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!

  2. Katie Aus says:

    Half agony, half hope…. it’s such a great line!!! Although I also like a lot of lines by Mr. Tilney

    • Cass says:

      Mr Tilney seems to be increasing in popularity lately, Katie, and I don’t blame you for liking many of his lines. He is so funny! 😀

      As for ‘half agony, half hope’… swoon ❤

  3. Lúthien84 says:

    My favourite Jane Austen quote is uttered by Elizabeth Bennet: “Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.” It is a beautiful quote to remind me to think only the positive experience in my life and forget the bad ones. I also love Captain Wentworth’s love letter but the above is the best for me.

  4. Cristina says:

    There are so many favourites, but I think it has to be: “I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! ”
    ― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
    I also like very much the one that Luthien84 has mentioned.
    Thank you for your generosity, Cass.

    I covet that coin set, and loved reading A Quest for Mr. Darcy here. I look forward to the published version. Thanks, Cass! My quote comes from the first Austen book I ever read: “The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”

  6. “You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. I have loved none but you.” from Persuasion

    Also beginning of Pride and Prejudice about a rich man in need of a wife. Darcy’s proposals are good.

    Like Knightley’s declaration of love to Emma.

    • Cass says:

      Good choices, Patty! When you look at like this, Jane certainly gave her male leads a chance to shine when it came to proposals!

  7. TLeighF says:

    I love so many quotes from Jane Austen’s works, it’s hard to pick just one. But I suppose it would be a cop out to just say “all of Pride and Prejuduce”. 😄 So I will go with, “I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”. Mr. Darcy is not known for expressing himself well, but he really nails it with this!

    • Cass says:

      It is hard, isn’t it? LOL re picking all of P&P!

      I love your choice and agree, he really does hit the spot this time! ❤

    As I often did when you were posting this story Cass, I’m playing catch up again! Like many others, one of my favourite quotations has to be Captain Wentworth’s letter to Anne. I’ve recently been listening to Alison Larkin’s narration of Persuasion, which also included some of Jane Austen’s poetry, and fell in love with the novel all over again (not that I ever fell out of love with it, of course!)

    I ordered one of these presentation packs from the Royal Mint not long ago and it’s now sitting on the bookcase in my study. It looks lovely, and has lots of information inside. I loved that they included the Rice Portrait in it.

    Off now to catch up on your blog visits!

    • Cass says:

      That letter is so special, isn’t it? Le big sigh!! ❤

      I remember seeing your photos of the presentation pack and couldn't wait for mine to arrive!

  9. Katherine V says:

    I have 2 favourite quotes.. the first is “The is “I wish, as well as everyone else, to be perfectly happy; but, like everyone else, it must be in my own way.” The second is “it isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”
