It'll be Jane Austen's Birthday soon, it'll be next Friday December 16th. Are you ready to celebrate with My Jane Austen Book Club?

Katherine Cox at November's Autumn and I have joined forces and invited authors and bloggers to a great Soiree in order to celebrate dear Jane's Birthday all together in friendliness and joy.

There will be thirty-one blogs/sites participating in the event and each of them  will run a different giveaway contest. Each blogger will post a "gift" for Jane Austen on that day. You will have the chance to hop from blog to blog and enter as many giveaways as you can.

We'll wait for you all on 16th. Spread the word. The more, the merrier!

I'd love to participate if it's not too late - I'm a needlework designer and have lots of Jane-inspired patterns. I'm releasing an exclusive design on the 16th - if you want to email me, please do!
