Giving Away Five Copies of The Oregon Trail Romance Collection

 In Novel Giveaway, Oregon Trail

Ttrail_romance_flat_390hree years ago my daughters and I set out on an adventure to explore the old Oregon Trail. We traveled 2,000 miles via car as we explored the trail from Wyoming to Portland.

(for a glimpse of our journey, please visit my website here.)

The research from our journey was woven into my novel Where the Trail Ends (2012), but then I was given another opportunity to write a novella called “Beckoned Hearts” for The Oregon Trail Romance Collection. It was an honor to write a fictional story about a woman alone on this trail–one of more than 300,000 pioneers who took the harrowing journey west.

There are nine novellas in  The Oregon Trail Romance Collection, and to celebrate the release, I will be giving away five copies of the collection. To be included in the giveaway, you can either fill out the submission form below or leave a comment by clicking the comment icon at the top of the post.

Thanks for journeying with me! ~Melanie

    I have been dipping my toes into new reading territory – Christian historical fiction and Amish Fiction. I am not sure why I have avoided the genres, but I am enjoying myself. I just finished Amish Promises by Leslie Gould last night and noticed her acknowledgement of your help. Great book and I am looking forward to reading more of yours.

    • Melanie Dobson

      That’s so fun that you read Leslie’s book as well! I hope you continue to enjoy your new reading territory.
