Hope of the Future UPDATE! Print is now AVAILABLE!

Whew! Has it been a busy two weeks or what? I have been running around like the proverbial headless chicken, but the good news is that all my hard work has paid off. DARCY & ELIZABETH: HOPE OF THE FUTURE is officially released. Whoopie!!

At the moment I type this post, ALL of the digital versions are available for purchase. Easy links right below–




The digital cost is $5.99 for my latest novel, which ended up being roughly 113,000 words in 13+ chapters and 350 pages in print form. A good-sized book!

Speaking of the print paperback version, today I received the final proof and hit the approval button on CreateSpace. According to the notice, it will take between 3 to 5 business days to show up on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, although I do not think it will take that long. I may be wrong though. In any case, I shall be keeping a close eye on it.

Look for updates here and on my Facebook Page. The print cost is $13.99.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Well, I did say I thought the print would appear sooner than the stated “3 to 5 days” but honestly didn’t think it would show up within a matter of hours! I woke up this morning with the alert in my inbox. Wow! Amazon can be quite amazing at times. So, below are the links to purchasing on Amazon, as well as directly from CreateSpace. As an FYI, ordering from CreateSpace is not cheaper, however, it may arrive sooner since it is coming straight from the printing source AND I receive a larger royalty percentage due to not having Amazon take their cut. I do not see the print available on Barnes & Noble as yet. Expanded distribution with definitely take another day or two.



Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet will soon be joined in Holy Matrimony!

The initial month of their Season of Courtship has passed. Together, the lovers strengthened their bond through honest communication, as they dealt with adversity, jealousy, and distrust. Ever growing in mutual love and understanding, a dramatic confrontation broke through the final barriers.

Now their Hope of the Future “happily ever after” is assured!

As long as Lady Catherine can be stopped in her scheme to interfere, that is. Or, will Mrs. Bennet’s bad advice ruin future marital felicity?
Might increasing liberation lead to overwhelming passions that cannot be controlled, with catastrophe a result?

Continue the journey begun in Darcy and Elizabeth: A Season of Courtship. Delight in their flourishing romance, ride along on their escapades in London, and be a witness at the wedding of the century.

The miraculous design of how Two Shall Become One begins before the sacred vows.



Due to the busyness of this week, I have decided to celebrate the release of Hope of the Future next week. I am planning all sorts of fun events each day of the week! A GIVEAWAY TOO! Be sure to come back, starting on Monday, for the fun!
