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!

And I’m sorry, but I just can’t resist including a screenshot of the #1 New Release! Thanks again, readers!

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! 🙂

Okay, Faith Alone fans! Now that the paperback is available both on Barnes and Noble and on Amazon (and ranked in the top 10 bestsellers for Christian Contemporary Fiction as of this morning) it’s time for a contest! Post a picture of your copy of the book (ebooks are fine, so long as the screen is visible enough to tell it’s Faith Alone) on Facebook and be sure to tag my personal or author account so I can enter you in the contest! You could win one of the two beautiful plaques pictured here, handmade by a talented local friend. One prize will be awarded for the most creative picture (as judged by my launch team members), and one will be a random drawing from all entries. The contest runs through Wednesday, May 15, and entrants may submit one picture a day through the submission period.

In the meantime, here’s what other readers are saying about Faith Alone:

This is a sweet Christian novel, full of realistic family drama. Faith Alone deals with controversial topics, but Meyer handles them well, and in a very faith-based manner. If you’re looking for a Christian book with good morals, this may be just what you need.
—Reader’s Favorite

Ruth has done it again! Faith Alone is the compelling sequel to Grace Alone… It will draw you in from the first page, and yet, you won’t want to see it end. This is a thought-provoking, must-read book for Christians of all ages.
—Kristen Whirrett, Lutheran blogger at Joyfully Thriving

Faith Alone is one of the most heart-stopping, ground-breaking, truth-telling books I’ve read in a long time.
—Kellyn Roth, Reveries Co. founder and manager

This second book in the series is just as compelling as the first. Ruth writes about topics that face families in the church today. She addresses the issues realistically, but caring and compassionately. Her writing stirs emotions the entire time. It is a book you won’t want to put down.
—”Sandles,” Amazon customer
