Round up of Giveaways still Running, a New One and a Sale!

Canada has just celebrated its 150th Anniversary, and there’s a big holiday pending in the US this week too, so it seemed time to celebrate!


Two of the giveaways have now closed, but thank you to everyone who entered by leaving comments at Diary of an Eccentric and Austenesque Reviews. Huge thanks to Anna and Meredith for hosting these! ❀ ❀

Two giveaways are still running, however!

There’s an exclusive outtake from the Prologue of A Quest for Mr Darcy over at Claudine’s lovely blog, Just Jane 1813, and you can read it and enter the giveaway here. Closing date for entries is 5th July.

The lovely Janet Taylor has written a beautiful and eloquent review of the book over at More Agreeably Engaged, which you can read here, and there is a further giveaway to enter. Closing date: 6th July.


In other news, the paperback is still under preparation and will be out sometime in July. I will announce it here as soon as it’s live! (Remember the accompanying health warning: make sure you have a wrist rest. On a more positive note, as my husband says, at least it will make a useful doorstop once you’re done reading!)


On 7th July, it will be the first anniversary of the release of The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen (co-written with the lovely cover designer of Quest, Ada Bright)!Β This title is now available in Kindle Unlimited AND for the coming week is also on sale at $2.99!

If you haven’t yet read of Jane Austen’s adventures in contemporary Bath during the Festival honouring her name, now is your chance! πŸ˜‰

Further exciting news about the book and the sequel will be coming in the following weeks over on our Blog at Tabby Cow.


I seem to have a spare presentation pack of the Brilliant Uncirculated Β£2 Coin featuring Jane Austen! What can you do in the circumstances? Oh yes! Give it away!

To enter the draw, just leave a comment revealing your favourite Austen character – from any novel – and why! The draw will be open for 72 hours, so a winner will be chosen on Wednesday morning UK time!

Happy Holidays to those celebrating, and good luck in the various giveaways to everyone!

    Oh hmmm, now let me see. …….. Yes after much thought πŸ˜‚ !!!! I think I will have to go with Mr Darcy. If you check out Colin and Matthew I think you might understand the ‘why’
    I have commented on all the blogs in hopes of winning your book as I am so looking forward to winning it. In the meantime I would love to win the coin so many thanks for the opportunity Cass.

  2. Anji says:

    Ooo, there’s going to be news about a sequel to The Particular Charm! Can’t wait!

    Wasn’t Janet’s review just lovely? Wish I had either your talents or hers, or possibly both, Cass.

    As you know, I already have my very own Β£2 coin, so please don’t put my name in the giveaway hat.

    • Cass says:

      I think you were the first person I saw get one of the coins, Anji! πŸ˜€

      Yes, the review was so written from the heart, but don’t do yourself the disservice of implying you can’t write eloquently too! Your review was great, and I loved the title to it! πŸ˜€

  3. Bobby Ford says:

    My favorite character would Lydia. She has such a presence. That one is a rebel.

  4. Suzanne says:

    My favourite character is Charlotte (P & P). She had so little control over her life and her prospects were grim but she soldiered on and did what was best for her.

  5. Hi Cass,
    I’m still making my way through Quest. The edited version is divine!
    For me, the favorite is Elizabeth Bennet of P&P fame. “Now despise me if you dare.”
    She started out thinking she was so clever then finally had to admit that she didn’t know everything. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes,
    Carol in CT

    • Cass says:

      Haha! No, definitely not despising your choice, Carol! πŸ˜‰

      Happy to hear you’re enjoying Quest a second time around! πŸ˜€

  6. Sheila L. Majczan says:

    I have to say Fitzwilliam Darcy: any man who can make such great changes for a woman and not expect her to then fall at his feet; even more not wanting her to know of his over-the-top deed of saving her family’s reputation and not wanting gratitude is a rare man indeed. Thanks for the chance to win.

  7. Carole in Canada says:

    Now that is such a hard question but I am going to go with Mrs. Bennet! She provides such comedic relief throughout and makes me thankful for the wonderful mother-in-law that I have!
    Just read Janet’s review and it was wonderful! I do agree that I laughed too (in your postings) with Darcy’s first meeting with Elizabeth…priceless! Your generosity knows no bounds! Thank you!
    Thank you for Canada 150 Day and Happy 4th to all in the U.S.

    • Cass says:

      Hope you are celebrating in style, Carole!

      I love your choice, and I love your reasoning over appreciating your own mother-in-law all the more. I ❀ mine too!

      I'm glad the meeting of our dear couple raised a laugh! I had hoped that would be people's reaction!

