A New Year & A New Contest!


Happy New Year!

I always enjoy turning the calendar to January–feels like a fresh wind fills the sails. I hope you feel a similar excitement for all 2014 holds for you.

Thanks to your pre-orders of The Calling, I just sent off a very big check to Mother William’s soup kitchen! As a small way to show my appreciation for your generous support and to celebrate the New Year, I’m running a “Welcome 2014” Barnes & Noble contest! Get your camera and head to a Barnes & Noble near you for a chance to win a $50 B&N gift card. Here are the different way you can enter:

  1. Snap a picture of one of my books on the shelf at a Barnes and Noble and email me the picture
  2. Purchase a copy from Barnes & Noble and let me know
  3. No camera? No problem. Leave a comment below saying what Barnes & Noble you visited, the date, and what books of mine they had in stock and you will be entered to win

I’ll announce the winner on my blog on January 21st!

P.S. I can’t wait for Book Tour ’14! Here’s the updated book tour to celebrate The Calling‘s release on January 14th. I’m getting excited to meet everybody!

About Suzanne

Suzanne Woods Fisher writes bestselling, award winning fiction and non-fiction books about the Old Order Amish for Revell Books. Her interest in the Plain People began with her Old Order German Baptist grandfather, raised in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne's app, Amish Wisdom, delivers a daily Amish proverb to your phone or iPad. She writes a bi-monthly column for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine. She lives with her family in California and raises puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To Suzanne's way of thinking, you can't take life too seriously when a puppy is running through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.

  11. Martha Peace says:

    I would love to win

  12. Suzanne Dawson says:

    I went to B&N and only found 2 of your books there. However, when I went to WalMart they had a lot of your books, so bought one. I did take a picture at B&N on my phone, but don’t know how to get it into your website.

  13. Renee says:

    My daughter & I went on a “scavenger hunt” at the Barnes & Noble on Winchester Rd in Temecula, CA. We found 1 copy of “The Haven.” Supposedly, “The Letters” was in stock, but we looked all over the Christian Fiction section and could not find it.

  14. John says:

    There’s one copy of “The Haven” at Barnes & Noble in Temecula, CA.

  15. Shannon Bereza says:

    The Barnes and Noble in Green Bay, WI has several of your books. They have The Inn at Eagle Hill series (The Letters and The Calling) and The Stoney Ridge Seasons series (The Keeper, The Haven, and The Lesson). I didn’t see any of the children’s books there because a book store is not always the easiest place to wander around in when I have twin 4 year olds and an 8 year old in tow. But I plan to check out your children’s books and hopefully order them online. My niece is a huge reader and she has a birthday coming up so I know just what I am getting her – The Lily Lapp series.

    • Shannon Bereza says:

      I forgot to say that it was today that I went.

    • Shannon Bereza says:

      Also, I just bought The Waiting. I bought it from Amazon though since I do most of my reading on my phone when I’m waiting in some line or another or if I am at one of my five kids athletic events. I read the first book in this series after my mom recommended it and I haven’t had time to start the second one.

  16. sharon says:

    Wonderful prize which would be great appreciated and enjoyed.

  17. Sandi Ansell says:

    I visited our Barnes and Noble store in St. George, Utah and checked to see which books of yours they carried. They have on the shelf several. The one that looked great to me were these. 1.Copper Fire. 2. For the Love of Dogs. 3. Copper star.

  48. Betty Lou Calhoun says:

    I just bought a nook had no idea how to get books on it but found out Barnes and Noble is the way and I live in the country and there is not a Barnes and Noble any closer than two hours away so I was so happy to find out I could get them on ebooks through Barnes and Noble.. I purchased The Letters and The Calling and have books on my nook now. I only read Amish books now.. for the last few years. I have read a lot of Beverly Lewis and I am starting yours now I have read a couple of your books not ebooks so I am starting a collection of yours now.. I wished I got a kindle after I realized I could only get from Barnes and Noble but I can get them on my iphone I was told.. thank you for reading this and thank you for the good wholesome Christian material that we have to read from your labors of love.

  49. Denise S. says:

    After walking around the whole mall I found out they closed the one at Westfield/Franklin Park Mall last year, so there is none close to me:(

  50. Pam C says:

    We have no B&N here either. Amazon has pages of your books though.

  51. Your style is really unique in comparison to other people I’ve read stuff from.

    I appreciate you for posting when you have the
    opportunity, Guess I’ll just book mark this site.

  52. Your means of explaining all in this paragraph is in fact pleasant,
    every one be able to without difficulty understand it, Thanks a lot.

  53. Ask the pizza fan who regularly savors the various types.

    I grew up in the mountains and as a child, young adult and the person I now am, I always drank
    from all the streams, with little regard as to what was grazing or – please don’t be alarmed – lying dead in the
    water upstream. Finding ways to save money while still performing efficiently is crucial to running a good business.
