Book Giveaway -The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James
In this novel, written as a memoir, Jane Austen meets Frederick Ashford, the love of her life. As described by Syrie James, Mr. Ashford is a worthy suitor indeed. He is a gentleman with the intellectual heft and monetary means to keep Jane in as many stimulating conversations, quill pens, and bonnets as she desires.
The Jane Austen Today blog is having a contest to giveaway 2 copies of this book. To enter :
Pretend you are one of Jane Austen's parents. Describe in two or three sentences the kind of gentleman that would be worthy to win Jane's hand in marriage. What sort of man would you accept as a suitable husband for our favorite author?
Then place your description in the comment section. If you feel uncomfortable writing a description, simply list the suitor's attributes. Oh, and you may place an icon of this paragon of husbandhood alongside your description.
The contest is open until January 1. I will then choose the five best answers. Starting January 2, the readers of this blog will have one week to vote for the best suitor!
Let the contest begin!!
