Once upon a time, disguise of every sort was his abhorrence. Now Darcy could barely recall a time when he had not worn a disguise. ~~~
You know the story. It’s 1811, and Bingley has invited Darcy to Netherfield. There are too many Bennet sisters at Longbourn. But every Pride & Prejudice variation needs a change. Wait for it – Napoleon invaded England in 1805. And Darcy is a traitor.
Many of you read the first chapters of my new book (Chap 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) back in December. I’m thrilled to announce it now has a title, cover, and release date. Without further ado, here’s the cover of Conceit & Concealment:Many thanks to my clever reader Sarah who came up with the perfect title! Sarah, you’ll be receiving a free copy of the book and a mention in the acknowledgements.
Oh, you wanted to know the release date, too? 😛 It’s
April 14 delayed 😥 . It’s not up for presale yet because I haven’t written the blurb yet. But soon. I promise. And if you haven’t yet read the first six chapters, what are you waiting for?
I’ll be back in a couple of weeks with more news. And then it’ll be time to move on to a new group writing project, a P&P variation that’s stranger than Napoleon invading England. Stranger than adding dragons to P&P, like in Mr. Darcy’s Dragon by Maria Grace. Stranger than giving Darcy a younger brother named Theo, as in The Darcy Brothers, another group writing project. Stranger than… well, you may just have to wait and see!
Now, back to editing the angst…
Edited to add: I’m very sorry to say the release has had to be delayed because of a recent loss. I’m hoping it’ll still be ready within a few weeks of the date.
