Giveaway Time!

Today I received some Jane Austen ten-pound notes from a great friend in England. I’ve also been cleaning my office. What does this have to do with giving gifts? Oh my goodness! You can’t imagine how many treasures I’ve found. Pemberley t-shirts, Pride & Prejudice scarves, Jane Austen candles, tea, Pride & Prejudice peacock edition notebooks, journals, Jane Austen ink & pens…and the list goes on.

I’m going in for surgery this next week to get a new hip (I’m thrilled). After the recovery, I plan to box all the goodies up and send them off to individuals selected from my mailing list. Yes, I ship internationally.

This is EXCITING!!! (Are you signed up? If not, look to the right of this post for the link, please.)


  1. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    • Thank you so much, Mary. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to getting this done. My bicycle wreck was over a year ago. I will need further surgery to repair the muscles and tendons after this heals but this is an important start. Best wishes for the giveaway. I’m excited for that too. (I suspect sometime in mid to late November.)

  2. I am happy to hear you are starting your journey to becoming well again. Best wishes.

  3. All the best and wishing you a ‘speedy’ recovery!!! I had no idea you had such a terrible bike accident! You bring such ‘Joy’ to all of us with your generous spirit!!!

    • Ha Ha! I would love to tell you that the crash was spectacular. The truth is I fell over after coming to a complete stop. My leg tangled in the chair. Total uncoordination on my part. You are quite the wordsmith, Carole. Happy weekend!

  4. You always have the best giveaways, Joy! I hope your surgery goes well and you recover very quickly. Sending you good thoughts all the way from Brazil. 🙂

  5. Thanks for the giveaway and I did download Compromised and have been enjoying it so much. Take care. Jen Red

  6. I so wish you well. I pray for you during your surgery. Love the giveaway.

  7. You are definitely the most generous author I know Joy!!
    I hope you have a quick, painless recovery 🙂

  8. Praying for your full and speedy recovery. And what a lovely generous thing to do!

  9. Best wishes for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery! ❤️
