Hello everyone! Are you as excited as I am? In two weeks, just 14 days from today, Loving Mr. Darcy: Journeys Beyond Pemberley will officially be released. Another red-letter day in my life as a published author. I am thrilled to be able to share my love for these incredible characters with all of you. My sincerest hope is that each person who reads my Saga will fall further in love with the ideals of romance and happily ever after.My virtual book tour began yesterday and for over a month I will be traveling around the globe from blog to blog talking about the Darcys and my latest novel. I hope you will jet along with me, taking part in the fun and chances to win a copy of the book. Here on The Darcy Saga I will be holding the Loving Mr. Darcy Launch Fete for three whole days: August 30, 31, and September 1.
Everyone is formally invited!!
It will be three days of fun and – I hope – group participation. The more the merrier as the saying goes. Plus, I will be giving away 2 signed copies of Loving Mr. Darcy. How cool is that? All you need to do is get involved. How, you ask? Glad you did! I promise it will be painless. All you have to do to prepare is read Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One. Can you handle that? *wink
Here is the agenda:
Sunday, Aug. 30
General discussion about my debut novel in the Darcy Saga series begins and will continue for all three days. Or beyond, if you wish, but the three days is for the giveaway. I will introduce a few topic points, but the chat is open for anything you want to ask as long as it focuses on the book itself. Curious about something? Wonder why I wrote a certain part? Interested in a historical fact? I will be there to answer questions and will encourage interaction.
Monday, Aug. 31
A scavenger hunt of events, items, or places. Just find it and tell me what chapter it is in! That’s all!
A fill-in-the-blanks quiz to test your memory.
A “Who said?” quiz. All in good fun! A test of how well you know the characters! Don’t fret, I am a kind tutor and will make it multiple choice.
Tuesday, Sept. 1
This is the day! Time to Party!! I will start the festivities with fireworks, parlor games, food, and beverages. Bring whatever goodies or amusements you want to add to the celebration. While we are munching and sipping our wassail we can talk about Loving Mr. Darcy. I won’t give any secrets away! But what are your anticipations or predictions? Who do you want to read about besides Lizzy and Darcy? Where do you want them to journey?
The reality is that my second novel may well end up in your hot hands before the 1st of September. If that happens, be sure to let me know! But we will keep the Loving Mr. Darcy Launch Fete spoiler free. Save your thoughts for Sept. 29 & 30 when I will be hosting a Loving Mr. Darcy general discussion after folks have had a chance to read the book.
Mark your calendars! I am really excited to share this momentous occasion with my readers and friends. No RSVP necessary. Just come on over. Regency attire optional.
