Thanks, everyone else, who entered. Be sure to enter this week's drawing for 365 Ways to Prepare for Christmas, by David Monn.
It's chock-full of ideas for a crafty, home-made Christmas that are sure to inspire.
What's NewI spoke on Blog Talk Radio with host Carol Topp (*standing in for publisher Felice Gerwitz). If you are a writer, you'll want to listen in as I share tips on building that all-important "Author's Platform" that publishers look for. It's a career boosting experience in 20 minutes. :)
Some of you know
I wrote a Regency Christmas (non-fiction) ebook called,
Regency House Christmas: The Definitive Guide to a Remarkably Regency Yuletide! It's bursting with illustrations, Regency customs, poems, hymns, recipes and more.
So, I buried myself in research and came out with Regency House Christmas. This was a few years ago, before the ebook industry exploded. So it's a PDF, not yet optimal for e-readers. (It can be read on an e-reader but won't have the easy navigation you're accustomed to.)
I keep meaning to update the ebook--they say old habits die hard, and my penchant for collecting information regarding an early 19th Century English Christmas hasn't waned. Therefore, I have much to add. I'm making it a top priority of 2013 to have the new shiny e-book all ready for most e-readers by next year's Christmas season. I wanted to do it for this year, but other writing projects--and life--got in the way.
SO-for right now: If you get a copy of the ebook as is (in PDF) your receipt will entitle you to the new version of the book ABSOLUTELY FREE.* Originally offered for $14.95, it's on SALE for only $9.95.
A FEW of the extras are:
A Regency Feast--Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings, and more--25 pages of historical recipes, quotes and illustrations.
Regency House Christmas Receipt Book-- More Christmas feast recipes that you can freely give away to friends and family. ("Receipt" is the old word for recipe.)
The Prayers of Jane Austen--Did you know that Jane wrote a few special prayers that her father used as part of an Anglican service? They were no doubt read at home around the fire of an evening, too.
Regency Carols--Christmas Hymns of the Day!
English Housewifery Exemplified--173 pages of a 1764 cookbook!
Ho, Ho, Ho Christmas Beverages--an entire ebook with special holiday libations
Illustrated historical stories of the season
And much, much more!
