There they are!
THE PASSIONS OF DR. DARCY
My author copies arrived early last week, and talk about excited! There was some happy-dancing going on in the Lathan household, let me tell ya. Shiny, thick, perfectly printed – it is a masterpiece. I may be a wee bit prejudiced, I’ll admit, but so far the consensus from everyone who has seen the finish product is the same as mine. See how fabulous it looks on my office shelf?
For the most part, my work is done. Now I can breathe a deep sigh of relief as I sit back and simply enjoy the satisfaction of a job excellently concluded. I have no control over who will purchase the novel, who will enjoy it or hate it, or who will write a positive review. Individual choice is not up to me. I can only flip through the pages, relive the journey I took with George Darcy, and know without a shred of doubt that I wrote a remarkable story about a remarkable man.
This time around I decided not to kill myself with a plethora of blog stops. I’ll be sharing news flashes on my Facebook page – Sharon Lathan, Novelist – and here on my blog. This is where the best information is anyway! If you haven’t already, scroll down the blog page to read the recent posts about George Darcy, or click the following links–
I have additional information at theses links–
I may not be dashing hither and yon across the glittering blog-o-sphere, but I am gonna do some partying!
First up is my BIG celebration on Austen Authors. Yippee! Gotta share the joy with my special pals in the Austenesque fiction community. Come on over and join in the fun happening today, and be sure to enter the giveaway contest. I will be handing out 1 signed, print copy of The Passions of Dr. Darcy, and 2 eBook versions. Deadline April 8.
Also today, I am honored to be the guest on the blog of fellow Austen Author Colette Saucier – Pulse and Prejudice and All My Tomorrows. She is a peach to have me, and I had lots of fun writing my Top Ten Reasons why The Passions of Dr. Darcy is my favorite. Hopefully you will enjoy learning why too!

In other interesting giveaway news, Fresh Fiction is hosting a contest for a copy of my awesome novel. This one is sponsored by my publisher, so the book won’t be signed by me, but a free novel is always worth a shot, right? Click the image or link, and fill in the simple online form. Deadline April 30.
In the days and weeks ahead I will be frequently posting updates, fabulous reviews (I hope), and a number of cool surprises I have up my sleeve. *Hint: Rumor has it that the intrepid reporter for the Derby Chronicle, Miss Austen, has interviewed Dr. Darcy! More than anything, I want to hear from YOU! Tell me what you thought of the novel! Share images of my lovely book sitting on a book store shelf! Alert me to internet chatter! Ask me a question! Anything!!
