Giveaway Winners Announced on Book Release Day!

I’m delighted to announce the two winners of the giveaway which ran from Monday to Wednesday here on my Blog – for a special edition Brilliant Uncirculated £2 Coin in a presentation pack!

The responses were amazing, with some wonderful quotes shared from both Jane Austen’s letters and her works.

All those who left a quote on the Blog had their names entered into a hat for the draw, and the lovely Joan Mossop of St Mary’s Hall B&B in Alton did the honours this morning in selecting two numbers.

Congratulations therefore go to:

  • JoEllen
  • deborahanne2

Please email me on cassandra {dot} grafton {at} gmail {dot} com and let me have a mailing address for you!

(Should any prize remain unclaimed by midnight UK time this coming Saturday (24th June), a further drawing will take place.)

I’m also pleased to say it’s finally release day for A Quest for Mr Darcy. The eBook is now available in all the usual online stores – links below! (The paperback is coming. Just waiting on the interior from the formatters).

Many thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway. There is currently one running over at Diary of an Eccentric, where there is an excerpt from the novel and a chance to win a free book and some Jane Austen goodies. You can find it here.

I am also being interviewed on Austenesque Reviews tomorrow, where there will be a further chance to enter to win a giveaway of a copy of the book and more goodies!

A Quest for Mr Darcy – an Update and a Giveaway

I’m happy to say A Quest for Mr Darcy will be released in eBook format on Thursday, 22nd June, with the paperback coming soon after. ❤  It is still available for pre-order, and the links are below.

I’ll be visiting two blogs this week, Diary of an Eccentric on Wednesday and Austenesque Reviews on Friday, and there will be opportunities to win copies of the book and some Jane Austen themed goodies!

However, in the meantime, I thought I’d offer a little gift here on my Blog! You have doubtless heard about Jane Austen being featured on the new £10 note coming into general circulation later this year. In addition, the Royal Mint is releasing a new £2 coin which will also feature Jane Austen.

Although this will soon be in general circulation, I have two special edition Brilliant Uncirculated Coins in a presentation pack to GIVE AWAY!

All you need to do to enter to win one of the two coins on offer is tell me your favourite Jane Austen quote (from any novel or her letters)! The closing date for entries will be midnight UK time on Wednesday, 21st June.

In the meantime, pre-order links for A Quest for Mr Darcy are below. It is available for pre-order in the Apple Book Store too, but I don’t have a link!

A Quest for Mr Darcy – the Epilogue and More!

I am delighted to say A Quest for Mr Darcy is now available for pre-order on Amazon at the link here, with a release date of 22nd June. It will be available for pre-order in other formats shortly. 😀

In the meantime, the Epilogue is now posted! You can find it by clicking here. It will remain up on the Blog for seven days (until 13th June), after which it will be removed.

Please do not follow the link to read the Epilogue if you haven’t read the whole story as, surprise surprise, it contains spoilers – lots of them! 😉

As you may have seen, it was cover reveal day on Monday! Rita at All Things Jane Austen very kindly invited me to tea and conversation as we revealed not only the cover for A Quest for Mr Darcy, but also the story behind it!

You can read the post here, and if you leave a comment on Rita’s Blog, you can enter the giveaway for a free book and some Jane Austen goodies! This giveaway closes on Friday, 9th June.

I will be visiting some of my favourite blogs throughout June, and I hope to see you there! Each visit will offer a further chance to enter a giveaway for more Jane Austen goodies and a free book!

So, where has my calling card been delivered?

6th June – All Things Jane Austen

15th June – Austen Variations

22nd June – Launch day here on my Blog!

23rd June – Austenesque Reviews

Latest Posting News for A Quest for Mr Darcy

The first draft of A Quest for Mr Darcy is now complete.

Thank you SO much to all those who read along as I was writing, especially the wonderful commenters who made me laugh, smile, kept me going through the bad days (and weeks!) and generally made the last six months so much fun! ❤

As promised, the story remained live for seven days. All but the opening chapters have now been removed for editing, proofing and preparation for publication in late June.

Foxy Darcy 😉

The Epilogue will be posted here once written, and there will be several giveaway copies of the book available when it is released, some from my visits to other blogs and some on this one. My giveaways always include eBook and paperback editions (winner’s choice) and will be open worldwide. 😀

Chapter News

In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My attempt to finish the next chapter has been repressed! You must allow me to tell you how sorry I am not to be posting one this week!

I’m afraid being away has hampered my progress and brought several technical issues into play as well (keyboards not syncing, the Word app on my iPad throwing a hissy fit, etc etc).

The chapter will go up on Sunday now, once we are home again, and I am sorry for the extra few days’ delay. There will be two chapters next week, but posting days will be Wednesday and Friday.

The story may conclude next week, but as I am the worst judge of how long it takes me to say anything, don’t be surprised if a couple more sneak into the mix!!
