Week 1: Win an advance copy of To Whisper Her Name

Want to win an advance copy of To Whisper Her Name? It's easy to do…

As I told you in the previous post, Zondervan flew a video crew to Nashville earlier this spring and we filmed video vignettes on location at the Belle Meade Plantation describing the history behind the plantation and the story in To Whisper Her Name.

Each Monday, starting today (8-27-12), and for the next five weeks, we'll launch another vignette in anticipation of the release of To Whisper Her Name on October 23rd!

This is where the chance to win an advance copy comes in!

Each time you share the weekly video with your blog and/or facebook readers, or tweet about it to your friends, your name will be entered into that week's drawing. All you have to do is post a comment on the weekly blog post (found on this blog... www.tameraalexander.blogspot.com) and let me know the links where you posted the YouTube video link for that week's vignette.

Simple enough?

So, if you've already shared this week's video, "Welcome to Belle Meade Plantation," please leave a comment below with the links where you shared it. Each Monday morning I'll announce the winner from the previous week who will receive an advance copy of To Whisper Her Name! I'll also post the video for next week as well. Easy as that!

Any questions? Please ask! And again, here's the first video for Week 1 (out of 6 weeks total). So please, let the sharing begin!

  43. I posted on Facebook and Twitter! I think I might have been at Belle Mead! I visited a plantation in Nashville a few years ago and I know it had to do with horse racing. I have to figure out if it's the same! https://twitter.com/Shopgirl152ny/status/241019128163467264
