Hello, everyone! I’m sorry that I’ve basically fallen off the face of the earth for a few months. We’ve made a major move, from the U.S. to Germany, and that has consumed my attention for some months now. We initially expected to move in July, so I spent the spring/early summer decluttering and sorting, only for our move to be delayed by COVID to September. More months of continued work! We stayed in a temporary lodging hotel for a month after our arrival until we could find a rental.
The good news is that we are now living in our new house, *and* we even now have Internet (we had a painful two-week wait for it). There are still boxes and boxes to unpack and lots of work left to do, but the end is in sight.
The good news for you, my readers, is that I have a new book ready to release, and now that I have Internet I can get it formatted and uploaded. I am hoping to release Plots, Ploys, and the Art of Matchmaking on November 20 if I can. I don’t have a preorder link up yet, so this book will probably have a very short preorder period if any at all. I want to get it to you as soon as possible, but without Internet and with all of the moving/unpacking, I haven’t wanted to commit to a release date until I was sure I could make it.
Since I don’t have a preorder link for you, I did want to at least let you get the first look at the book’s blurb! Here is Plots, Ploys, and the Art of Matchmaking:
When Darcy’s eccentric uncle Lord Matlock arrives in Meryton for a visit with his old friend Mr. Bennet, nobody can escape their mischief. From locked doors to misdirected carriages, Matlock and Bennet wreak havoc on inhabitants of Longbourn and Netherfield alike.
Darcy and Elizabeth fall prey to their relations’ schemes more than once, but they firmly resist any matchmaking efforts. Darcy knows his value in the marriage market and has no intention of marrying beneath him. Elizabeth could never marry such a pompous bore. But their pride and prejudice become a lot harder to maintain when they find themselves trapped alone together.
Will Matlock and Bennet succeed in making matches for all of Meryton—except the two stubborn fools they know belong together?
This sweet comedic variation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is 73,000 words of mischief and matchmaking.
Plots, Ploys, and the Art of Matchmaking will be available on Amazon this month! Hopefully you will enjoy this bit of comedy and fun in the midst of the craziness that is 2020. (And 2021 had better be a happier year, because my next book is going to be angsty!)
