Then Comes Winter by Christina Boyd Hey guys!

Just to let you know that Then Comes Winter is now on blog tour. Here's the link to Meryton Press blog for the schedule and links to the blogs hosting the tour: http://merytonpress.com/then-comes-wi...

Several of our group members are participating in the tour as blog hosts, authors, reviewers, sharers, and more. So nice to see the strong connections.

There is a giveaway of course and each stop hosts a different author/story. First up is one of our members here, Christina Boyd, the terrific editor visiting Maria's Fly High blog. Stop by and say, 'hey'.
I'm up next with a visit to Candy's So Little Time blog on 12/1. Left a little swoony excerpt. :)

Sourcebooks has several books on sale both for Kindle and Nook. One that I noticed so far is Austenesque.

Sharon Lathan's Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy is on sale for $1.99 at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003...


message 12: by Ceri (new)

Ceri | 233 comments I just noticed a couple of price drops that I thought I'd share with you. They are UK drops, but it's always worth checking if they've dropped elsewhere. First up is a book featuring Jane Austen as a sleuth. 'Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas' by Stephanie Barron. It's part of a series, but I believe they are largely stand-alone. I have read only this one of the series and I enjoyed it. In the last month it's dropped in price in tiny increments from over £7 to its current price of. £1.95. I don't know whether it will drop further or not. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0...


message 13: by Ceri (new)

Ceri | 233 comments Second drop is a book by Jann Rowland called 'Bound by Love'. Quite a few of his books have dropped to about £2.25 but this one is 99p. I haven't read anything by him so can't tell you what the books are like: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bound-Love-Ja...

message 33: by Ceri (new)

Ceri | 233 comments Some of Jennifer Becton's P&P based books are free (UK, but I think elsewhere too) - Charlotte Collins: A Continuation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is a P&P sequel focusing on Charlotte and Maria Lucas: A Short Story in the Personages of Pride & Prejudice Collection which is a short sequel to that.

Sophia (sophiarose) | 757 comments Mod

These are free at Amazon US as well. Her others are only $.99. I want that Caroline Bingley one. :)

Buahaha! Yes, it really is. I am determined each year that 'this will be the year' and I fall flat by March. :)

I really shouldn't. Denial is not just a river in Egypt. Gah! But I have to say that I do better than I used to. :)

Erika (eureeka75) | 92 comments I try, but it's my addiction!!

Ceri | 233 comments That is so funny, Erika! I was thinking about resolving not to buy any books at all next year and then I just laughed, I'm fooling nobody with such an unkeepable promise!
