If you receive our monthly newsletter, you already know about our exciting October contest. (And if you don’t receive it, sign up now! You’ll get all sorts of great info and goodies, including a free download of the Stoneman’s Raid bonus chapter.)
But in case you haven’t heard of our contest, here’s the scoop: October means fall leaf season, and one of the best places to view nature’s annual display of color is Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. And with the 13 driving tours in Touring the Shenandoah Valley Backroads, 2nd edition, by Andrea Sutcliffe, watching the Valley burst into a fiery display of reds, oranges, and ambers couldn’t be easier–we even outlined some of the best tours with a view here.
So if you try one of these tours for yourself this month (or even if you’ve traveled through the Shenandoah Valley before), send us one of your favorite photos of the area for a chance to win a free, autographed copy of Touring the Shenandoah Valley Backroads or any other Blair title of your choice. You don’t have to send us fall scenes—any time of the year will do—and any shot you’ve taken of a site somewhere between Roanoke, Virginia, and Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, will count toward the contest.
Submit your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Photo Contest” in the subject heading. Please include a short sentence or two about where and when the picture was taken. Our staff at Blair will select a winner and post the results on our blog on Monday, October 25. So good luck!
In the meantime, if you want to hear the author talk about the best backroads to tour, you can see her at these locations in October.
