You Are Invited to Celebrate with Me!
It is with great delight that I announce the launch for Mr. Darcy’s Rival! The book started showing up in online booksellers last week, and is now available online on Amazon (paperback and kindle), on Barnes and Noble (paperback and nook), and the iBookstore. It will also be showing up online with other booksellers.
It has been two years since my last book release, which was Pirates and Prejudice. It seems real life has been getting more and more in the way, but it has all been good. This past year brought a granddaughter into our life. I agreed to help out with babysitting two days a week, which then became three, then four, and now has settled down to three. I love it, but I cannot write as prolifically when I have that sweet little girl in my care! Especially as she becomes more mobile.
I have posted several excerpts from Mr. Darcy’s Rival here at Austen Variations which you can read here:
Excerpt from Chapter 1
Excerpt from Chapter 3
Excerpt from Chapter 5
Excerpt from Chapter 5b
Excerpt from Chapter 8
I have also posted nine chapters of A Peculiar Engagement, which is the ‘book in a book’ that Miss Anne de Bourgh has written in my novel. You can read the first chapter here and then follow the links to each successive chapter. I did not include the whole book in Mr. Darcy’s Rival, but merely excerpts from it. (I also did not post the last chapter online, as it would have either given something away in my book or totally confused people. 🙂
I am also offering as a separate giveaway the Pride and Prejudice Journal, where the text of P&P make up the lines of the journal. If you already purchased my book, let me know if you would like to be entered to win this, instead! The link on amazon is here if you want to check it out. This is US only, also.
Please indicate in your comment whether you are US or international, or if you prefer ebook over paperback (if you are US), or if you prefer the journal. The giveaway is open until midnight, Friday, June 12, (EST) and I will announce the winners on Sunday, June 14.
I will be offering giveaways at the other blogs I visit, so be sure to visit those.
