Win a signed copy of Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler


Tonight’s giveaway is pretty special: a copy of the paperback edition of Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, personally inscribed to the winner by the author!

The companion book to Confessions, Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict, will be out in May 2009. We asked Laurie to tell us a little bit about it:

In CONFESSIONS, my 21st-century protagonist woke up one morning in the body and life of a woman in Regency England. In RUDE AWAKENINGS, the 19th-century woman awakens as the 21st-century woman in Los Angeles. Talk about culture shock.

If you would like to enter the drawing for the autographed book, send an e-mail to austenblog AT gmail DOT com with your full name, mailing address, how you would like the book inscribed (your name or the person to whom you will give the book) and, now that we’ve disposed with His Lordship, “confess” whether you would be on Jane Austen’s naughty or nice list! All entries received by 12 noon on Sunday, December 21, will be entered in a drawing to win the book (so it won’t arrive in time for Christmas, sorry). Incidentally, we’re getting a big kick out of all the contest entries. Our Gentle Readers are a stone riot.

Privacy disclaimer: We are collecting the name and address information to make it easier to get the prize to the winner. Only the Editrix will see the entries and after the contest is over they will be deleted. We will share the winner’s information with Laurie Viera Rigler as she has graciously agreed to mail the book as well as sign it (thanks, Laurie!).
