New Release! THE ROAD AND BEYOND by Marilyn Brant (+ Giveaway) — 30 Comments

  1. Hi Marilyn, I already have Double Dipping, so please don’t enter me for the giveaway, but I just wanted to comment regarding your new book. I loved reading The Road to You so it was great to hear that you’ve done this expanded version. I’m interested to see what happened to Aurora and your excerpt is very intriguing. All the very best with it!

    • Ceri, thank you so much for reading the excerpt, for your good wishes, and for all of the lovely things you’ve said about The Road to You 😉 . Truly, it’s a story that’s very close to my heart, and I’m just thrilled that you enjoyed it!

  2. I often wonder how a character will grow once the book has ended – thank you for this glimpse into the future of Aurora!
    I would love a copy of Double Dipping 😉

    • Anat,
      I’m really glad to hear that this intrigues you, too!! For me, it’s always so fascinating…once I feel I know a character, I find myself imagining them well beyond the confines of the book… 😀

    • Anat,
      Congrats again on being one of the DOUBLE DIPPING winners!
      When you have a moment, please email me with the best email address to send the PDF copy to, or leave me a message here on this post!!

  3. Marilyn, I just wanted to stop by and say good luck with this new release and congratulations!! Wishing you huge success-all the best!

  4. When one has a favourite book and wishes there was more you deliver! But then all our Austen Variation Authors do that with our favourite Jane Austen books! Congratulations and will be adding this one to my ‘wishlist’!!!!

    • Oh, Carole, thank you SO much!! I really hope you’ll like it!
      And I agree that we’re especially lucky here at Austen Variations — so many wonderful releases happening all year long 😀 . As a reader as well as a writer, I appreciate that as well!! XO

  5. Congratulations on your newest release, Marilyn. The excerpt is good and I feel for Aurora. I hope nothing bad happened to Charlie or she will not be able to go through this hell again.

    Double Dipping is the only book that I don’t have in my collection and I’m hoping to win it this time.

  6. Congrats on your new release. I enjoyed Road to You and am looking forward to reading the newer parts. Sounds just as mysterious as the original story.

    • Abigail, thank you!!
      To me, it’s been one of the great joys of indie publishing that we can take risks and try out fresh narrative ideas with our stories. Such a pleasure to get to experiment a little more creatively and give our readers what they ask for 🙂 .

  7. Congrats on the new release, Marilyn! What a good idea to update your book with scenes from the characters’ future. I haven’t read The Road to You or Double Dipping yet (they’re both on my Wish List) but they both sound very interesting.

    Good luck!

    • Thanks, Anji!
      I’m so pleased that you like the idea 😉 . It was a great deal of fun to write those future-Aurora scenes! And I really hope you’ll like both The Road to You (or The Road & Beyond) and Double Dipping when you have time to read them! <3

  8. I’m so excited about this! I can’t wait to read it and see what Aurora and Donovan are like as parents. Will it be available in paperback, too? Just curious. Wishing you lots of success – you know you’re one of my favoritest people in the world! Hugs.

    • Ohhh, my dear Monica, thank you so much! And you’re one of my favoritest people, too!! XOX
      As for the paperback, I’m really hoping it’ll be available in print within a month or two. It’s a question of formatting — whether to keep the scripted journal entries (which are harder to format) or to just use italics (which is simpler but not a cool looking, lol). So, a few technical details need to be decided on and juggled along with the other projects at hand… Will keep you posted! 😀

  9. Would love to read these! My hubs and I will be in Chicago starting tomorrow through Monday celebrating our 40th anniversary! WHAT??? Lol.

    • Wow, Diana!!!
      HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you and your husband! That’s a fantastic milestone. May the two of you have an absolutely amazing, well-deserved celebration (in one of my favorite cities in the world, btw 🙂 ).
      All the best to you both!
      And p.s. – thank you. I hope you’ll enjoy reading the stories!!
