Final Day of Stand Alone Challenge

Today is the final day for the Stand Alone photo challenge, and the prompt is Faith Refined.

In every book of the Sola Series, at least one character grapples with questions about his or her faith. In Stand Alone, Jackson struggles with issues such as forgiveness and the question of why bad things happen to good people. He has to decide when to speak up about his faith, even if that means he’s standing alone.

Who is another book character whose faith is challenged and refined through the course of the book?

Find me @ruthmeyerauthor on Instagram, and you just might win all four books of the Sola Series! If you’ve already read them, please do leave a review. I love to hear from my readers!

Throughout the Sola Series, Grace and her family have faced many set-backs in life. In Stand Alone, Jackson’s future crumbles before his eyes. All he’s ever wanted to do is play football in college, but a major sports injury his senior year of high school crushes that dream.

Who is another book character to experience life set-backs?

Today is Day 3 of the Instagram photo challenge for the release of Stand Alone! The prompt for today is “Stages of Life.”

The characters in the #SolaSeries often enter into a new phase of life. In Stand Alone, Grace’s children are all in school for the first time in twenty years, and she has to decide how to structure her time. Meanwhile, Jackson is off to a new and exciting world of college, which brings its own challenges.

Anything new can usher in a different phase of life: a birth, new job, marriage, divorce, an empty nest with the kids leaving home, and even death. What is a book that looks at different stages or phases of life?

Be sure to find me on Instagram @ruthmeyerauthor to enter the contest for a chance to win all four Sola Series books!

Yesterday was a successful launch for Stand Alone! Thanks to readers like you, it hit the #1 New Release for Contemporary Christian Fiction on Amazon! (As of right now, it’s still at that spot, but Amazon updates their stats hourly, so no telling how long it will stay that way!) If you have’t gotten your copy yet, please order today! And if you haven’t joined in the Instagram photo challenge, today is a great day to start! Find me @ruthmeyerauthor to join in the fun. Today’s prompt is Family.

In every book of the Sola Series, Grace’s family has faced challenges that could easily tear them apart. Yet God is faithful in bringing healing and forgiveness to broken and strained relationships. In Stand Alone, Jackson has to decide how to handle his relationship with his estranged father even as he helps his best friend, whose family is falling apart.

What is a book that explores the theme of family?

I love to see the answers people come up with for the photo prompts. Enter the challenge for a chance to win all four Sola Books!

He’s not the only one to face changes, though. The entire family experiences transition as the kids get older and enter new phases of life. Stand Alone is about identity, character, and standing up for the truth, because God promises His children will never stand alone.

When Money Gets in the Way

There were a dozen reasons to say no. The family asking for help with their bill was well-known around town. They didn’t make wise use of money, often asked for handouts, and were generally looked upon with suspicion. People didn’t trust them, and for good reason. Besides, it’s not good to enable people, right? Let them learn from the consequences of their actions. You don’t want to risk them coming back to you again and again. It’s best not to get involved at all.

With all the excitement of new releases for the Sola Series, it’s easy for my first book to get lost in the shuffle! Six years ago this week I received a contract for Our Faith from A to Z, the children’s book that made me an author! But despite good sales for the book, it has relatively few reviews. Potential buyers often read reviews to help them make their final decision. So it’s time for another contest! Everyone who reviews Our Faith from A to Z will be entered into a drawing to receive a signed advance copy of Stand Alone! (Official launch date is Sept 23, but the winner of the contest will receive it before then!) You can leave a review on multiple sites for multiple entries into the drawing: CPH, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads. Once you’ve left a review, sign up via the contest form. Contest runs through Sunday, September 8, and the winner will be announced on Monday morning. Enter today! (And while you’re at it, leave a review for the Sola books as well! 🙂
