An Invitation

A week from today, I will be leaving on a book-signing and speaking tour in the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. Believe me, I know how blessed I am to have this opportunity, especially after already visiting Germany earlier this year! Many people have told me how much they enjoyed traveling with me the first time so I’ve decided to invite you all to come along with me this time, too.

I will be posting photos on Facebook and Instagram (@Lynnaustinbooks  #lynnaustin) and on this blog. You can expect a few of the usual tourist pictures, but I also hope to post some of the fun and unusual things I see and experience.

When I return, I want to give away some souvenirs from those three countries to thank you for traveling with me. I’ll pick out something special from each place and add a copy of my novel “Where We Belong” to each package.


The two main characters, Rebecca and Flora Hawes, loved to travel even though they lived in the Victorian era when women weren’t allowed to travel the world unescorted. When you read their story, it will take you on another adventure.

If you’d like a chance to win one of these souvenir packages,

you need to do three things.

  1. Please stop by my website, and sign up for my newsletter. Congratulations! You are already just put your email into the box on the right side of this page.
  2. Follow or like me on Facebook.
  3. If you have Instagram, follow me here also.

If you’re already on my newsletter list then you’re already entered! (Sorry, but postage costs limit me to US addresses only.) Last date to enter is June 16.

If you think of me, please pray for safety while traveling, and for rest and strength and good health for me and all those traveling with me. And especially pray for God’s blessing on the speaking opportunities He’s given me. These include bookstores, ladies’ breakfasts, churches, and a Christian book festival. It’s an opportunity and responsibility that I don’t take lightly!

In Marburg, Germany I’ll be celebrating the 100th anniversary of my German publishing company, Francke, which has been doing an excellent job of providing quality Christian books since 1918. Congratulations to them! I am honored to partner with you.

So, what’s on your travel “bucket list?” Where would you most like to go if you had the chance?


  1. Have a wonderful trip! I’ll be praying for your strength, good sleep and good health. Love your trips and thanks for taking us along.

  2. Have a great and safe trip. Gary and I planned to travel after retirement. Unfortunately that never happened due to his illness. Always wanted to get back to Israel.
    Enjoy every day.
    Blessings, LINDA

  3. Have a safe trip. We will miss seeing you here in Chicago, but blessings on your time in Europe.

  4. Praying traveling mercies for you & all who travel with you. I’ve been to ”the continent, ” but would love to spend time in the U.K.

  5. Praying that your travels are safe and you’ll see our God working through and in every circumstance you encounter. As His ambassador may others see Jesus in you too.

  6. I want to go to Sweden! My daughter and I travel frequently and that’s next on our list!

  7. I have so much awe for you and your incredible writing . I own every book you have written and can hardly wait until til the next one comes out.
    I love the way you honor our Lord in each one.
    I hope you have a wonderful trip. I would love anything Scandinavian

  8. Would love to read your new book and get a souvenir from one of your trips….
    All 3 are done..

  9. I will be keeping you in prayer. I know you will be a blessing to all you come in contact with, just like your books have. You are my favorite Aurhor. Your books have blessed me and have brought me so much comfort and peace in the troubled times of my life, I can’t thank you enough for that. One day my prayer is to be able to visit Austria

  10. Praying for a safe and fun trip. If I could go anywhere, I think it would be Australia…or Ireland.

  11. I subscribe and follow! Lynn, I am super excited for you to go on your trip. It sounds like a grand adventure with fun memories to be had, while also blessing those oversea with speaking engagements by you. All the places sound fun, especially Switzerland and Germany (or perhaps I think this because of my heritage). 🙂 Sending blessings for save travels and great experiences. Congrats to your publishing company as well!

  12. What an exciting time ahead of you! May blessings be with you and all your travels be safe. I have always wanted to see Ireland and Italy! Maybe someday I will. Rebecca and Flora Hawes were amazing characters! I felt like I was right there with them in their travels!

  13. I hope you have a wonderful trip! My bucket list travel dream is to visit every continent, so far I’ve only crossed off 2.

  14. I am already a subscriber and follow you on both Instagram and Facebook. Safe travels! I’d love to go to Scotland, Ireland and England.

  15. We went to Austria, Italy, France and England last fall. I really want to go back to Austria and add Switzerland and Germany to the trip. I am hooked!

  16. I pray you have a safe journey and have lots of fun meeting your European readers. I’ll look forward to seeing your photos on Facebook.

  17. I add my wishes for a wonderful and safe trip. Hubby and I recently returned from a 2 week trip to Spain, a week in Barcelona, then a week in Madrid. Absolutely loved it!! Want to go back, so much to see and experience! Would also like to go to Scotland.

  18. My friend just returned from living in Germany, but is going back so she and her son can be with her husband. They’ve been working on getting his immigration stuff worked out. She’s always spoken of how pretty it is there and how everything tastes different.

  19. Thank you for this opportunity!

    I really want to get to see Prince Edward Island!

  20. Praying for safe travels! I enjoy living vicariously through you and your photos! Me and my husband are hoping to travel Europe one day, until then I scroll through your social media and enjoy your adventures.

  21. I hope your traveling is still good, and you’re in good health. Will pray for you to be a light to the audience as you speak.
    MY bucket list travels are: the Smithsonian Institute, and the Appalacian mountain territory. I’d like to vist where Christy Huddleston lived and taught.
