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 AustenProse.com….
(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.
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
In order to qualify, simply visit my Etsy shop to browse the available prints, then leave a comment below stating which print you’d like to win …and why.
Maybe you need a gift for your mother-in-law who loves cats, and one of my portraits looks identical to hers?
Does one of my cat characters remind you of a childhood pet?
I love to hear your cat stories!
The deadline is February 14th ~ Valentine’s Day ~ at 11:59PM PT. On Wednesday morning (2/15) I’ll announce the winner here on my blog, who will be selected via a random number generator.
Please leave an e-mail address with your comment, so I will be able to notify the winner.
Note: This contest is now closed.
Congratulations, Ginger! You will be receiving a matted print of Jane Bennet ~ Autumn at Longbourn. :)

Still several hours' worth of painting ahead, but "Beauty & the Beast" is beginning to come to life. http://ift.tt/2q8tPQx
