There’s so much going on with this event, we want to summarize the key points for you. Here is what you want to do:

  • Every weekday a new author will be featured on the 2018 Indie Historical Romance Bash event page. At the start of every hour, a new post will go live. All posts, for each author, will be numbered. You’ll find the author schedule and their number of posts (so you can make sure you find them all!) under the event description. You’ll want to find all these posts (even if you come in late to the party) to learn more about each featured author, their books, and to enter to win their individual prizes!
  • Every day, on this giveaway page, new ways to enter to win the grand prizes (a $250 Amazon gift card and five $50 gift cards) unlocks. Come to this page every day to earn more chances to win. One entry is a limited time only, so you’ll want to come do that one every morning before it disappears!
  • Looking for EVEN more chances to win? We know there’s no way you can spend the next 30 days with these fabulous authors and not pick up one of their books. If you are gifted a book (ask your friends and family for books for holiday gifts), or purchase one of the 23 participating authors’ books, OR download one of their free books (check their Amazon pages for permafree and sale books), you can enter the book you purchased or downloaded here for a bonus entry per book you enter. Bookmark this page and when you grab a new, great read, fill out this form to claim your bonus entry. *No proof of purchase is necessary to win the grand prizes.

And stay tuned for the upcoming 2018 Indie Historical Romance Bash Reading Challenge, with more ways to earn entries into the giveaway, kicking off next week – make sure you’re subscribed to the event mailing list so you’ll know as soon as the challenge starts!
