CLOSED Giveaway: Barbara Tiller Cole book of choice!

In a couple of days, I'm get to share with you guys an awesome guest post from Barbara Tiller Cole about the impact Jane Austen can have on one's life (or hers, in particular). But until then, Barbara wanted to give you a chance to win her books!

But before I get into that, I wanted to point you in the direction of something awesome that Barbara is involved in: the Jane Austen extravaganza going on at the Deactur Book Festival! She's got a whole bunch of info up on her site, Darcyholic Diversions, but basically, it's wall to wall Jane (and I am jealous). 28 Austenesque authors are participating, they're having a whole host of events, and really, it doesn't take much more than the mention of "book + festival" or "jane + austen" to pique any of our interests, right?  (So in other words, if you're anywhere near Georgia, you should be going to this, but if not... Barbara is having all kinds of cool stuff on Darcyholic Diversions to tie in!)

About the Books:
Fitzwilliam Ebenezer Darcy
Amazon | Goodreads
152 pages
‘Christmas Carol' A Jane Austen/Charles Dickens crossover story, 'Fitzwilliam Ebenezer Darcy' takes the best of both classics and spins them into a delightful Holiday treat! F.E. Darcy has fallen into pitiful self-loathing and sorrowful angst-ridden despair; all of this due to his belief that he has lost forever the chance to marry the only woman he has ever loved—Elizabeth Bennet. Seeing her son in such a state, the Ghost of Anne Darcy reaches out to him; informing him that three ghosts would visit him and give him hope. Will these Spirits provide him with the courage to try again to win the esteem of his one true soul mate? Barbara Tiller Cole, an Atlanta native and the writer of the popular book 'White Lies and Other Half Truths', presents this family friendly classic—a delightful combination of the best of her two favorite authors, Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. Barbara credits her parents with fostering a love for both of these authors. Each Christmas, Barbara’s father would sit and read Dicken’s classic 'A Christmas Carol' to the family. Her mother consistently challenged her to improve her mind by extensive reading, Jane Austen style. This book is dedicated to the memory of Cliff and Jeanne and the season they loved the best.

White Lies
Amazon | Goodreads
220 pages
Barbara Tiller Cole shines a comedic, sexy light on the characters of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, turning it into a delightful romp. Open the pages and take a look at maiden fears, the consequences of white lies, and the hope for redemption. If Fitzwilliam Darcy were alive today he would say, "If Jane Austen had written a Regency Sex Manual, this would be it!" Elizabeth Bennet would have said, "A fun, light, sexy yarn! What I would give to be taught by Professor Darcy!" Take a delightful journey with your beloved characters as you read this delightful farce!

Adventures of a Darcyholic!
Coming late Fall, 2012!
It is a proven fact that when a man or woman become obsessed with an object of desire, particularly when that personification is a fictional character such as one Fitzwilliam Darcy, it may be necessary to surrender and admit defect to intervention, and seek help when simple infatuation becomes an addiction. In Adventures of a Darcyholic our hero and heroine have a deep need to find some balance in their lives. Is support available to assist them to find a path back to normal? But then again, if Darcy is the problem do they wish for a cure?
