Happy 244th Birthday to Jane Austen! She may have spent a scant 41 years on this earth, but she’s still delighting us every day, so I’m celebrating with glorious special giveaways of swag and ebooks!
Swag Giveaway: First of all, if it’s Jane Austen’s Birthday, we need Jane Austen swag, so I’ve put together a huge Austenesque Swag Bonanza. Just the thing to make your New Year bright! (US only, sorry, but the ebooks are international)
- A Pride & Prejudice mug from Penguin Books
- A Pride & Prejudice mini-notebook
- A pair of Jane Austen socks
- A Pride & Prejudice fleece lap blanket (in background)
- A deck of cards with the Pride & Prejudice peacock edition on the back
- 5 Christmas ornaments: A Pride & Prejudice snowflake, two porcelain ornaments with Regency artwork by Jane Odiwe, and Darcy and Lizzy in blown glass.
- A Pride & Prejudice tote bag
- Four invitation cards with artwork by Jane Odiwe, including Jane Austen’s birthplace, the Steventon Rectory
- A copy of my short story, “Intermezzo”
- A sandalwood fan for your Regency dress-up
- (Not shown) Cards, lots of stickers, buttons and whatever else I can squeeze into the box!
E-book Giveaway: On top of that, there’s a separate giveaway for e-book copies of my latest two novels, A Matter of Honor and Mr. Darcy’s Enchantment, available internationally. That’s a lot of reading to keep you busy over the holidays!
Want to win on of these prizes? Leave a comment telling us whether you’re interested in the Jane Austen Swag Bonanza (US only), the ebooks, or both. You can get a second chance at winning the Swag Bonanza as well as another array of Austenesque audiobooks and ebooks by also commenting at Austen Variations. Winners will be announced December 23.
Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!
The giveaway is now ended, but I’m thrilled so many of you entered! I wish I could give all of you prizes. Since so many of you entered, I decided to give away 3 sets of ebooks instead of just one. Lexi Ruben is the lucky winner of the Jane Austen Swag Bonanza, and Ann Schmenk, Erica M, and Donna Shand will all be receiving copies of A Matter of Honor and Conceit & Concealment. Happy reading, and Happy Holidays to all!
