A New Year Thank You to My Readers

In many ways 2014 was a difficult year.  My family moved.  My son has a mysterious digestive problem that has caused him to miss a lot of school.  My daughter started high school and encountered new difficulties caused by being a bright kid with a learning disability.

But 2014 was a great year too.  When I published The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth, I had no idea what to expect. I considered it entirely possible I would sell 100 copies and no one would ever hear about it.  I wasn’t at all prepared for thousands of people buying the book and hundreds of good reviews. There are times I still can’t believe it :).

So 2014 was a great year because of my readers.  I am very grateful to everyone who bought, read, and reviewed my book. Thank you!

And I’m humbled and thrilled that I may have brought fellow readers the kind of pleasure other authors have given me.

I am hoping 2015 will be just as good (or even better!).  I am working hard to publish my next Austen variation, Pride and Proposals, as quickly as possible. And I’m germinating the ideas for the next story.  Stay tuned!

  1. Hi Victoria, and a Happy New Year to you too!

    It’s good to hear that there’s a new book in the offing as I so enjoyed The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth.

    One of the highlights of 2014 for me came on the very last day of the year in my very first visit to Chawton. The main highlight, though, had to be our son’s graduation from University. He’s had his own problems over the years but has now hopefully come through them all. So, in some ways, I can understand what you’re going through with your son and daughter.

    Here’s hoping 2015 will be a better year for you.

  2. Hi Anji,

    Thank you for your nice comments about my book! It’s great to know that my writing gives others pleasure. My family was in Chawton this summer and it was one of the highlights of my year :). I appreciate your sharing your son’s story. It’s good to have a reminder that other people’s children have struggles and succeeded. As a parent it’s so hard to watch your child go through that.
    Best of wishes to you for 2015!
