Green Card was chosen as Best Austen-Inspired book. It’s my first time on a favorites list and I am a little bit stoked about it. 🙂 Check it out!

I could not have been more surprised when I heard a new anthology edited by Christina Boyd was coming out, I haven’t read Rational Creatures yet, but I had to read this one right away! After all, Yuletide compiles different stories during Christmas time and I could let this season go by without getting into this wonderful compilation, especially because it was written by some of my favourite authors.
The anthology is very diverse, you can find in it variations, sequels and modernizations, but all of them portray our favourite characters and have that special feeling that all Christmas romances have, and that transports us into a different reality.
The book starts with The Forfeit, a story penned by Caitlin Williams, and it could not have started better as I was immediately hooked. Everything about this story was perfect, the premise, the setting, the writing. I could not stop feeling overwhelmed…

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…

Giveaway is open through New Year’s Eve. Good luck!!! And please share!
Check it out! All the proceeds go to support Chawton Great House.
deyerGood Afternoon everyone,
I’m sure you’ve seen several posts online about the release of a new Christmas anthology edited by Christina Boyd, and I’m sure you’ve also noticed that all the proceeds of this book will be donated to Chawton Great House, so it will come as no surprise to you that I HAD to talk about it. First because once more Christina Boyd gathered some of my favorite authors, secondly because it’s a Christmas anthology and thirdly because this book was created for a great cause!
Yuletide is currently on my TBR pile and I will start reading it during the Christmas week, which means you may expect a review shortly, but until I can share my opinion of it, I’m sharing Christina’s explanation of how a project like this was built so fast!
We are also sharing a little video that shows you what you can find in this book, we hope…

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!
