This Saturday, November 1, is the day we in the US “Fall Back,” turning our clocks back one hour and returning to standard time. Over 200 Historical Romance authors (including me!) are using this day to Fall Back in a different way.
It is my special joy to escape into Regency England, a time of great drama and beauty, a period of social change where the old rules are questioned and where one constant prevails–true love is the path to happiness.
So we Historical Romance authors want to get a huge buzz going for Historical Romance and we need the help of all our readers and fellow authors.
It’s easy to do!
1. Take a selfie with a favourite/recently read Historical Romance.
2. Post it to social media sites starting on 10 am CST 1 November 2014. Please include the hashtag #FallBackinTime. If pictures start sneaking out on the 31st and continue through the 2nd that’s okay, too!
3. Post to the Fall Back in Time facebook page or the Historical Romance Author facebook page on Nov. 1st.
4. Spread the word about our love for historical romance through tweets and facebook posts.
Here are some generic tweets you can use:
#FallBackinTime to your first historical romance. This was mine! (pix)
#FallBackinTime with this historical romance! (pix)
Look, it’s me in the [middle ages/regency era/etc] (pix)
If I could #FallBackinTime, it’d be to this book, this era: (pix)
Where would you #FallBackinTime to? I’d go here: (pix)
My favorite time machine is a book. #FallBackinTime (pix)
If you don’t want to do a selfie, then just post to facebook or tweet without it. Just join us in celebrating Historical Romance!
