Hi readers! I am so thrilled to take part in this special giveaway I’m about to share with you!!

As you may have seen, several folks in the Austenesque community have put together a little…actually, it’s not really little…it is a rather large holiday giveaway box! 🎁

The Southern Comfort Holiday Giveaway box combines some lovely Austenesque literature, some Jane Austen fun, and…of course, some Southern comfort and charm!!

The brainchild for this charming idea comes from the lovely Elizabeth Adams! And she corralled several other authors and contributors to participate…including yours truly! I may not be originally from North Carolina, but I think I’ve been here long enough and I love this state dearly enough to call myself a Carolina girl! ❤️

Contributors to The Southern Comfort Giveaway are:

Leigh Dreyer ~ author of The Best Laid Flight Plans

Jack Caldwell ~ author of The Plains of Chalmette

L.L. Diamond ~ author of Unwrapping Mr. Darcy

Samantha Whitman ~ author of Ditching Mr. Darcy

Karen Cox ~ author of Son of a Preacher Man

Christina Boyd ~ editor of Yuletide: A Jane Austen-Inspired Collection of Stories

Beau North ~ author of Longbourn’s Songbird

Elizabeth Adams ~ author of The 26th of November

and yours truly ~ blog mistress of Austenesque Reviews

There is a lovely assortment of prizes in The Southern Comfort Holiday Giveaway!

Plenty of fantastic reads to cozy up with during the new year! 😍

Plus some uniquely southern items that come from a variety of southern states!

Check it out!

    What an awesome idea for a giveaway! So many of the titles are ones on my TBR list. Thanks for the opportunity.


    This is a great selection! Thanks for hosting, Meredith! And thank you for including “The Darcy Monologues” in the giveaway, Elizabeth. Good luck to all.


    Wow! What a wonderful giveaway!



    Beautiful idea and collection of books. Thank you!


    Such a cute giveaway. Love her video!


    What a wonderful giveaway!! Thank you for the chance! 🙂


    Here’s hoping I win.


    Some excellent reads here…a great and fun giveaway…


    What a really lovely Christmas gift! Such fabulous books and great extras. Fortunately I do have most of those books as I live in the UK so don’t qualify. But I would just like to wish all those who do ‘good luck’ and thank all the authors and bloggers for their constant generosity throughout the year. Merry Christmas to all.


    What a superb giveaway idea! I have read some of these titles but not all so it would be lovely addition to my collection. Thank you for the opportunity to throw my hat in the ring so to speak from another southern girl, Texas born and bread.


    This is such a lovely idea!!! I found the southern states particularly welcoming and friendly when I visited last month, and this is just another proof of that 🙂
    Good luck to the giveaway everyone (Meredith you know I should not be included ;))


    I loved this idea when Elizabeth suggested it! Good luck everyone, and Happy Holidays!


    Lovely! Thanks and happy holidays!


    what a lovely giveaway….I consider myself a Southerner….though some dispute if KY is that far South…
    great titles and lovely extras…thanks for the chance to win


    I am so excited for this wonderful giveaway. I think my sister in law would adore all of these products so I would send it to her if I win! She lost her husband several years ago and she finds great comfort in reading any variations of Jane Austen’s classic books. While I read on my Kindle, she loves a real book to hold.


    What a wonderful giveaway. I always love the saying,”bless your heart”. Thanks for the chance to enter. Happy Holidays y’all.


    Thank you so much for participating and blogging, Meredith! Good luck, everyone!


    Lots of lovely things to win, thank you!


    This a wonderful giveaway. Count me in!


    I have read and/or own all those books. Fantastic prizes! I am going to pass on entering the giveaway. But thank you for the generous offer, y’all. My mother was from Mississippi and we often visited relatives in the south while I was growing up. Give me some sugar! Pull up your britches… are phrases that marked a Southern gal or guy as to origins for me.


    Thanks for this lovely giveaway which I would treasure.


    What a wonderful giveaway treat! I’m from Mississippi and would treasure this on my “southern bookshelf” 🙂


    This is our Christmas gift to our fans. Enjoy!


    I’m so honored to be included in this giveaway. Happy Holidays to all our readers!


    Wow! This must be the original “buried treasure” that we’ve all read about in various stories! How fantastic would it be to win! Good luck to all of us who are entering the contest and thank you very much, authors!


    What a wonderful collection of prizes!!! Thanks to all the authors who participated. And, for a chance to win.


    What a great assortment of prizes. Thank you to all that contributed.


    WOW! JUST WOW! How thoughtful and generous ‘y’all are’! Loved your video Elizabeth! Thank you for including Canada in this amazing gifting! Thank you for a chance at winning it! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!


    So excited for the winner – and so excited to join so many fabulous authors in this incredible giveaway!!! <3


    What a wonderful way to begin the New Year. Thank you for all of the contributions and the video.


    Such generous authors and beautiful gifts! Shame I live in the UK!


    You are all amazing, sharing your gift. Thank you for being sooo generous. Happy Holidays to all!


    Happy Holidays everyone and good luck!!!


    Ha! Fun giveaway theme and so many fabulous books and authors participating. I second Elizabeth’s advice to go read them. 🙂


    Okay, an off-the-wall comment here–I’m stunned by the relative thicknesses of the books. For example, I haven’t read Green Card yet (I own it, though) but it’s fatter than A Matter of Chance (which I have read and it’s a fantastic book), so I’ll have to allow a good time for enjoying it. Some of these books are skinny, which means quicker reads. Being friends with a few authors and a frequent buyer of on-sale books means I own a little more than half of these and my TBR list is terribly long. I’m intrigued like crazy about those I haven’t read yet. What a cool giveaway. Northern girls are fascinated with the South!


    What a fabulous giveaway from the most generous authors. Thank you guys. Man, this is one big Christmas Present for some lucky person. Good Luck everyone in the drawing. May the Rafflecopter be nice to you. Thanks Meredith [say hello to Mr. Bingley] for hosting this most excellent post. Wow! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.


    What a great giveaway! Awesome selection of authors as well as treats to savour while you read! Thank you for the chance.


    This is like an ultimate prize pack!!! So many great books and goodies!!!


    So much fun! Thanks for the giveaway! Merry Christmas!


    So much stuff! I want it!!!!!


    Thank you so much to all the authors… this is an awesome package…one of a P & P fan’s dream to have.


    This is the most fun giveaway out there! The coolest name with the coolest Southern authors & books. This girl from Texas is loving it and thanks.


    I see Kentucky represented! That biscuit mix of from a mill near me. Thanks for the amazing contest!!!! *Fingers crossed*


    How fun! Thanks for the chance!


    What an amazingly generous giveaway!! Thank you for the chance to win


    Such an amazing giveaway!! Thank you to all who have contributed!! Hoping to win here, even if I am from Southern California (only 20 miles north of the Mexican border), so that’s pretty darn Southern…just without the lovely drawl and yummy foodstuffs…and Southern culture, and…. 😉
