A Four Book Giveaway!

This week is the official release of For Elise, and, along with the fancy traveling launch party this Friday and Saturday (more info under the events icon on the left), I will be throwing a little online party leading up to this weekend's festivities.

No dress code.
No invite needed.
No socializing (because this is not something writers generally excel at).

Just some fun prizes and giveaways and a very subdued bit of Wahooing.

If you are on facebook, follow along with the fun at my FB author page beginning Monday, Sept 1st: https://www.facebook.com/SarahMEden and watch for contests & prizes to pop up throughout the week. (Don't worry about catching them the moment they appear; every contest will run for a day or two & winners will be selected randomly and not based on who answered first.)
  • Not on Facebook? That's okay. I'll post the contests here as well and include any comments from the various contest posts in the drawings.
So *cue drum roll* the first giveaway of the week...

Four Regency Romances

  • For Elise, by you-know-who
  • Becoming Lady Lockwood, by my sweet friend Jennifer Moore
  • The Stranger She Married, by another lovely friend Donna Hatch
  • Frederica, by a lady I like to pretend is my very dear friend despite the fact that she died before I was even born, the mother of the modern Regency romance, Georgette Heyer

To enter...

If you could travel to any place and time, where & when would you go?

Leave your answer in the comments (here and/or on FB https://www.facebook.com/SarahMEden ). A winner will be randomly chosen from amongst all those who comment.
Contest closes Tuesday, Sept 2, 12:00pm MDT.
US & Canada only, please.

Canada-Prince Edward Island- to meet Anne Shirley and Gil

I think I would travel to England in the late 1700s early 1800s for starters. To get the chance to see some of these places that we only have pictures of now . . . The balls and lavish gowns, the estates and castles, the English gardens. Such a romantic time period, but one I'm not sure would live up to the hype in my mind. :)

Tonya said...

I love to be transported back to the 1800s
In England or Italy. I try to go there as often as possible through books like these! Thank you for writing such amazing clean romances!

Alyssa and Eddy said...

I would love to go and experience what life was like back in the Regency Era. I would be interesting to see how different life was like.

The Clews Crew said...

Regency England! I want to go to a ball!

charchenko_1 said...

I agree with the majority--Regency England IF I could be upper class, 1845 Nauvoo or 34 AD american continent--but if I would also love to visit Jerusalem in just about any period in time because there is SO much history to that city!

Brooke said...

I would go to pre civil war south. It has always fascinated me.

sarahpat said...

The place I've ever most wanted to go is Paris, France. But the time period I most want to visit would be the regency era, England.

Chelle said...

Oh, this is so hard. I always say I was born in the wrong era. When I turned 30 I had a roaring 20s party, and became fascinated with that era. But I LOVE poodle skirts and rock and roll too! As for the 1800s I think that's a no-brainer, since it seems so romantic!!! Ahhh! Too hard.

Leslie Waters said...

I would love to be in Regency Ear in England, but only if I had a large Downey and my daddy had a title so I could be picking about my suitors.

Shawna K said...

Anywhere, and almost any time period! I love to travel and always find something interesting where ever I am blessed to go!

Danielle said...

I would love to be present during Christ's reign on Earth. Or to be in the Americas after His resurrection. Either would be amazing!

Rachel said...

I would love to meet my great great grandmother who came across the plains, 1850's, she was a real treasure!

Lizzie Justice said...

I would love to spend some time in Regency England. I would want to go to a dance, paint a beautiful landscape, and listen to people play the pianoforte.

Cassandra Elizondo said...

Ahh! Hard question!! I think I would love the late 1800's- Little House on the Prairie style. I love me a cowboy! But I also love the regency era, so either one would make me a happy camper!!

HM Butterfield said...

If I could travel anywhere in the world it would be to England or France! I would love going there. But the time period I would love to live in is during the early pioneers and hand cart pioneers! I would just love that!!!

Valerie Stewart said...

Anne of green gables time would be fantastic!

Gramma Cyddie said...

I can't think of any place and time i would rather live than right here and now. but i would definitely want a visit to the time of Jane Austen and the setting of many of your wonderful books!!!

Shawnee Larsen said...

I would love to live in Jane Austen's time. I never tire of reading the language of her day. I would love to be able to speak the way they did.

Jane Rowberry said...

I would travel to London England in the beginning of the 19th century, during the industrial revolution. I would also like to go to New York during the roaring twenties.

Rachel said...

Either the obvious answer of regency England, where I might find a Mr. Darcy or Mr. Knightly; or the forties, LOVE the fashion!

Brenda Lee Hansen said...

Regency England would be amazing to visit...

anoushish said...

I think it would be a blast to visit the United States after WWI, but before WWII, in that period of time before the Great Depression, when life was light and the world had just concluded "the war to end all wars." It seems that this period of time was infused with the excitement of possibility and independence.

Ashley Hansen said...

Switzerland during the 1800s. Who doesn't love cowbells and Frankenstein?

Mei Li Moore said...

I would love to go back to the Middle Ages where your man would wear your silk scarf on his sleeve when he left home for the day. And I would wear long skirts stitched with gauze and lace and sing love songs all day on the mandolin as my children sat at my feet sewing and carving beautiful things for our home.

Allerednic said...

