Top 3 Lands Uncharted Changes Coming in 2020! (Laurie)

It's hard to believe that as of January 1st, Lands Uncharted will be four years old! So much has changed since we first got the blog up and running in 2016, from the way the blog is run to our contributing authors to the publishing industry and technology as a whole. Whew! In light of all these changes, all of us here at Lands Uncharted have been doing a lot of brainstorming over the past few months to figure out how to better accomplish our goal of gathering a community of readers and writers who love clean fantasy. And I'm SO EXCITED about what we've come up with! Here's a sneak peek at some of the upcoming changes - formatted, of course, in Top 3s style :)

3. More Books!

At the end of the day, we're all here for the books, right? I have discovered so many authors through my fellow contributors' posts, and I absolutely love getting to share my favorite books with the world. So, starting in 2020, we're going to have a book review EVERY Friday, under the new title "Weekend Reads." Are you as excited as I am?!? Yes, my to-read pile is already through the roof, but I just can't help being exhilarated by the prospect of even more new books!

2. More Authors!

The community of writers here at Lands Uncharted has always been amazing. Everyone is supportive and creative and so talented, and it's been an absolute pleasure to work with every one of our contributors and guest authors. I love that we have such a range of aspiring to published authors and that several of us have even made the jump from unpublished to published while we were part of this blog. So I'm thrilled to announce that our community is growing!! We will have FIVE new regular contributors who will make their debut posts in January, plus we're hoping to invite many more guest authors to stop by for a visit. I've so enjoyed getting to know all of these lovely writers already, and I'm so looking forward to introducing them to you!

1. More Readers!

As wonderful as my fellow Lands Uncharted authors are, the whole reason we're here is for YOU, our readers! We so appreciate the time you take to connect with us, and we've come up with a way to both say thanks and spread the word about Lands Uncharted to a broader audience. Ready for the big reveal? We are hereby launching our epic Christmas gift box giveaway!!! Eeeeek, I'm so excited! Lizzie, Katie, Lauricia, and I have each put together a book-themed Christmas gift box. FOUR lucky winners will each receive one author's box, containing at least one book and some related goodies - a bit like a one-time, personalized book subscription box. All you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter below! And if it's a success this year, we hope to make this Christmas gift box giveaway an annual tradition, so it will be even easier to enter next year when you're already signed up to receive our Lands Uncharted posts via e-mail and following us on social media :) In case this description wasn't enough to entice you, here are pictures of a few of the gift boxes (mine is actually a virtual gift box so our readers outside the U.S. can enter as well!)! Good luck!
