Giveaway - Jane Austen's Sanditon AND The World of Sanditon

Oh my gosh - I have the most amazing giveaway for Jane Austen fans!!

This new release of Jane Austen's Sanditon goes on sale December 10/19. "In the vein of Downton Abbey, Jane Austen’s beloved but unfinished masterpiece-often considered her most modern and exciting novel-gets a spectacular second act in this tie-in to a major new limited television series."

From Grand Central Publishing:

"Written only months before Austen’s death in 1817, Sanditon tells the story of the joyously impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood and her spiky relationship with the humorous, charming (and slightly wild!) Sidney Parker. When a chance accident transports her from her rural hometown of Willingden to the would-be coastal resort of the eponymous title, it exposes Charlotte to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make, and the characters whose fortunes depend on its commercial success. The twists and turns of the plot, which takes viewers from the West Indies to the rotting alleys of London, exposes the hidden agendas of each character and sees Charlotte discover herself… and ultimately find love. " "Now, author Kate Rioirdan has finished the novel so fans can read it right before the release of Masterpiece’s brand new TV adaption starring Rose Williams and Theo James! Read an excerpt of Sanditon.

And that's not all..... I also have a copy of The World of Sanditon: The Official Companion by Andrew Davies and Sara Sheridan to give away!

From Grand Central Publishing:

"An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of Jane Austen’s Sanditon television series.

Sanditon, the final novel Austen was working on before her death, has been given an exciting conclusion, and will be brought to a primetime television audience on PBS/Masterpiece for the very first time by Emmy and BAFTA Award winning screenwriter Andrew Davies (War & Peace, Mr. Selfridge, Les Misérables, Pride and Prejudice).

This, the official companion to the Masterpiece series, contains everything a fan could want to know. It explores the world Austen created, along with fascinating insights about the period and the real-life heartbreak behind her final story. And it offers location guides, behind the scenes details, and interviews with the cast, alongside beautiful illustrations and set photography. Read an excerpt of The World of Sanditon.

And one lucky reader is going to win a copy of each book! Enter for a chance to win using the Rafflecopter form below. Open to US and Canada, ends December 7/19.

Thanks for doing the giveaway! I love Jane Austen but haven't read Sandition yet, I was never sure which edition to get, so even if I don't win this giveaway, I'm glad to have heard about this version that gives insight into the miniseries, too.