  8. darcy400 says:

    I would say it would be Anne, the middle daughter of Persuasion. She is someone who has good sense and humor and is able to move in different circles and be the best to others and try to do right by them and herself. She grew into the quiet, confident women who still steadfastly love the good Captain. She got him to see that she still loved him by just being herself and that made him realize how wrong he had been in his behavior towards her. Lovely story πŸ™‚
    Please enter me in the coin draw πŸ™‚
    Julie R

  9. I love Anne Elliot, no matter what her family does she stays kind and positive and in the end defies them.

  10. Sheila Clark says:

    My obvious choice would be Mr. Darcy because he’s Mr. Darcy, enough said… But, I love Captain Wentworth. He has all the unwavering love of Mr. Darcy, over a much longer time frame, with more opportunities to love another, but he doesn’t. He loves Anne after she has passed her prime, but he still sees the young woman he knew. ❀️

    • Cass says:

      I ❀ Captain Wentworth too, Sheila! He was constant without even realising it at first, bless him, but like all the best characters, he had to grow during the novel, and he truly put aside his resentment and saw the light. And his letter beats Darcy's hands down! Perfect!

      Good luck!

  11. darcybennett says:

    I love so many characters it’s difficult to choose just one. I guess Anne Elliot would be my top choice as she is the character I can most relate to.

  12. It’s a difficult question, but I think Fanny Price is my favorite. Her quiet strength and fire, despite a bumbling Edmund, wins my admiration.

    Thanks for the giveaway!! And congrats on the first anniversary of The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen!!

  13. Pam Hunter says:

    Darcy is very swoon-worthy, and who wouldn’t admire such a handsome and noble man? I’m going to be different, though, and give some love to Mr. Collins. I love to laugh, and he provides so many reasons to do so! I must give a great amount of credit to David Bamber’s performance in P&P95. I think he was perfect in his role.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. Betty Campbell Madden says:

    I have to agree with Pam Hunter, particularly in the stories where his character is broadened from the strictures of the canon characters, although he certainly is humorously depicted in the original as well.

    • Cass says:

      I think Jane Austen has a fabulous touch with her comedic characters. Mr Collins must be a joy for an actor to play!

      Good luck, Betty!

  15. Patricia Finnegan says:

    I like Anne Elliott from persuasion since I can relate to her (also fanny price from mansfield park)

  16. Lynn Bischoff says:

    I would have to saw my favourite character Austen character is Catherine Morland. She grows so much during the couse of the novel. My second would be Lizzy Bennet, another heroine that grew in character so much. Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

    • Cass says:

      A refreshing choice, Lynn! So many people don’t seem to enjoy reading Northanger Abbey, and I think it’s such a shame!

      Good luck!

  17. LΓΊthien84 says:

    There are a few favourite characters for me but Elizabeth Bennet takes the cake. I could understand and empathised with her when Mr Darcy slighted her during the Meryton assembly and assume the worst in regards to him. I see part of her reflected in me.

  18. Kim P. says:

    There are so many favorites it’s hard to choose. But since I must, I will go with Elizabeth Bennet. She loves her family, faults and all. I admire her loyalty. And she gets Mr Darcy in the end which doesn’t hurt either. I am all anticipation for news of your sequel, don’t keep us waiting too long!

  19. Fitzwilliam Darcy is my favorite character. He is willing to undergo so many changes in order to win the love of his life. He opens up to Elizabeth, so she will understand hi is character better.

  20. Cassandra Mariano says:

    I will always love Elizabeth Bennet… she was so strong and resilient. And it took major guts to admit when she was at fault.

  21. Jennifer Hong says:

    It’s very difficult to pick just one favorite character. The best I can do is narrow it down to two, Emma Woodhouse & Elizabeth Bennet. My reason is the same for both. They are both strong women who grow stronger through recognizing & changing their faults.

    • Cass says:

      Good decision, Jennifer! Emma is often overlooked, I think, like Fanny Price, though both for totally different reasons! ❀

  22. Lauren says:

    The struggle is real. I have such a hard time choosing between my favorite characters. I would have to say it runs the gamut between Elizabeth Bennet and Anne Elliot, but really, most likely, my favorite character is which ever novel I am reading at the time. My head does get a little blended with all of the variations I read as well. Sometimes it’s hard to remember what did and did not happen.

    By the way, my favorite new characters are the Bingley twins. They are so delightful. I would love to see a sequel with more of their escapades.

    • Cass says:

      I feel your pain over choosing between Elizabeth and Anne, Lauren! I love them both so much for different reasons.

      ❀ your comment re the twins! So touched so many people seem to like them! πŸ˜€

  23. LIZZIE, of course!! I can’t help myself! Several other contenders, but I can’t help feeling (a la Rose and you!) (and I could be totally off base there) that when I’m in Lizzie’s head, I am as close to Jane as I can be. Silly? Maybe. But therein lies Joy. πŸ™‚ sigh.. xxoo K

    • So fun to read other’s choices! All my possible picks mentioned,save one: Mr. Bennett. Amazing to think it’s been a YEAR of “Charm!” Julian’s funny. πŸ˜‰ You’re a doll, with all these wonderful giveaways. xxxxo K

      • Cass says:

        I enjoyed reading the choices too! Nice variety and lots of excellent reasons why! Mr Bennet is a great pick too! πŸ˜€

        Yes, a whole year! Hope we might see you in CA later in the year (more details coming on Tabby Cow later in the week!)

    • Cass says:

      Aww, lovely sentiments, Karylee! You can hardly go wrong choosing Lizzy! ❀
