I’m a guest today at Babblings of a Bookworm where I discuss Gravelines, an official City of Smugglers Napoleon set up on the French coast to encourage English smugglers near the end of the Napoleonic Wars. The place plays a crucial role in my new book, The Unforgettable Mr. Darcy. You can also sign up for an international giveaway and read an excerpt from the novel!
Margie’s Must Reads writes, “I adored it! There was so much to love! I loved the original quotes for Pride and Prejudice sprinkled in, I loved the characters and how their modern counterparts were very similar to their classic siblings but still had a way of being original…..”
“I really did not want it to end! It was not long enough!! I didn’t have enough time with Mr. President!! There were so many laughs and I even cried in a few places!! This book was just want I needed, a perfect remedy for my political woes right now. Why can’t we live in a world with President Fitzwilliam Darcy?!?!”
Check out the review and excerpt and giveaway! Also, you can find out which world leader Margie was fantasizing about when she was reading the book. Although, here’s a hint….
Nissa at Of Pens and Pages wrote a lovely review of Darcy’s Honor: “You can always expect a fresh and riveting story from Ms. Kincaid’s variations. Darcy’s Honor was gripping, heartbreaking and warming, and engaging.” Her blog also features an excerpt and a giveaway!
Check out my guest blog at Diary of an Eccentric — where I talk about humor in Jane Austen and the role it plays in my P&P variations. There’s also an excerpt from Chaos Comes to Longbourn and a giveaway of ebook or paperback (winner’s choice).
Check out my guest blog about Chaos Comes to Longbourn at the From Pemberley to Milton blog. I describe the challenges I faced in the novel when writing from eight (!) different points of view. There’s also an excerpt: a conversation between Darcy and Lydia that is doomed from the start. 🙂

Claudine at the JustJane1813 blog has given Chaos Comes to Longbourn a five star review! She writes, “As she adheres to the proprieties and the sensibilities of the Regency era, Ms. Kincaid has spun a tale that is quite comedic, while she simultaneously manages to balance her story with the serious consequences contained within each couples’ own particular situation. I love that her plot never sags or wanes and that she also manages to develop Darcy and Elizabeth’s own budding relationship in the midst of all of this chaos. The inner musings of each of her characters are so well-written and reflect each character’s growing awareness of his/her own true feelings throughout each situation.”
The post also includes a giveaway (ebook or paperback – winner’s choice), excerpt, and guest blog in which I describe how a Facebook post by Joana Starnes inspired me to write Chaos Comes to Longbourn.
