“Friday the 13th” eBook Giveaway

Friday the 13th.

Tradition tells us it’s a “freaky” day, when bad things can easily happen.

According to Disney, even a body swap!

Let’s bring on some good luck for a change. Like an eBook giveaway.

That’s right. I’m offering Darcy By Any Other Name — my lighthearted Darcy-Collins body swap — to one lucky winner.

This giveaway is limited to USA residents only. To enter, leave a comment here before midnight, Friday, April 13, 2018. I’ll draw names out of a hat and will announce the winner on April 14th.

Me, unlucky?  But I’m so cute and fluffy!

Do you already own a copy? Enter anyway! If you win, I’ll be happy to send the prize to a friend of your choosing.

Here’s my question for you. Which “Friday the 13th” superstition creeps you out the most? 

  • black cats crossing your path
  • don’t walk under that ladder
  • bad luck comes in threes
  • don’t break the mirror
  • beware of those sidewalk cracks
  • don’t spill the salt
  • no umbrellas inside

Or perhaps you have another bad luck tale? Do tell!

Lia London and her daughter made this fun Freaky Friday Darcy review.

Happy National Read in a Bathtub Day

We have your CLEAN reads.

Read in a Bathtub 1Yes, friends, that’s a thing. February 9th is National Read in a Bathtub Day. Isn’t that a perfect day for a clean read? Get it? Clean read?

In honor of this auspicious occasion, and because we’re just nice like that, Laura Hile and I have surprises for you. Such deals!

Read in a Bathtub Laura

Laura is offering Marrying Well for Fun and Profit, her hilarious tome of Sir Walter Elliot’s relationship advice for the Upwardly Mobile Miss, for FREE. Yes, I just said that! You can have Sir Walter for nothing! (Just don’t tell Sir Walter. Let him think he’s popular and people love him because he’s wonderful. He wouldn’t like being FREE.)

Read in a Bathtub

I, too, have an humble gesture of good will in honor of the day. Understanding Elizabeth is on sale for 99 cents. Fabulous! Simply fabulous!

So soak your tired bones in some bubble bath and enjoy a couple of good books.  In fact, you can find our books, along with more than fifty other  CLEAN READS here. All books are priced at 99 cents or are FREE!

FREE Understanding Elizabeth

My latest novel, Understanding Elizabeth, is on Book Bub today!

I have never been good at keeping my feelings to myself, so I’m going to FREELY admit that I’m VERY excited about being on Book Bub. I tried years ago to promote my books with them, but I wasn’t accepted. For me, this is a milestone.

UE BB5

The giveaway is for Amazon Kindle only, but if you don’t own a Kindle, that’s not a problem. I downloaded the Kindle app for FREE to my phone. Now I have several thousand books at my disposal wherever I am.

UE BB3

Stuck standing in line? I whip out my phone, go to the app, and read. Waiting at the doctor’s office? I actually like it. Stuck in traffic? It doesn’t bother me.

And – because I love you all so much, and I’m just that kind of person (Ha!) – I’ve lowered the prices of ALL of my books to $1.99 for the two day sale. Even A Very Austen Christmas is $1.99 for two days!

UE BB4

So, hurry over to Amazon and download some enjoyment for those times you’re sitting somewhere bored to death. You won’t regret it.

Here’s a little secret: If you already have the book, you can “gift” it to a friend for FREE!

Books make us famous!

Robin Helm’s Guardian trilogy

It’s a banner day for friend and co-author Robin Helm, because she has a book signing at the Lancaster County Library this afternoon.

Talk about serendipity! Robin only meant to donate a set of her Guardian trilogy, but then she and the librarian got to talking — as book lovers will do.

And when Ms. Williams learned that Robin was not only a local writer, but a #1 Amazon Best Seller author too (A Very Austen Christmas), she immediately scheduled this event.

And ordered all of Robin’s books for every library in the county.

And printed posters. And contacted the local newspaper.

So there’s my name, in a newspaper being read at the breakfast table on the other side of the continent. We are famous! Well, for a few minutes anyway.

Also in the news, Candy’s So Little Time blog is featuring an excerpt from A Very Austen Christmas. We thought she was doing an eBook giveaway too, though Candy does not mention it.

I’ll get back to you on that.

Oh, wait. I am famous. Belay that. I’ll have one of my “people” post the update.

*Laura scurries off to “hire” a press secretary*

UPDATE: The eBook giveaway is ON. Hooray!

A Very Austen Christmas - 3D

Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit posted a lovely book review with an excerpt from Laura’s story. The giveaway will end December 5.

Nissa, Of Pens and Pages, presented the backstory of my original character, Thomas, along with a wonderful review. Her giveaway ends  December 9.

On Laura Hartness’s blog, The Calico Critic, you’ll find an excerpt from my story, as well as a giveaway ending December 9.

Giveaways at Claudine’s JustJane1813, author Chautona Havig’s lovely blog, Ceri’s Babblings of a Bookworm, and Janet’s More Agreeably Engaged have already ended; however, there are author biographies, story blurbs, author interviews, story excerpts, and great reviews at those sites.

Upcoming giveaways, reviews, and other fun events are scheduled throughout December at Meredith’s Austenesque Reviews, Elisabeth’s Poolside Musings, Candy’s So Little Time, Anna’s Diary of an Eccentric, and Rita’s From Pemberley to Milton.

In other exciting news, Laura Hile is releasing the second edition of her Mercy’s Embrace books. Her book one, So Rough a Course, cover reveal  will be at JustJane 1813 on December 2. That’s tomorrow! Be sure to stop by and cheer her on.

You’re going to LOVE the new covers. I’ve seen them, and they are truly beautiful. I would love to post her new cover myself, but you’ll just have to wait until tomorrow. (Insert evil laugh.)

More to come, too! Watch for upcoming reviews, blog posts, and giveaways of So Rough A Course at Savvy Verse & Wit, Of Pens and Pages, and The Calico Critic.

Another bit of good news – Laura Hile, Wendi Sotis, Barbara Cornthwaite, and I have all lowered the prices of our other books throughout December. Merry Christmas!
