Jane's 237th Birthday & a 99-Cent Ebook Deal!

Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!!! (Hey, you look fabulous to my eye, even at age 237... ;)

Hope you're all having a happy start to the holiday season! Here, it's been the usual hecticness, but I love that there is NO SNOW in our area yet. (My sincere apologies to snow lovers everywhere but, really, it's like a huge Christmas present for me NOT to have to scrape and shovel that fluffy white stuff while trying to get everything done.) I remember going to an Austen birthday luncheon a few years back and having to deal with blizzard-like conditions on the drive home, so mere rain in December is always welcome!

I sent out my newsletter this past week and, for those of you who didn't know about this, I'll mention it again here: As a special for the holidays, Double Dipping is on sale right now at both Amazon and B&N for just 99 cents! If you don't have copy yet, I hope you'll consider picking one up for yourself or giving it as a gift to an ebook-reading relative/friend.

Wishing you all a wonderful rest of the month, full of celebrations with those you love!! xox

I love the picture of Jane with the balloons. Happy birthday to her!

Jane does look every inch the birthday girl in the photo, doesn't she? ;-) Here's to many happy returns of the day for her and for us, her fans.

Thanks, Edie and Pamala! I'm sure Jane enjoyed having all of us celebrate with her ;).

Hugs to you both for a wonderful week!! xo
