Another giveaway (this time from Quirk)!

September 4, 2009

Sense and Sensibility and Sea MonstersAs I’ve mentioned since starting my Everything Austen challenge, I’ve had such a wonderful response from both authors and publishers who have been really great in sending Austen-inspired books for giveaways. Next up is the highly anticipated follow-up to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Quirk books Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters! Quirk books has very generously sent me THREE copies of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters to give away!

To enter to win a copy of S&S&SM, just leave a comment in this post along with a valid e-mail address. For an additional chance to win you can Tweet about this giveaway (@SWrittenWord has THREE copies of Sense&Sensibility&SeaMonsters to giveaway!! #everythingausten) or post about this contest on your own blog. Please note that this giveaway is open to everyone (including my international readers!) and you have until Saturday, September 12th at 8 p.m. EST to enter. I will announce the winners the next day. Good luck!!

If you enjoyed the above book trailer, take a peek at Leeches in our Pants, The Making of the Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters Book Trailer here.  Thanks again Quirk for sending the books to me for a giveaway! Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters will be released on September 15, 2009.

    Hello, I noticed you aren’t using your wordpress “” site anymore. I am very interested in this domain name. Would you be willing to let me take over (actually erase everything and start new)..? In turn I would create a new blog site for you and transfer your entire blog so in effect you would have the same thing with just a new domain name. I would appreciate this IMMENSELY. thank you very much
