THE BEAST* IS BOUND!!
Flex those wrist muscles, readers!
It’s a whopping 762 pages of story, and for those who prefer a physical book to an eBook, be warned: it’s pretty heavy and, as a result of its length, very expensive (thank you Createspace NOT). 😦
I suppose if I accept it’s the length of two books, then perhaps it doesn’t seem as bad… sigh.
You can find it here if you’re bold enough to tackle it! 😜
But despite all this, I’m going to celebrate anyway, because I really do want a physical copy for myself, and I am – of course – doing a giveaway! It’s open internationally, and all you need to do to enter is answer a simple question in the Comments below.
OnTuesday, 18th July, it will be the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death. I know I am fortunate to be attending the memorial service in Winchester Cathedral on that day, but had I not been able to go, I wonder what I might have done to mark the occasion?
And that is the question: what do you hope to do on Tuesday to mark this sad but significant occasion? Re-read your favourite Austen novel or watch your favourite adaptation? Simply raise a glass of something to her?
Perhaps you intend to dress in Regency costume and delicately sip some tea – or perhaps you will persuade your loved one to don a loose white shirt and leap into the nearest stretch of water? Do share your thoughts!
The prize includes:
A copy of A Quest for Mr Darcy (paperback or eBook, winner’s choice)
- A Jane Austen 200 keyring
- A Jane Austen 200 pen and pencil
- A miniature Pride & Prejudice book
- A set of 20 Jane Austen bookplates
- A set of 4 Jane Austen Royal Mail postage stamps (released in 1975 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Jane’s birth)
- A Pride & Prejudice quote necklace
The giveaway is open for entries until midnight UK time (GMT) on Wednesday, 19th July 2017. A winner will be chosen at random and will have 72 hours to claim their prize. It unclaimed after this time, a further draw will be made.
ALL EBOOK SALES SUPPORT THE JANE AUSTEN LITERACY FOUNDATION
10% of all eBook profits (excluding paperbacks) will be donated to the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation, which aims to harness the global passion for Jane Austen to fund literacy resources for communities in need across the world. I’m so happy to be supporting this wonderful charity which promotes literacy in my favourite author’s name. ❤
* Beast, as you may already know, is how the hefty manuscript of Quest was referred to during the editing process!
