I am happy to announce the winner of last week's favorite hero contest and giveaway. It's Stephanie, who voted for Peeta. Congratulations, Stephanie! You won an ARC of Edenbrooke and a Pride & Prejudice DVD. Please send me your snail mail address at donaldson(dot)julianne(at)gmail.com.
Now, there is nothing to be sad about if you haven't won yet! We still have five more giveaways!
My favorite review so far said of Edenbrooke: "It was like Downton Abbey, Georgette Heyer, and Jane Austen all had a baby and that baby is a literary gift to the romance world." (You can read the full review for yourself here.)
So for this week's contest, just tell us if you're a Downton Abbey fan, and who your favorite character is. If you haven't been introduced to Downton Abbey yet, don't worry! You will not be disqualified. But get thee to Netflix! And watch it! Hurry!!!!
The lucky winner will receive some hilarious paper dolls of Downton Abbey which you can cut out and play with, (see the sample below)
as well as an Advanced Reading Copy of Edenbrooke. (You know what that looks like by now, right?)
The contest will be open starting now until next Monday, February 27, at midnight. As always, you will get extra points for telling me you follow my blog (and actually following it) and for sharing the news with your friends on Facebook or Twitter. (You have to tell me you've done this, because I can't track people down. Just mention it in the comment.) And new this week, thanks to Jenny Faires: a fourth point is possible if you ask your local library to order Edenbrooke.
Isn't this exciting? Now let's talk Downton Abbey! Did you love the Christmas special? Wasn't the last scene beautiful? Does anyone feel sorry for Thomas?
