The day before Christmas I received a wonderful surprise delivered to my door: 5 advanced reader copies of The Passions of Dr. Darcy. Whoot! I was not expecting them until January, so having that box dropped on my stoop – along with all the ordered gifts I was expecting – was one of my best Christmas presents! Due to the holidays and my big December giveaway event, I decided with some difficulty to dampen my giddy delight and wait a bit to share the joy with all of you. Now I can no longer contain myself!
I am SO happy with this novel! Naturally the final cover will have the pretty “foiling” on the title section which will give it depth and a nice sheen. Still, it is fairly marvelous as is, and looks super cool on its stand next to my other novels. And no matter how many times I read the manuscript on my computer, it always feels special to read the story in a gorgeous bound book!
The official release date for The Passions of Dr. Darcy – according to Amazon – is April 2, 2013. Right around the corner! Yet still almost 3 months away. How would YOU like a chance to read my latest novel a bit early? I do have extra copies of my ARCs lying around, after all…
So, I will be giving away one copy every 2 weeks for the next 6 weeks. That is 3 copies of the advanced reader version of The Passions of Dr. Darcy to 3 lucky winners! Just use the Rafflecopter form below, choosing as many options as you wish – more options completed, more points toward winning! On January 29, and February 12, and then on February 26 I will select a name (using Rafflecopter and random.org), sending the ARC to the winner for her/his reading pleasure. What a deal!
I am VERY excited to share the epic tale of George Darcy. I wish I could speed the final publication along! Alas, we all must wait…. expect for reviewers and 3 lucky winners from my blog!
George Darcy is the second son of a wealthy landowner in Georgian Era England and, at 22, is considered to be a brilliant, rising star in England’s field of medicine. However, Dr. Darcy refuses the easy, comfortable pathway and enlists as a physician with the British East India Company, embarking on a personal quest where he strives to change the face of medicine while yearning to fill the void left within his soul at the death of his twin. His search for family, enduring love, and lost companionship is a quest not wholly realized until his return to England and Pemberley after thirty years of amazing adventures. It is then that a new generation of family and friends will heal the physician, and to his greatest surprise, where the true love of his life awaits.
Thanks for the support! And good luck in the giveaway!
