Another New Cover!

Just to freshen things up a bit, my cover designer, Jane Dixon-Smith of JD Smith Designs, has updated the cover to the anthology I published last year called “One Love – Two Hearts – Three Stories”. It should be online by the end of the week – I hope.

The two of us arranged two photo shoots in the spring of 2016. The first one was for the cover of “The Abominable Mr. Darcy (TAMD)”. If you look closely, you will notice the clothing on my work-in-progress cover is the same as worn by the male model for TAMD. A bit of fancy Photoshopping, I think. The second shoot had several Regency period-correct costumes and several female models. The ladies from my new anthology cover and the cover to “Friends and Enemies” are both from that shoot.

Here is the new cover in comparison with the old. Definitely more fitting to the overall themes of the three stories, don’t you think? (Old – left, New – right)

Cover Reveal: Friends and Enemies

Despite the chaos of my life right now, my cover designer has been working her fingers to the bone. Not only did she finish the cover for the story I’m currently posting on fanfiction.net and beyondausten.com (Friends and Enemies), she’s redesigning the cover for my anthology, “One Love – Two Hearts – Three Stories”. I hope to have a sneak peek of its new cover out to you soon.

“Friends and Enemies” tells a story of change. The tale¬†starts with Miss Lydia Bennet boldly telling Fitzwilliam Darcy how much her sister despises him. When this is followed up by criticism from both Charles Bingley and Colonel Fitzwilliam, he vows to change. However, circumstances place him in close contact with Elizabeth Bennet where her wary heart does not automatically return his regard nor see his attempts in self-improvement. Of course, they will have their happily-ever-after, but not until they are both stripped bare of pretense and pride. They both use their disappointment with themselves (and each other) to build marvelous characters. Oh, sigh! This is, by far, my most angst-ridden novel.

Without further ado, here is the front cover of “Friends and Enemies” –

Final February Giveaway! (I think)

fb-ad

 

I have to tell you that I’m particularly fond of two of these items. The porcelain doll is precious. I do not read the original language of the accompanying book, but the pictures inside are lovely. The calendars? Oh, my!!! Swoon! Janet Taylor has outdone herself for 2017.

The February newsletter should reach your email on February 1st. I’ve included the password to access the free stories and there’s a new one about my version of how Darcy and Bingley met. I had to polish up my Latin (what Latin? I didn’t study any languages in school). Well, I had to polish up on Google Translate.

You can’t win if you aren’t signed up for my newsletter. As always, all my drawings are available internationally.

Happy reading!

Free! The Abominable Mr. Darcy

I hate to disappoint. It’s the eBook that is free, not Mr. Darcy himself. Though would you want him when he’s still abominable? Would you be able to motivate him to change like Miss Elizabeth Bennet did? I hope so. Poor man! He desperately needed some feminine guidance.

Due to being accepted for a BookBub deal (a huge thing in book advertising), this eBook will be free in ALL Amazon markets until the 24th so be sure and get your copy today. Some who have taken advantage of this sale were also able to obtain the audiobook via Audible.com for only $1.99. How is that for a bargain?
