Welcome to the 2nd Annual Just Jane 1813 “The Twelve Days of jane” event. I have been looking forward to this event for the past several months and I hope my anticipation matches the pleasure you receive from the next twelve posts.
Why another “The Twelve Days of Jane” event? That’s easy to answer. First, and foremost, I love saying “Thank you,” and “Happy Holidays” to my readers around the globe for being such dedicated Just Jane 1813 readers as we share our love for Jane Austen and all of the wonderful JAFF inspired by her stories. Secondly, holiday JAFF just makes me feel good! When I first discovered JAFF, I fell in love with it, and when I found holiday JAFF stories, I knew I found a special niche in this subgenre that I wanted to share with my readers. Lastly, the holiday season is such a memorable time of the year. It doesn’t matter what holiday you celebrate this season, I believe this is a special time of year to come together and reaffirm our pleasures in the small wonders in our lives. It’s a time to cherish memories made with family and friends in a way that can only be savored this unique time of the year.
Thank you for joining me again this year, as we being today with our first post of this event, where I will share reviews, excerpts, recipes, shopping ideas, and all things Austen related to celebrating this wonderful time of the year!
To make this event even sweeter, I am offering a giveaway of one of my very own favorite finds from 2016; a pair of Plantronics wireless headphones, which will be given away to one Just Jane 1813 reader, along with one JAFF audiobook of your choice, from Audible. All you have to do to enter this special giveaway is leave a comment on every post on this blog from December 1-12, 2016. Just think of it as your way of saying “Hello” to us every day during this event and letting me know what you think about each post. At midnight, ET, on December 15th, I will select the winner of these headphones and JAFF audiobook from the names of the readers who commented on each post, and on December 16, 2016, I will announce the winner of these awesome headphones.
Please feel free to check out these details regarding these headphones here from Amazon. I wear these every single day as I listen to audiobooks, music, or talk on my phone, all while I enjoy the freedom afforded to me as I wear these wireless headphones. They hold an eight-hour charge, which means I charge them every couple of days. If I had a gift list like Oprah’s, this would be the first item I would mention; therefore, I wanted to treat one lucky Just Jane 1813 reader to a pair of these wonderful headphones! This giveaway is also open to international readers.
I’d love it if you would share this event on your social media pages so that lots of other readers can join the fun again this year! Please accept my wishes to you and yours for a healthy and happy holiday season and thank you for making Just Jane 1813 a cherished part of your day throughout the entire year.
