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. 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…
