Excerpts x2 AND Christmas Happenings!

Busy day for me today! I have two excerpts that I am sharing today, for your reading pleasure – and a giveaway!


The first is at Austen Authors, where we have been celebrating the launch of our newest endeavor: White Soup Press. This is our publishing “imprint” for those of us who are launching into the world of independent publishing. The Passions of Dr. Darcy is my last novel to be published by Sourcebooks, so any future writing I complete will be published myself using the White Soup Press logo. I am very excited by this prospect, and very excited to share my current work-in-progress with my readers. Pop over to Austen Authors to get a sneak peak at what is in store…. and if you like what you read, and haven’t read the P&P200 vignettes that inspired my on this course… those can be linked to here: My P&P200 Posts at Austen Authors


White Soup Press Imprint: Sharon Lathan’s Darcy Saga “Prequel”

Wish me luck on this project, and pray that real-life issues allow me the freedom to finish this novel.



Next up, I am getting into the Holiday Spirit by sharing an “Under the Mistletoe” excerpt from my first novel – Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One – at Leatherbound Reviews. Jakki has a month-long event planned with numerous authors sharing Christmassy excerpts and prizes. I will be there again later in the month with a snippet from A Darcy Christmas and another giveaway, so be on the lookout for that! To read today’s humorous excerpt and to enter in the giveaway for a copy of my debut novel (deadline December 4) here is the direct link:


Under the Mistletoe with Sharon Lathan and the Darcys


In other BIG news as we head into the holiday month, I will be making several stops across the blog-o-sphere!


First up is THIS SUNDAY – DECEMBER 2!  I am happily sharing the spotlight with my friends and fellow authors Amanda Grange, Regina Jeffers, and Barbara Cole Tiller in a LIVE CHAT with Meredith Esparza at Austenesque Reviews. Oh man! Is this ever going to be fun! For upwards to 2 hours the four of us will be online live, waiting to chat with you and answer your questions. Isn’t that fabulous?

The chat will start at 3pm EST  (12noon PST) on the chat board HERE

All of us will be giving away copies of our books.
