  1. That is a beautiful cake. This is such a generous giveaway. Thanks to all who have participated in the giveaway. I already own all the ebooks so put my name down for the Austen Swag. That is some really cool stuff. Good Luck to everyone in the drawing. Happy Birthday to our dear Jane. She lives on in the printed word that gives honor to her work. I hope she would approve. Blessings.

    • Please, please don’t stop writing JAFF books. I believe that I’ve exhausted the current supply…Lol! I am now rereading everything. Thank you for the awesome giveaway chance, now get back to work!!! 😂

    • What a treat, Abigail! Happy Birthday, dearest Jane! I can’t help but wonder what she would think if she knew how many people she has brought together and inspired the world over. I own the ebooks already, so I will enter for the swag bonanza 😉


  2. I would love the SWAG Giveaway! (I primarily read printed JAFF books – lots of them – so I will find these.) Thank you for the generous gifts and Happy Holidays!

  3. Just wondering if that is a real cake. Did you make it Madam? I tis beautiful. It was nice of you all to celebrate Ms Austen’s birthday.

    Remembering your birth Ms Jane Austen, from all your fans/followers.

  4. The cake is beautiful. Thank you so much for your generosity. So glad Jane, through her writing, has given us a chance to get to know each other. That is the best gift she could have given us.

  5. Jane Austen is one of my favorite author! Pride and Prejudice is my all time favorite book. I can’t wait to see Sanditon on Masterpiece PBS.

    The giveaway is awesome. Thank you for a chance.

  6. Gorgeous cake! Great prizes but please don’t enter me as I’m in the UK so don’t qualify for the swag and I already have the fab ebooks!
    So grateful to Jane for writing P&P and thus inspiring all the wonderful JAFF books. Thank you!

  7. What a generous giveaway and the cakes pictured are gorgeous! I would appreciate the Jane Austen variations library or the swag. Both gifts are lovely and since the majority of my reading is P & P variations, either gift is stupendous! Thank you for doing this and Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!!!

  8. I wonder how Jane Austen would feel if she could hear all the adulation over her works 200 years later? You have put together a wonderful way to celebrate her birthday–and that cake is awesome! If I am so very fortunate to win, I would choose the swag as I already own the e-books being offered. Thank you so much for the opportunity to put my name in the drawing.

  13. I love the silhouette of Austen on the cake and the quills. Whether your talent is in writing or decorating, I am in awe of the creative process. Interested in the e-books. The swag is great, but I can give in to “tsundoku” virtually, rather than have more physical stuff.

  14. This looks very fun, and I always love your books, Abigail! I’m interested in the swag, and in the book A Matter of Honor (I already have Mr. Darcy’s Enchantment, which is a delight, though if I won it I could gift it to someone, I suppose!) Thanks!

  15. Two very talented artists born on this day . . . Ms Austen and Mr Beethoven. It is my birthday too. Such splendid prizes. So much so that I would be content winning either one. Thank you for the opportunity, Ms Reynolds.

  16. I’m so happy to find Jane later in my book reading life, and Abigail and the other Austen authors for keeping her memory alive and well with the variations in her classic novels. Nothing better than reading or watching an adaptation of one of the books when the husband is gone 🙂 and it’s chick flick night. Fantastic cake! Love it. Thanks for your generosity in the Austen Bonanza – ebooks, swag or both – Santa Abigail!

  57. Just checking on the date for the announcement of the winner of your lovely giveaway, Abigail, and discovered that my comment didn’t register for some reason. Hope this one does!

    As I’m in the UK, it’d have to be the ebooks for me. I already have Mr. Darcy’s Enchantment as an ebook and audiobook, which I absolutely loved – one of my favourite reads if this year! So, I’d love a chance at winning A Matter of Honour, please.

    Belated happy 244th birthday to Jane!
