Last month Nicole Clarkston published a new North and South variation called Northern Rain which I could not resist to buy and read as soon as I heard about it.
I had been a fan of Nicole Clarkston’s work for a while but had never spoken with her so this new release was the trigger for me to finally contact her. I’m very glad I did because after getting to know her, I discovered she is one of the nicest, sweetest, funny and creative authors I have known.
I fell incredibly blessed to have had the chance to know her, and to have her as a guest in my blog for the first time with a vignette she wrote especially for From Pemberley to Milton.
Her visit was prior to the blog tour that started on the 8th of July and in which I will also participate with a character interview on the 18th, and she brought with her a very generous offer of 4 e-book copies of Northern Rain and one signed paperback.
The blog tour is still on going and will bring you a lot of new vignettes, interviews, excerpts and giveaways, but today I’m very glad to announce the winners of this pre blog tour giveaway:
*** Mary ***
***Joana Starnes ***
*** Vesper ***
Congratulations everyone! I hope you enjoy the book and share your thoughts with all of us once you’ve read it 🙂 If you are curious about my opinion, I will be posting a review on the 25th of July with another giveaway (did I mention Nicole Clarkston is a very generous author?). So, if you are not one of the lucky winners, there is still a chance 🙂
May I ask the lucky winners to please send me your e-mail contacts to ritaluzdeodato at gmail so that I can pass them along to Mrs. Clarkston for the Books to be sent to you.
