Happy New Year!
It’s hard to believe it is 2018. It seems each year passes more quickly than the last! But being January 1, we at Jane Austen Variations want to continue a tradition we have had during this month, and that is Jane in January.
We like changing things up a bit, however, so this year, in addition to focusing on Jane Austen, we are also focusing on YOU! Thus, we are calling it Jane in January and You. Last year we began a monthly feature highlighting and getting to know one of our readers. But we have so many, we thought this could be a way to get to know more of you.
So this month, in our Jane in January and You posts, the authors will be asking questions of our readers that has something to do with Jane Austen or her books. There are going to be a variety of questions, and we would encourage each of you to answer when you have the opportunity. That way we can get to know you a little better, and… there will be a giveaway associated with each JinJ&Y post. The gift will be determined by the author, announced in the post, and a name will be randomly drawn from amongst the commenters a week later. The winner’s name for each post will be posted on our facebook group page, as well as on the author’s original post. Just an FYI, most of the JinJ&Y will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but there will be regular posts as well. Look for the special JiJ&Y image at the top of the page.
As we begin this New Year, we want to thank you all for being such a special part of our lives. We hope 2018 will be a year of joyful blessings to you all!
