Jae's Birthday Giveaway

It’s my birthday, and since I enjoy giving gifts just as much as receiving them, I thought I would surprise you with a fun birthday giveaway!

I will draw two winners, and each will receive a “book & snacks” box of their choice. 

The winner can request either a signed paperback copy of my latest novel, Bachelorette Number Twelve, or a signed paperback copy of my novel Paper Love

If you prefer an ebook or an audiobook instead of a paperback, I can, of course, make that happen too.

The winners can also choose between two different snack boxes, which you can see below: one box contains treats that are popular in the US; the other one is filled with popular German treats. Anyone can request either snack box, no matter where they live.

I suggest pairing a copy of Paper Love with the German treats since Paper Love is set in Germany, while pairing a copy of Bachelorette Number Twelve with the US snacks because those snacks make an appearance in the book! But feel free to deviate from my recommendation. In the giveaway form, you have the opportunity to choose any book, book format, and snack combination you might prefer–even no snacks at all if you want just the book.

Check out the photos and descriptions of the two books and snack boxes below and then enter the giveaway at the bottom of the page!

Bachelorette Number Twelve bundle

US snack box

The US snack box includes all the road trip treats Regina and Ellie eat in Bachelorette Number Twelve, plus a bookmark.

  • 1 magnetic bookmark with the cover of Bachelorette Number Twelve
  • 2 Twinkies
  • 4 mini M&Ms
  • 2 mini packs of cheddar goldfish crackers
  • 2 Cheetos
  • 1 Twizzlers (strawberry licorice)

Bachelorette Number Twelve:

Warmhearted ER nurse Ellie and icy doctor Regina constantly clash at work. When Regina volunteers at a singles auction, Ellie accidentally bids on her—and ends up winning a date! Soon, the ice between them starts to thaw in this hilarious enemies-to-lovers medical lesbian romance.

German snack box:

The German snack box includes different treats that are popular in Germany, plus a fountain pen (since they are featured prominently in Paper Love).

  • Lamy fountain pen
  • 1 Katjes wine gummies
  • 1 Eszet (bread topping chocolate slices)
  • 1 Giotto (hazelnut-filled waffle balls)
  • 1 Duplo (nougat cream chocolate bar)
  • 2 Yogurette (strawberry chocolates)
  • 1 Hanuta (roasted hazelnuts & chocolate cream between two wafers)
  • 1 Schoko Bons (little chocolate eggs)
  • 1 Milka chocolate bar
  • 1 Ritter Sport brezel chocolate bar
  • 1 Black Forest coffee/cherry chocolate bar

Paper Love: 

Susanne Wolff isn’t thrilled when she’s sent to save her uncle’s stationery store from bankruptcy. The store’s only employee Anja instantly dislikes the digital-loving snob who’s her fill-in boss.

But thanks to a meddling cat, a stationery road trip, and an armada of origami boats, Susanne discovers how sexy pens, notebooks, and certain stubborn employees can be.

Paper Love is set in my hometown, Freiburg in Germany. 

Now that you’ve checked out the books & snack boxes, enter the giveaway by clicking on the button below and filling out a short form. In the form, you can let me know which book, book format, and snacks (if any) you’d like to win.

Anyone can enter, no matter where they live. Entries close on March 21, 2024, at 10 a.m. Central European Time, when I’ll draw the winners using a random number generator. Winners will be notified via email.

Good luck!
