A fellow author of Jane Austen fan fiction, Victoria Kincaid, has been nominated for a prestigious RONE award for 2015. I could not be more proud. Her debut book, The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth: A Pride and Prejudice Variationis outstanding and very deserving of an award.
Recently, my daughter, Jennifer Joy, published her very first book. Darcy’s Ultimatumhas had tremendous success, spending almost the whole of its first month with a #1 banner from Amazon under it’s gorgeous cover. Recently, Abigail Reynolds and Sarah Johnson’s new releases also hit that coveted #1 spot.
So, what about A Father’s Sins? How did it do it’s first year? In January 2015, A Father’s Sins was chosen as a Highlight from 2014 at Sophie Andrews’ blog, Laughing With Lizzy. Here is what she said:” really enjoyed this story. It was unique and different. This is a much more serious variation than I usually read, but it was an interesting and enjoyable change … The story was very dramatic and fast paced but had romance and humour – a perfect mix! Joy really is a talented author and I can’t wait for more!” Thank you! Thank you very much!
