Take a Breather on September 28th, 5-7 pm (PST)!

Join me for my Facebook Party for Amish Peace and get a little Amish wisdom for modern, busy lives!

Take a look around you. Everyone is rushing around with endless to-do lists and back-to-back deadlines, barely able to catch a breath.

Everyone, that is, except the Amish.

Living on the outskirts of modernity, the Amish are icons for a simpler life and a slower pace. It’s this allure—something of a sanctuary, suspended in time—that draws millions of tourists to travel to Amish country every year.

And now I’m inviting YOU to come bring your overworked, overextended self and attend a fun Facebook Launch Party for Amish Peace! I know you’re busy (and tired) so I’m bringing the festivities to you! So grab your comfiest chair and slip away from that long To-Do list and join me for a two hour Amish Peace Party.

I’m going to be sharing some of the Amish wisdom I gleaned while researching and living with the Amish! Not only that, but I’ll also be hosting a fun Fact or Fiction Contest (how well do you really know the Amish?), giving away an incredible Amish Gift Basket filled with terrific Amish-made items directly out of stories in Amish Peace, and advanced copies of The Choice (exciting news – the first book in the my new Amish fiction series)!

I’ll also be answering questions, and getting to know YOU! I’d be honored to have you as my guest – and to prove it I’ll be giving away books and prizes throughout the party!

Let’s connect…in an admittedly non-Amish way…on Facebook, September 28th from 5-7pm (PST)! (Below is a pix of an Amish phone shanty. A number of Amish families on the same street will share one phone.)

My Facebook account name is: Suzanne Woods Fisher.
My twitter name is: suzannewfisher

Here is the schedule of events:

5:00 pm — A Story behind the story – I’ll share why I wanted to write this book!
5:00-5:30 — Q&A time (ask me questions!)
5:30 — first trivia contest –Fact or Fiction? How much do you really know about the Amish? Winner announced asap!
5:45-6:15 — Q&A time (more questions, please!)
6:15 — A bit about the new series, “Lancaster County Secrets” and the book, The Choice.
6:30 — 6:45 Q&A time (more questions, please!)
6:45 — second trivia contest (winner announced asap) Fact or Fiction?
6:45-7:00 — Last Q&A time & wrap up

There’s a saying among the Amish: “Du kannscht ken Laerning griege imme Saerigachtul.” It means, “You can’t get no learnin’ in an easy chair.”

Well, on September 28th, maybe we can! So mark your calendar and tell your friends. Hope to see you there!

    I will take a breather on Sept 28th! Amish Peace came in the mail from amazon yesterday, I started the first chapter and I'm glued. There's so much to learn from their lives. I'm taking notes while I read!
