It’s the season of giving, and I love to give presents, as you all know. I got a wild idea to create a Christmas box (or a New Year box for my Eastern European friends out there) and fill it with books from southern authors. A few hours and emails later I had TEN books for the box. TEN!!!
I call this Southern Comfort, and it is chock full of signed paperbacks and fun gifts. Ornaments, paper dolls, tea towels, cooking mixes, puzzles, recipes… the list goes on.
I am REALLY excited about this box. I’d love to keep it for myself, but I won’t…
Click the link to enter the giveaway. It’s for Canada and US only. Sorry, international friends, but shipping over an ocean is expensive…

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!
Rita with her haul. She now has all 6 of my books, signed! She is pure adorable.
Finally, after all the waiting and excitement and more posts than you probably wanted, Rational Creatures is available on Amazon. Go get it!!! And tell me what you think, because I’m dying to know. (Click the image to be taken to the Amazon link)
I wrote a short story as part of the upcoming anthology Rational Creatures. (Releasing October 15th.)
My story is about and from the point of view of Anne Elliot. Anne is one of my favorite Austen characters – delightfully complicated and imminently rational.
I was recently interviewed by Ceri at Babblings of a Bookworm. Check it out!
