I’m a guest today at Diary of an Eccentric where I talk about how I wove together elements of the plot for Romeo and Juliet with Pride and Prejudice–and an excerpt from the Meryton assembly scene. There’s also a Giveaway of an ebook or paperback (winner’s choice)!
Ceri is hosting me today at Babblings of a Bookworm for a guest post and excerpt from Darcy vs. Bennet– and a giveaway! Check it out.
Darcy vs. Bennet received 4.5 (out of 5) stars from the Jane Austen blog JustJane1813! The post also features a giveaway of the book.
From the review: “Once again, this was another book by Ms. Kincaid that I just couldn’t put down once I started reading it! Her plot was clever, her characters were great fun to spend time with and her dialogue is just as sharp and as engaging as ever….”
“For my JAFF reading pleasures, I love when there are lots of tender moments between Darcy and Elizabeth that are wrapped within a story that maintains a steady pace and a consistent amount of even-handed angst. Ms. Kincaid’s newest story provides all of this while giving us quite a few new twists and curves. I highly recommend this story for all JAFF readers who are looking for a book that will bring them all of the above while effortlessly sprinkled with some funny and light-hearted moments!”
From Pemberley to Milton is doing a double giveaway of my new novel, Darcy vs. Bennet, and my recent novella, When Mary Met the Colonel. There’s also an interview – check it out. Rita asked some very interesting questions.
Ceri at the Babblings of a Bookworm blog gave a lovely review to When Mary Met the Colonel. She writes, “… it’s a wonderfully romantic read. There is a lot of romance in the idea of two people who care for each other but who are divided, especially when neither has an indication that their affection is returned… sigh! I’d recommend this book …”
Giveaway and guest post at Diary of an Eccentric. I write about the importance of laughter in Austen’s novels. Here’s the beginning of the blog — visit Diary of an Eccentric to read the rest or sign up for the giveaway!
“So, I wrote a Pride and Prejudice variation in which Elizabeth actually becomes engaged to Mr. Collins. Why was I motivated to write such a plot? Well, there are multiple reasons, but one is because my son (then 11 years old) thought Mr. Collins was funny….” https://diaryofaneccentric.wordpress.com/2015/08/13/guest-post-giveaway-mr-darcy-to-the-rescue-by-victoria-kincaid/
Visit My Jane Austen Book Club for my guest post about Mr. Collins and why he’s so hard for JAFF writers to redeem. There’s also an excerpt from Mr. Darcy to the Rescue and a giveaway of an ebook or paperback copy!
Ceri at the Babblings of a Bookworm blog is hosting a giveaway of Pride and Proposals — ebook or print (your choice). She is also featuring a guest post from me about how I got started writing Jane Austen Fan Fiction and an excerpt from the book.
Tina at the Half Agony Half Hope blog gave Pride and Proposals a lovely five star review — saying she couldn’t put it down. There’s no greater compliment for an author 🙂 Thank you Tina!
She’s also hosting a giveaway of a copy of the book, so check it out today.
Warning: There is a bit of a spoiler in the review if you haven’t read the book.
Congratulations to Ruth T., Monica P. and Tgruy for winning copies of The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth! There was great geographic diversity: a winner each from the US, Mexico, and Canada. Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway and showed their support by voting for my book in the RONE awards. Voting is over for that category, but my understanding is that winners won’t be announced until June.
