Becoming Elizabeth Darcy - Free on Kindle

On November 27, 28, and 29, my time-travel novel, Becoming Elizabeth Darcywill be available for free download on Amazon. Here is description from the back jacket:

In 2011, American Elizabeth Hannigan, suffering from the flu, falls into a coma and wakes up in the bed and body of Elizabeth Bennet Darcy. Beth soon realizes that the only way back to her life in the 21st Century is through the Master of Pemberley, Jane Austen's Fitzwilliam Darcy. But first she must uncover the dark secret that brought her to Pemberley in 1826 in the first place.

Becoming Elizabeth Darcy is a story of love, loyalty, and loss, where a modern woman is called upon to resolve the problems of Jane Austen's most beloved couple. If you are a fan of Lost in Austen, you will enjoy the time-travel novel, Becoming Elizabeth Darcy.


However, you do not have to be a Jane Austen devotee to enjoy Becoming Elizabeth Darcy. Please tell your friends.

A reminder: The sale of the Mr. Darcy's Bite for $1.99 on Nook and Kindle ends on November 30.

A Killing in Kensington, a Patrick Shea mystery, is now available in paperback on Amazon.

Lot's Going On with Mary Simonsen

November and December will be busy months for me personally and as a member of White Soup Press which launches on Monday on Austen Authors:


"... as for the ball, it is quite a settled thing; and as soon as Nicholls has made white soup enough I shall send round my cards."  - Pride & Prejudice

This month has been full of surprises and gifts from Austen Authors to our readers - giveaways, sales and Pride and Prejudice 200  posts for your enjoyment.  Today's surprise is different; it's a present for us, one that's been in the works for many months.  Today is the 201st anniversary of the Netherfield Ball, the perfect day to unveil White Soup Press, a new publishing imprint for the authors who are part of this blog. - Abigail Reynolds

Happy Thanksgiving!



I have so much to be grateful for, including my wonderful family. Because of social media, I have met so many terrific people from around the U.S. and the world. This has been such a blessing. Whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, know that you are appreciated. I would like to thank Jane Austen for bringing us all together.

Let the Revels Begin

This post was originally posted on Austen Authors by Abigail Reynolds.
November is a very special month at Austen Authors!
You are cordially invited to attend 
the 200th anniversary of the wedding of
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy to Miss Elizabeth Bennet
& Mr. Charles Bingley to Miss Jane Bennet  
Naturally, this means LOTS and LOTS of P&P200 vignettes – so many that during the entire month of November we’re cancelling our regular daily post to make room for daily P&P200 and wedding-related posts. THIS is the event we have been working toward since our inaugural P&P200 post on September 18, 2011.
As of today, there have been 117 P&P200 behind-the-scenes vignettes. All of them can be read, in order, either by clicking anyP&P200 icon (start on the last page), or on The Writer’s Block P&P200 Board. This month alone we have over 40 additional P&P200 blogs planned surrounding the November 16 nuptials. WOW! You won’t want to miss a single day!
Here is a mere sampling of what is in store for your reading pleasure–
Colonel Fitzwilliam learns of Darcy’s engagement
Lydia complains that she can’t come to the wedding
Mrs. Bennet’s advice for the wedding night
Mr. and Mrs. Collins marriage
The Longbourn ladies go shopping in London
Lady Catherine & Anne de Bourgh talk about the wedding
Caroline Bingley explains it all
Darcy & Elizabeth’s last walk before the wedding
The wedding!
The wedding nights of the Bingleys & the Darcys
Numerous reflections of the wedding
~~and so much more~~

New Cover for For All the Wrong Reasons

I am happy to unveil my new cover for my Pride and Prejudice re-imagining, For All the Wrong Reasons. A few months ago, I purchased a book cover program, and I'm finally learning how to use it! I hope you like it, and if you do, that you will let me know. Here is the blurb from the back jacket:

For All the Wrong Reasons - A Novella - Pemberley, the Darcy estate, is entailed away from the female line. When Fitzwilliam Darcy learns that Peter Grayson, the prospective heir, is to marry Caroline Bingley, he realizes that he must quickly find a wife so that he might have a son. But will Elizabeth Bennet agree to a loveless marriage, and if so, will she marry for all the wrong reasons? This novella explores Darcy and Elizabeth's path to a happily-ever-after ending.

Also don't forget that Mr. Darcy's Bite is on sale on Amazon and Nook for the month of November for $1.99. This title is owned by Sourcebooks, so when the sale is over, it's over for good.
