Birthday for Me, Present for You!

Hello lovelies! If you recall, there is a Ukrainian tradition of treating others on one’s birthday. Since I am an honorary Ukrainian (thanks to my lovely husband), I follow this tradition.

Last year I gave away a few sets of my entire catalog in e-book. This year, I am giving away 6 SIGNED PAPERBACKS to 6 lucky winners. Just comment here or on Rita’s blog, From Pemberley to Milton.

Rita recently visited the U.S. (she lives in Portugal) with her husband and they stayed with me and my family for a few days. They were lovely houseguests and I thoroughly enjoyed teaching her how to make grilled cheese and talking late into the night about all things Austen.

She has a small obsession with paperbacks, especially if they’re signed, and she left with a haul! Her love of hard-copy books and my love of giving presents (seriously, it’s one of my favorite things to do) inspired this particular giveaway.

There is only one copy of each title up for grabs, so list the ones you want in order. For example:

1: Unwilling 2: On Equal Ground 3: Meryton Vignettes 4: The Houseguest 5:Green Card 6: The 26th of November

We will put all the names in a hat (figuratively) and choose six names. The first gets the book at the top of their list, the second gets the book closest to the top that is still available, and so on.

I’ll personally sign each book with your name and a little message and pop it into the mail. And yes, it is open INTERNATIONALLY. It just might take a while to get there if you are really far away…

Don’t forget to share and good luck!
