.

Whatever your plans are for Christmas, make sure it’s a time of celebrating faith, family, and friends. Bask in the joy of the season. Merry Christmas!
