A Storm is Brewing…

Progress report for Windswept: A Pride & Prejudice Variation

I am happy to report that my 72,000 (+/-) word story is with my editor for the third and final time. She is hoping to return the manuscript to me by Wednesday or Thursday. My plan is to address her edits immediately so I can send files to my ARC readers for their review. The changes she has already suggested have sharpened the story, which is my favorite that I’ve ever written. I LOVE these characters. I love the way Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth treat each other even before the storm of the century hits Hertfordshire. I do hope you love it too.

Here is the blurb:

Will the storm of the century tear Darcy and Elizabeth apart or bring them together forever?

Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet join forces when hurricane winds trap them together during the Netherfield Ball. Darcy must confront his prejudices and the dangers that threaten their lives while keeping a secret that, if known, would ruin his family’s reputation.

During the worst of the storm, the only person Elizabeth can rely on is the one man she despises—until his repeated acts of selflessness make her distrust her first impression.

In this battle of the elements, will Darcy and Elizabeth learn that the other is worthy of their confidence, respect, and deep affection? Can love prosper during the height of destruction?

Hold onto your bonnets in this tempestuous twist of Pride & Prejudice where Jane Austen’s beloved characters discover the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity, along with the transformative power of love.

What do you think? It sounds exciting, doesn’t it? I think so. My publishing dream would be to release this book in eBook format before next weekend. However, if the rewrites take longer than I expect, I will do a pre-order for May 24th. We shall see how much red ink comes back to me.

Happy Spring if you are in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn if you are in the Southern!
