Mr. Random (otherwise known as my husband, who did the actual drawing) has spoken, and the 3 winners of my Book Launch Give-Away are Julie Freeman, Felicia, and Vicki Tolliver. Congratulations! Please contact me via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to claim your prize. Tell me what kind of book you want (paperback, Kindle, Nook, or other e-book format). For paperbacks, I will need your mailing address; e-mail address is sufficient for e-books.
For those who didn’t win this time, there’s still a few days left to enter another give-away for this book at Maria Grazia’s site, “My Jane Austen Book Club”. One way or the other, I hope you will all read and enjoy “For Myself Alone.” It was a true labor of love, not complete until shared.
She could hardly believe it… The distinction was too great… Her thoughts flew to those absent cousins with most unfeigned and truly tender regret, that they were not at home to take their place in the room, and have their share of a pleasure which would have been so very delightful to them. (Mansfield Park, chapter 28)
This quote refers to a ball, but perhaps it could apply to a book just as well.
