Restorer Series Going Out Of Print-Contest Announcement!

That's right, sad news for all of us who are fans of Sharon Hinck's The Restorer, The Restorers Son, and The Restorer's Journey.

However, over at Sharon Hinck's blog the lovely scribe herself isn't wallowing in woe-is-meisms but is choosing instead to celebrate the run of this usual, cross over series.

Recently I came across a copy of The Restorer by Sharon Hinck that I had bought and low and behold, this copy is SIGNED. Uh-huh, I'm sure I bought it for someone's birthday or Christmas gift some time ago but I can't remember for the life of me who that might have been.

However, Scribe's faulty memory is YOUR blessing.

I was going to do a COTSK give-away in November (I've all ready bought the book ;) so have no fear) but instead I'm going to be giving away the signed copy of The Restorer by Sharon Hinck.

If you are interested in taking part in this contest--just sign up in the comments below. I'll post more about it this evening.

Don't know who Sharon is? Go here!
Don't know anything about the book? Go here!

I first met Sharon when His Way hosted the Fantasy 4 Fiction Tour, and here are some of my favorite pictures of her from the event! You might recognize some rapscallions in the pictures beside her. Ignore them ;)

The green banner is the one that I made for Sharon, some OTHER AUTHOR has the blue one in the back ground there.  You get bragging points if you can guess author/book it is suppose to represent.

There's Sharon, goofing off with some rapscallions. It was a real blessing to be on hand and see Sharon meeting fans and ministering to those with wounded hearts from all over.  There  was a price for this selfless act however, the fellows she hung out with corrupted her vocabulary with words like DUDE and COOL. :-D

And more proof that the lady can handle steel and goof off with fans at the same time! One of my favorite pictures of Sharon, with my two "little brothers" rented for the day, Christian in red and Kirk well, emphasizing Sharon's skill with steel.

Sounds cool! I guess I'll try (sorry about never sending you the list for the CoSK contest)

Not a problem Chris :-D

And like I said, I've got another one ready and waiting, but we're going to celebrate Sharon's series this month instead. ;)

Storyteller said...

*considers listing all the fantasy 8 tour authors to guess the banner* But I won't. I read on her blog that they're going out of print so I bought them. Not very helpful to her, but I've wanted to read them for some time.
Oh, and this is not a comment to participate in the contest. I already bought it ;)
Is the banner... wild guess here... The Door Within Trilogy?

Noah said...

Oh, too bad, I was hoping the contest was for each of the books, I already have the first one and it is signed. I met her on the motiv8 tour last year. I think the banner represents Eric Reinhold and his Ryann Watters series.

Nathan R. Petrie said...

I'd love to enter the contest!
So Restorer's going out of print!!! I needed to buy one. They have 'em all in stock at my FAmily Christian Store. But if I win it ;)

I was going to guess Eric or Wayne. I's not sure now who it is <_<

everlastingscribe said...

Storyteller-Spot on my friend, spot on! It's for Allebel

Noah-that's awesome that you met the fine Lady Warrior and sorry my friend, just the first one. I betcha you could pop over to Sharon's blog and she might be willing to sign bookplates for anything you have that's not signed.

Scribe: Did you delete my comment? Or perhaps it never loaded correctly. No matter. How does this "shindig" start?


Storyteller said...

Whoopee! Bragging rights! *laughs* I thought it looked a bit like the sun rising between the mountains. They are very nice banners, Scribe.

Millardthemk said...

Aha! I should have guessed. Excellent ST, you hit it on the head:D

Katie G. said...

I will try the contest! Sorry about the last contest. :/ I was going to have a go at it, but then a whole bunch of other things popped up and I had to let a few things go :( .

Chris said...

So, when will you post the rest of the details?
