Launch Day and Giveaway for Searching for Mr Tilney!


I'm celebrating the official publication day for Searching for Mr Tilney today with a GIVEAWAY!

Giveaway One



First, there's a book bundle of a paperback copy of the book, plus an illustrated copy of Northanger Abbey, and a small patterned notebook/journal, as pictured above. Illustrations in the copy of Northanger Abbey are by Philip Gough.

GIVEAWAY TWO



 Giveaway Two includes a paperback copy of Searching for Mr Tilney, a vintage style journal for you to jot down your own thoughts like my heroine Caroline, and a goose feather pen to write them down.

I hope you feel tempted to join in and help me celebrate! All you have to do is reply here saying which prize you'd like. I can only accept entries that are submitted in the contact box. I will reply to every one so if you don't hear from me, let me know in the comment box below. Closing date for entries: Wednesday April 19 2017.
Thank you very much to all the lovely people who have bought the paperback or downloaded a copy already. This is my last Jane Austen book for a while - I'm planning to take some time out. I've loved writing these books and it's been such a pleasure to get to know my readers since my very first attempts at putting a book together with Effusions of Fancy - thank you for all your wonderful encouragement over the years and for your generous, uplifting letters and comments even more. You will never know how much they've truly meant to me.

Anji said...

What an amazing pair of prize bundles! Thanks so much for your generosity. I've just sent my details along with my choice via the contact box, so you should have it by now. Project Darcy was the first book of your that I read and, as it happens, it was my first ever giveaway win after stumbling upon the wonderful Austenesque online community just over three years ago. Now I can't imagine life without it!

Sorry you won't be writing for a while but if you need to take a break, then we'll still be around as and when you decide to take up the old quill again.

Love the cover of the new bookand will catch up with the excerpt from yesterday when I have some free time tomorrow

Best wishes to you!

Hope I'm in time for this giveaway Jane. It's such an amazing generous offer and I wish you all the luck in the world with the book. Even though I love reading novels from books rather than on a kindle or ipad, I have to say, I downloaded it onto my ipad straight after reading Chapter Two here on your blog and am already a third through. It really is difficult to put down.
Enjoy your well earned break and do all the wonderful things you have been dreaming of. You never know, it might not be too long before some new ideas come popping into your mind :-)
Many thanks xx

Jane Odiwe said...

Thank you Anji, for all your kind thoughts and wishes! Yes, your details are logged safely-I've been overwhelmed by the lovely response from lots of readers who have written to me.

Yes, Angela-plenty of time-until next Wednesday, in case anyone else is wondering. I'm thrilled you're enjoying the book-thank you for all your kind wishes.

Ceri T said...

I'm sorry to hear that you're taking a break from writing but I hope you enjoy your time out :)

Jane Odiwe said...

It may not be a complete break from writing, just from writing about Jane Austen, Ceri. I really want to explore writing other kinds of books too! Thank you for visiting!

MonicaP said...

Looking forward to reading this new book, and I hope your hiatus from Austen and foray into other genres is everything you hope it will be. :)

Jane Odiwe said...

Thank you Monica for your kind comments-I hope you enjoy my new book!

Laurel Ann (Austenprose) said...

Jane, I can't believe you are offering our favorite Austen illustrator! And, I do not own this copy of NA!

Jane Odiwe said...

Well, I've got a copy and I spotted this one at a bargain price so thought it would be a lovely keepsake for someone! Thank you for stopping by!!
