First of all, I want to send out a big THANK YOU to our readers and reviewers for making last week's Surprise Super Sale so successful. During the sale, we topped the charts in all of the Literary Criticism Best Seller Lists on Amazon. Both the Winter Edition 2022 and the Spring Edition 2023 are still sitting pretty in the top 100 of several categories. Most notably, the Winter Edition 2022 is at #16 on the Literary Criticism Reference list. Thanks again for making this magazine a success!
Also, have you watched the Christian Nerds Unite Podcast yet? If you haven't, I highly recommend it! Ricky Pope does a great job as a host and ALL of the episodes are fun and informational to watch. It is available on all of the podcasting platforms and as well as on YouTube.
Submissions for our Windows into the Multiverse Writing Contest AND Beachy Bookstagram Contest end on April 29th. Currently, we only have 2 submissions for our Beachy Bookstagram Contest. I would like to note that the book does NOT have to be beach themed just displayed in a Summery way. This is a super fun FREE way to advertise your book in the magazine, so don't let this opportunity pass you up! As for the writing contest, we are still accepting submissions right up to the deadline. Winners will be announced on May 4th (Star Wars Day) in our newsletter/blog/social media.
Speaking of advertising, if you are interested in advertising in the upcoming Summer Edition 2023 we must know by May 13th! Author/Book Events start at just $5 and all advertising is very reasonably priced. Please check out our website's "Pricing Guide" page for sizes and prices. As always, Book Review Submissions are open under "Submissions".

Windows into the Multiverse Writing Contest: Submissions end on April 29th. Please keep your submission to between 800 and 1,200 words.
