A contest for The Sleeping Night

In the brave new world of publishing, few things are as valuable as the reader reviews that are posted on book and social media sites.  That is a very good thing because it puts readers–not critics or the like–front and center in the process of selecting which books catch the attention of a lot of people.  To that end, we are holding a contest to help generate interest in The Sleeping Night.



“A beautiful telling of forbidden romance . . . THE SLEEPING NIGHT is a refined, romantic tale. I imagine if Jane Austen wrote novels today, her stories would read a lot like Barbara Samuel’s.”



Barbara Samuel is celebrating the release of The Sleeping Night with a heartfelt giveaway to one lucky reader who helps spread the word about the book to others. This lovely prize package will include a collection of recipes – including Angel Corey’s pineapple upside down cake, a cast iron skillet, an assortment of books from Barbara Samuel (Barbara O’Neal) and a few other surprises tossed in for fun.

To enter, help Barbara get the word out about this beautiful book. You can do this by posting about it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or pinning the cover on Pinterest. Write a review of the book and post it to Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, GoodReads, Books a Million or any other online bookstore (each review counts as 2 entries!) or make the cover of The Sleeping Night your avatar online. You are welcome to blog about the book or feature it as the book selection for your book club.

As a special bonus, until July 13th, Belle Books is offering a FREE pdf version of the ebook version to select reviewers!
