Double Book Launch and Giveaway! — 41 Comments

  1. These books sound really interesting and I would love to be entered in the giveaway for a set of the print copies (I do not have a Kindle).
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. This is quite an intriguing premise. I can recall “crossroad” instances in my own life, and have wondered how certain things would have turned out. Please enter me in the giveaway for a Kindle set of copies.

  3. These books look just like my ‘cup of tea’ . A chance to see where a second chance can lead. Looking forward to reading these two even if I don’t win. Thank you.

  4. These sound really good. I often wonder how my life would have turned out if I had made different decisions at times. It’s very intriguing. Thanks so much for the giveaway and good luck with both books.

  5. This looks like a really interesting series. That’s what I so love about all the Jane Austen variations: change one thing and you get a totally different story. I would love to read these books; I love Darcy & Lizzy, but it’s also nice to read something else once in a while! Thanks for the giveaway, I would love to win a paperback set (I don’t have a Kindle).

  6. These books sound very intriguing. Will your soulmate always be your soulmate if you change your destination? I would love a modern story for a change. Thank you for a chance to enter the giveaway.

  7. Many of you know that because of anesthetic complications, I limit my reading to P&P stories and have read well over a thousand of them that I own, plus KU and FF copies. I was leary of this series, but at the same time I could not resist Shannon’s writing, which I consider exquisite. Fortunately, the two books can be read out of order without affecting the pleasure, so I started with the second book. I confess: I was hooked and moved on to the second read/first book. And I’m eagerly waiting for the next many in the series. I suspect you will be as well.

    We’ve heard of nunneries. Are there “writeries” to which we can commit our favorite authors, so they can devote hours each day to their talent? I have a list of several people I’d like to send.. . .Or perhaps I’m being greedy for more of the best works of this genre. But if not, pack your bags, Shannon.

    • You’re very sweet, Betty, and I would love to take you up on your offer to send me to a “writery.” I always have more stories in me than I have time to write them!

  8. I am also a huge fan of this idea and have always been drawn to stories that have this premise. So I am so excited about these books and have placed them on my wishlist. Thanks for the giveaway.

  9. My collection of JA Fanfic books has been growing. The new shelving was required. I’am admitting that I’am addicted. I only have one book of your-The Darcys of Pemberley but have 3 others on my kindle. Please keep writing. I was hoping since the 7th is my birthday. I would be lucky and win.

  10. The books sound awesome. And hearing that you worked on them for so long is admirable. Best wishes with your new publications. Jen Red

  11. Time travel stories has often intrigued me. If only we were truly offered the chance to make the changes in life our rearview 20/20 vision gives us. I wouldn’t mind a P&P story a long those same lines…with having the beginning run true to Jane’s original then adding a mysterious step back in time! You definitely have my interest with these two new books, Shannon. Enter my name in the drawing please…

  12. These sound fascinating. I’ve experienced too many weird coincidences in my life to believe that there’s no such thing as fate. Little nothing events somehow seem to conspire to lead to something bigger… something that’s intended to be. Congrats on the double release!

  13. Congratulations on the publication of your books! I have always wondered about a couple of crossroads in my life and wondered how it would have changed if I had done something different. Amazing how one little thing can make such a big impact. Thank for the chance to win copies!

  14. Both of these books sound absolutely wonderful, Shannon!! Congratulations on their publication at long last!! Yay!!! Celebrating with you!!! \o/

    Crossing my fingers that I can win a Kindle set! Such a generous give-away!!

    Thank you!

    Susanne 🙂

  15. First, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Second, I will take that ‘leap of faith’ with you as I have enjoyed everything you have written!

    My husband and I were recently talking about what if paths that our parents had taken, would we still meet…things are meant to happen a certain way…

    I am not on on any of the social media sites other than Goodreads. Thank you for the chance to win these books!

  16. ‘What if….’ Your premise of ‘the results of choice’ and possible alternate ‘outcomes’ grabbed both my memory and my imagination. At age 86 I can look back over my own life and see the moments that, insignificant at the time, eventually proved to be keys to my future. Your books may offer glimpses into others lives but also bring to mind a contemplation of our own ‘life story’. I would love to read them and share your offered ‘book bounty’ on my FaceBook page. Thanks.

  17. Sounds very interesting as we all have crossroads in our lives. Some of us find the correct special someone to spend the rest of our days right away and know it right from the beginning while some folks have a hard time with many crossroads to find the right one! This does seem like it will be a big success since it will be intriguing to read and see the “what ifs” that are in the novel.
    THanks for the giveaway and best wishes with the series!

  18. I think this concept sounds amazing. How many of us long for mulligans in life? I mean really! I would love the Kindle version!

    • I’ve never won anything but I would love to be entered in the draw LOL. Either way thank you for the lovely books you have written and I will be loving these ones

  19. I love second chances and while there are things in my life I’ve always wondered “what if” about, it always scares me that the one thing I change would change too much about my here and now. Perhaps I’m just too happy?

  20. These sound like fantastic stories! Just one moment to do over… what a tough choice, when it’s easy to name a dozen or more events that I’d like to do over. Now, is there going to be another book, to make this a trilogy? “Leap of Love” to finish the 1Corinthians verse.

  21. It sounds like you were still able to weave Regency England into one of your books so the research for your JAFF writings paid off! I love the premise of these books. It is scary to think of “what if” we made other choices. Thank you for the incredible giveaways.

  22. I love the second chance idea of the books and would really enjoy reading them both. Thanks for sharing with us and the chance to win them!

  23. I find this new concept (or should I say concepts?) very interesting. I hope I would get very lucky and win them!

  24. A bit behind the times, I know, but having a major catchup on my blog reading right now. I appreciate I’ve missed the giveaway but as I already have copies of both books, I just wanted to pop in to wish you somewhat belated best wishes and good luck with the launch, Shannon.

    The college A vs college B is something that could so easily have happened to me. College A in Yorkshire or college B in Bath. Most other Janeites wouls have jumped at college B, I’m sure, but having visited both universities, looked at the style of course on offer for my chosen degree (pharmacy), the accomodation available for students etc. I chose college A in Bradford, West Yorkshire. It also had the better reputation in my subject I discovered. There, I met my future husband and we’ll be celebrating our ruby wedding anniversary this year, so absolutely no regrets about it whatsoever, but I very occasionally wonder what would have happened if I’d have gone to Bath instead.

    Looking forward now to reading Leap of Faith, which I’ll be starting later today. Leap of Hope was wonderful!
