The 12 Days of a Jane Austen Christmas – Snowstorms & Snowdrop — 70 Comments

  1. Loved the little snippet you posted! Of course, I would love to win a copy of your novella, as
    well as the other giveaway. Thank you and have
    a truly happy holiday season.

  2. Enjoyed this excerpt! Another way (besides a blizzard!) to bring these 2 together!

    I just moved away from Boston this summer so recall the hideous amount of snow we had last year! And how tough it was for my patients coming up from the Cape! Hope this year is better for you!

  3. I enjoyed reading this tidbit, and would like to read more of your novella. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy as well as your other offering.

  4. We recently got 2 kittens – they are so much fun to watch. I love how friendly and open they can be. Would love to. E in with a chance for both the book and novella.

  5. Thanks for reminding me about this book. Its time for a re-read. I have been without a cat for many years but I am thinking it is time for another.

  6. Delightful excerpt from your book, Alone with Mr. Darcy. I have both the ebook and audio book of your story, but would love Snowdrop’s Pride and Prejudice blanket. Bless your little Snowdrop and bless you for her loving care. Thank you for another great giveaway.

  7. I would love to win a copy of Alone With Mister Darcy. I have read variations on this theme before, but this one has some unexpected touches and humor, which makes it a winner.

  8. Good to hear that Snowdrop is still surviving till today, Abigail. Since I’m international, I’m vying for the e-book of Alone With Mr Darcy. But if I would like to have Alone With Mr Darcy, can I also request for The Darcys of Derbyshire or I can only choose one only?

    Anyway thank you for the generous offer.

  9. Loved the excerpt thank you. I like that you have your own Snowdrop/Snowball. I hope yours has a long and happy life. Please don’t enter me in the draw as I have the e-book of Alone With Mr Darcy and the paperback of The Darcys of Derbyshire – both greatly enjoyed. Can’t wait for your next one!

  10. I just love your stories and “Alone with mr Darcy” is no exception. I re-read them every now and then. I hope I am lucky to win an audio version of this book.
    Merry Christmas everyone. Xxxx from Sweden

  11. Good morning. I so enjoyed the story, Alone With Mr. Darcy (which I have in ebook format). Thank you for sharing the excerpt and for the generous give away. I am so glad Snowdrop has defied the odds…what a gift she is to you and your family. I also agree that having a milder winter thus far is a relief (no ice skating on the roads to work with the car or shoveling). Please do not count me as one of the first 20, as I already have the ebook of The Darcys of Derbyshire. A sweet, lovely story.

  12. I love your books! Thank you for the excerpt. I’ll definitely buy the novel if I don’t win. Please ebook for me (international). Love to Snowdrop 😉

  13. Thank you fro the story. I have already read the book and loved it. I have also read the other book. I tend to get them as soon as they come out. But I would love a copy of your novella.
    I can’t seem to get too much in the spirit of the Season. Too warm here in Georgia also, and the snow can stay away…Atlanta doesn’t handle it well. Have a wonderful Holiday!

  14. I may be too late for The Darcy’s of Derbyshire, but I really enjoyed Alone with Mr. Darcy. The excerpt was an excellent reminder.

  15. I loved reading Alone with Mr. Darcy and yes, last winter was brutal. The one before as well. Yesterday in Indiana we had 62 degrees. I love El Nino. If I’m in the first 20 I’ll go for the Darcy’s of Derbyshire. Thanks, Jen

  16. I can’t resist joining, for a chance to win the lovely blanket that Snowdrop loves so much! I just re-read Alone with Mr Darcy 2 weeks ago and this is one of my favorite scenes! I already have Darcy’s of Derbyshire- another lovely novella though.

  17. Purrs back to Snowdrop. Love the excerpt. Takes me back! Thank you for the giveaway. I have ebooks of both books, but would love a chance to win the blanket.

  18. I own copies of all your books. Most are paperbacks. But would love to win the blanket. If not I would like to purchase it. So where do I find it? As Ruth said – time for a re-reading of your latest.

    • I actually had the blankets made on Zazzle because everything I could find with that cover was all blurred from enlargement. I got carried away and spent a couple of days on photoshop cleaning up an enlargement so that it was crisp and clean. They’re kind of pricey even at the minimum markup Zazzle allows, but if you get on the Zazzle mailing list, they go on sale fairly regularly. Often there’s a 20% off sale, and if you’re patient, sometimes there’s 40-50% off. There are three sizes – the middle one is Snowdrop’s blanket.

  19. The blanket. I would love a chance to win the blanket. I loved both of those books and own them. Now, I need to re-read Alone with Mr. Darcy! 🙂

  20. I think it’s time for a re-read of Alone With Mr. Darcy! I have all your books, Abigail, and I love them dearly. Please enter me in the blanket giveaway only.

    Looking forward to your next novel!

    Merry Christmas!

  21. Thanks for the giveaway, but I have the e-book of ‘Alone With Mr. Darcy’. I too would be interested in knowing where you get the fleece blanket though!

    My daughter brought home a feral kitten that was pushed out of the litter. She was so tiny and a beautiful tortoise shell colour. We named her ‘Tumbles’ and she was the most anti-social cat to all but us. She even kept our dog in line! She loved climbing into my daughters boots that she always wore to the horse barn.
    Glad to hear Snowdrop is still giving ‘the love’.

  22. We on the West Coast are at a decided disadvantage in gaining prizes based on posting times. I should have checked my mail before heading to bed at 3:00 a.m. after grading essays half the night. 😉

    I was just thinking of re-reading Alone with Mr. Darcy which I bought last winter and absolutely LOVE. 🙂 So, this California girl up in the blustery mountains would love a mini-throw. 😀

    Wishing you a blessed Advent,
    Susanne 🙂

  23. Loved the excerpt from Alone with Mr. Darcy. I would certainly like to have a copy of the novella but I might be to late. Oh well, I’ll take a chance anyway. And the fleece blanket would be great too.

  24. Great excerpt – and I understand the white cat hair issue! Would love to have either of the books, if possible.

    Thank you for sharing!

  25. I can’t believe I don’t have this book as I love your books and have most of them. I would love to have it. Happy holidays to you and Snowdrop!

  26. I guess I got up too late after editing until the early hours of morning to be among first twenty. Oh, well! Perhaps I’ll just have to settle for a book or dream really large and settle for the beautiful blanket. lol

    I like seeing interactions with animals in the P&P stories. They are such a part of my own life that it”s difficult for me to understand when others can and don’t have them.

    Your stories delight me. Thank you for the pleasure.

  27. Hi Abigail,

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I already have, and have read and enjoyed, “Alone with Mr. Darcy” and “The Darcys of Derbyshire”, but the blanket sounds fantastic.

  28. I enjoyed the excerpt. Alone With Mr. Darcy is still on my tbr list! Would also love a copy of the novella if any are still available. Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. I have a sneaky suspicion I’m getting Alone with Mr Darcy for Christmas. I would love to have a copy of The Darcys of Derbyshire,
