I am delighted to announce the release today of The Darcy Brothers, a story co-written by five Austenesque authors (including me!)
Come and enter the fab giveaways at Austenprose and follow Theo Darcy as he goes ‘on tour’ (but shhh, don’t tell his brother!!!)
We are very pleased to welcome Monica Fairview, Maria Grace, Cassandra Grafton, Susan Mason-Milks and Abigail Reynolds to Austenprose for the official virtual book launch party of their new novel The Darcy Brothers, released today by White Soup Press.
Inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, The Darcy Brothers is an original variation based on Austen’s classic in which Mr. Darcy has a charming younger brother named Theo who meets Elizabeth Bennet and vies for her affections. Written by five Austenesque authors, you may well ask, as we did ourselves, how they could pool their talents and create one novel together? Abigail Reynolds has kindly supplied a revealing guest blog to share the experience with you. And, any celebration would not be complete without gifts. Please enter a chance to win one of the four fabulous prizes being offered by their publisher by leaving a comment. The giveaway details…

I am so happy to see you posting on your blog again, Cassandra. I loved the work you guys did on AV and can’t wait to read the compiled, edited version.
I really hope you enjoy it, Debbie! There are several scenes that have changed content and we’ve added in all the additional scenes we wrote at the readers’ request in the latter half of the story, so it’s a good, solid read!
Thank you and congratulations to all of you for publishing this story. I went over and posted a comment on Austenprose. How is your own book coming along?
It’s getting there, Carole! I had to put things on hold for the last few months as I was a bit engrossed with Theo!!! 😉 (It wasn’t a hardship, honestly!) 😉 I hope to have some news on the new book before too long, but I hate to tempt fate because every time I think I can see the end coming, something disrupts me!
Thank you for asking!
Love the idea of the co-authors. I know it will make for an interesting read.
