I have to admit, it gave me a little personal thrill to walk into Target and see that book sitting there. I find it strange to see that book sitting on the shelf and know that I personally know the very nice and talented lady who wrote it.

No one deserves this success more than Sharon. I remember the days when this story was in it’s infancy and posted as fanfic. You’ve come a long way Baby – and I couldn’t be happier for you!


Congrats, Sharon!!! You know that I’m very proud and happy for you. I wish you all the best of luck and many more successes ahead of you. God Bless you (and your family) always! 🙂

Hi Sharon!

Wonderful and well earned praises from all your friends and your husband! How very Blessed you all are.

I must add my congratulations, too. I am so happy for you and your family and, us, all your admiring fans.

I did make it out to one of the Target stores near my home in Bethel Park, PA today. Voila! Your book was there right next to Pride & Prejudice. I now own my very own copy of your first published and edited book. Can’t wait for the other two to come out!

Sharon, your book looked so nice there on the shelf. It was very easy to spot. I don’t know how many books that particular store got but after I picked up mine; there was just one book left. A good sign, is it not?

Congratulations again, dear friend. May God continue to Bless you and your family. Take care.

Woo hoo!!!! How AWESOME is that! Way to go, Sharon! I


Thank you everyone! It is a magical moment to be sure. I have decided to fully enjoy the ride, let the emotions wave over me, be the giddy child with her new toy, etc. It is so amazing!

Vee, Seli, Elly, and May: You have been friends and supporters for ages now, but your words here are as treasured by me as the first ones ever written. A million hugs to you from me.

Naomi, Welcome! I do hope you enjoy reading my version of the Darcys. Let me know!


The first line of your book was what captured me! The journey has been wonderful, exciting ever since. Sharon my best wishes. It is wonderful so many people now will be able to enjoy and be captured by your first book and many more to come.

I bow to you and toast to your continue success.


This is the most amazing picture ever!

I shall never forget telling you when I read your very first chapter that I would happily place your story next to JA’s novels on my shelf and there you go!!!! You have done it dear friend!!!!!

Heartiest congratulations from Down Under. Its wonderful that your dear family is as proud as punch and so am I.

Great News!!!

I am so excited that a sequal is coming out. I have always dreamed about what happened to Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I love watching Andrew Davies’ 6 hour verson with Collin Firth…so good.


How thrilling for you Sharon and your obviously proud family to see the fruits of your labours. I can’t wait for the day I can walk into a UK store with my friends and say "look that’s my friend’s book!"


This must feel like heaven Sharon, to see your own creation in a store! I am so proud of you! The book is looking beautiful. Of course I must have this one as well as the others. But I am not going to buy this on the internet because in the end of april and the first two weeks of may I am in the USA. Then I am going to buy a Sharon Lathan book in a store. :-))
Lots of succes.


As Sharon’s husband I must say its a bit surreal to walk into a store and see the creation you’ve been living with all this time sitting on a shelf. I personally am humbled and also encouraged as is my wife over the events that unfolded with this book. I say to all her fans thank you…it’s humbling indeed, my best wishes for an enjoyable time with the book. To Deb and all at Sourcebooks also I would like to say you’ve made a very good looking product and your professional insights were awesome. To all Sharon’s fans I say from us both…we are humbled…you’re the best.
