A Valentine’s Day Giveaway ~ Win a Free 8×10 Matted Print!

Regency Cat greeting card, Jane Bennet Cat by Tara Fly

I haven’t forgotten that Valentine’s Day is this Tuesday… even though I haven’t been actively promoting my work lately.

A quick remedy: a framed print of Mr. Darcy Cat would make a cute Valentine’s Day gift, especially in the company of a beautiful greeting card (like Miss Jane Bennet above) from my Etsy shop.

But I’m feeling generous towards the online community after winning two blog giveaways:
Cat’s Pride sent me a box of their Fresh’n’Light cat litter and a Petsmart gift-card, AND donated 150 lbs. of litter to my local animal shelter…
Also, I won a copy of “Willoughby’s Return” (a Sense and Sensibility sequel written by Jane Odiwe) through a giveaway on Laurel Anne’s blog….
(I’m waiting until after I finish HP & the Deathly Hallows, which will be shortly, to begin reading it)

On a side note: It will be so refreshing to revisit the admirable Colonel Brandon, after suffering through the duplicitous Snape, both of whom always take the guise of Alan Rickman in my mind. LOL

I was delighted to learn that a historical romance author, Linda Anne Wulf, used a photograph of me on the cover of her latest book, “Heart of the Hunter”.

This was an image taken in 2008, during one of my Medieval photo-shoots with Joe, at Hagerstown City Park. It had been gathering dust in my Deviantart stock model account, which I haven’t updated in years… when Linda’s cover designer chanced upon it.
Although I don’t generally read romance novels, I plan to make an exception just this once. ;)

But you would rather hear about this Giveaway of mine, right?

Alright… it’s quite simple really.

Giveaway Details

I am offering (1) 8″x10″ print ~ the WINNER’S CHOICE ~ in a coordinating mat measuring 11″x14″. The winner will need to supply their own 11″x14″ frame, as shipping glass safely gives me headaches. LOL

    Ok, so I thought I would enter. I’d like to win Africat as a gift to my Valentine, jason because she reminds me of his favorite cat, Star. Star and I didn’t always get along. I think she wanted Jason all to herself. She often “dive bombed” me, to use Jason’s words, jumping onto my head all the way from the top of his wardrobe when I was sleeping beside him. She also thought it was great fun to attempt sitting on my plate whenever Jason and I ate together. Despite our sometimes less than warm feelings toward each other, we were actually united in both loving and being completely devoted to Jason. Star passed away a couple years ago, and I know she left a great void in Jason’s life. Strangely enough, I miss her, too. I can look back on our squabbles and smile now; I respect her for loving Jason with all her heart, just like I do.