London, England, during the Regency Era! Easy :)

Marcy x said...

even though i love to read about Regency England, i would not want to live during that time. If one was not of noble birth, it would be a pretty hard life. I think i would go back to the 1950's.

Stephanie said...

I think I would travel to the Medieval time period to a castle in England or another European country.

Heather said...

Too many choices! I echo many of the others...PE Island around the turn of the century, Regency England, pre-civil war South, Revolutionary New England....but if I had to pick just one, it would probably be Regency England. :)

Heather said...

Nauvoo in 1844 would be fascinating.

Melissa Sheffield said...

I would love to travel to the highlands of Scotland. I would want to explore old places and historical sites. I'm not sure about a different era. I'm pretty amazed by mine.

Winnie Thomas said...

I'd love to go to Scotland or England in the early 1800s. Thanks for writing your lovely books. I'm enjoying reading them.

askauntalice said...

I'd love to go back and talk with my great-grandparents and see if they could clear up some family history mysteries for me!

ALIandDREW said...

Wales, United Kingdom. No contest. One of the most beautifully photographed places EVER... I know I belong there. Now to convince my husband...

Kaitlin Smith said...

Regency England of course!
Who wouldn't want to be wooed by swoon worthy gentlemen and get to wear awesome dresses on a daily basis?

Debbie said...

I'd love to live in England when Queen Victoria ruled.

Sally T. said...

1880s in Texas to meet my great great grandmother.

Marla Bailey said...

British Isles and then hop over to Greece.

Heidi Grange said...

I would love to go to New Zealand in the current day.

Laura Hartness said...

So hard to choose--- I would have to say, I'd love to go to the time of Christ and hear him preach in person.

Option #2: The 1940s, so I could see my grandparents (never met my paternal grandfather) and see my parents as children

Option #3: Regency England, of course!!

oldladyshana said...

I would choose Italy and the time of Michaelangelo. I would love to see him create!

Carissa May said...

Maybe the prairie with the pioneers or Laura Ingalls Wilder. Loved her books growing up.

J Dawn King said...

I would love to travel back to 1979 so I could fall in love with my husband of almost 35 years again. He is the best man I know.

I live in Ecuador until next Saturday. We are moving back to Oregon then.

Sarah said...

I would love to go to the 1700-1800's anywhere in Great Britain. I'd have to 2nd the other comments about Anne of Green Gables. Would love to go to that setting too.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Cassi said...

Regency England would be fun. But just to visit for a day or so! I'm too grateful for modern medicine and technology! :)

Nathanael said...

I would love to go to Italy or England. I'm not picky on the when...just would love to go.

Amanda Clark said...

IRELAND - that's where my family originated from, and it's rumored that we had a castle once upon a time! I would love to see that!

Karyn said...

I'd like to the future, and see Jesus come.

Tiffany said...

Ireland in the spring time any year except those of the big famine

Courtney & Zach Drennan said...

I'm with Karyn, on facebook I said regency time period, but to go in the future and see Christ come, that would be awesome!

Brynnan said...

I dream of being in London in 1815 to have my own season!

Sara Smith said...

I love the regency period but I am too find of modern conveniences so I would go all over Europe now :)

S.P. Bowers said...

I like my own time and place too much to leave it permanently but if I could just visit for a little while there are so many times and places I would visit. 19th century Russia to start with.

Anna said...

Denmark, 1850, among a farming community.

Michael-Ann McAfee said...

I wouldn't want to live at any other time, but I would love to visit several times and places in history like the roaring 20's in America, the 1800's in England or Scotland, Italy during the Renaissance...etc.

jodi said...

I would like to go back to the 30's and meet my grandparents and get to know my mother as a young woman.

BrandonandNatalie said...

I would love to experience life during the Regency Era for a time. I wouldn't want to live in that time permanently. However, I would love to attend a few ball before I left!

Cindy Hogan said...

So excited for this book! Send me to Germany in Medieval times...with magic

Russia during the golden age.

Semi short Chic said...

Congrats on the new release! I would want to visit the Regency Era so I can wear some of those fabulous dresses! But only for a little while, I'd miss my blue jeans and yoga pants. hehehe

VintageVibes said...

London in the 1950s so I could go shopping! :D

Megan said...

I would want to go to France now because I love our plumbing and hotels, but I would want everyone to pretend that it was regency times so we could all dress up.

Trenton Crump said...

I would love go to the to the time of Jane Austen and meet her. That would be amazing!

Sue Burton said...

I'd go back about eight years to Orem's WalMart and pick up a few more of the exercise pants I now can't find anywhere. Then I'd come home and look in my mirror and hope to see myself holding a warm pair of socks with a Georgette Heyer book tucked under my arm.

Becca Kesler said...

I would love to travel back to 1840ish and meet Emma Smith. She and Joseph traveled so much, but I would like to visit her while in the John Johnson home located in Hiram, Ohio. I have always been inspired by her devotion and service to the Gospel. Her heart was pure gold!

Veray said...

I'm not sure when that would be. I love the long dresses and hats of the regency times, but I don't think I could deal with all the other stuff like not being able to do things because you are a woman and such. I love the freedoms of our time and it would be hard to be without them. I do love reading about those time though and living vicariously through them. That is the best!
