J. W. Garrett (jeannewallacegarrett) | 447 comments Leenie Brown's 'The Saturday Broadsheet'

https://www.leeniebrown.com/the-satur...

is full of information today. She discussed her own writing news and also that of her friend and fellow author Zoe Burton. Burton is putting two books on a limited KU so members of that program may be interested. They are:

Darcy's Secret Marriage: A Pride & Prejudice Novel Variation

Darcy Overhears: A Pride & Prejudice Novel Variation

Chelsea (crystal_dark) | 402 comments I saw these marked as free on https://www.facebook.com/MyLoveforJan...

Seeking Mr. Dependable (The Jane Austen Pact, #3) by Cami Checketts Seeking Mr. Dependable

I also saw a promo to get $3 towards a selection of Kindle books so I am including the link for it as well: https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/pro...
I don't know if it will have any books that will interest anyone here but thought it would share it just in case.

I LOVED this series (although I hate to admit I haven't read the prequel yet) and look forward to reading the one she is working on now as well.

It’s about English society in the time of Pride and Prejudice.


message 8: by J. W. (new)

J. W. Garrett (jeannewallacegarrett) | 447 comments Leenie Brown's book is about to leave the KU program. Last chance to download it before it is gone. For an excerpt and information... check out her Monday post. Heavy sigh... it was so cute.

HA! "In fact, over 300 novels have been written in the last 20 or 25 years that either adapt the story or extend the story of Pride and Prejudice in some way."

A little bit of an underestimate, I would say!

Anji | 298 comments Audible UK are having a sale. Each day there'll be a different selection on offer for a bargain price of £3. One of today's selection is Rosamund Pike's wonderful performance of Pride and Prejudice. Lots of other classics on offer today, too.

Don't know if this sale is happening elsewhere, but if you love audiobooks, then it's worth checking for on the appropriate site where you live.


message 28: by Debbie (new)

Debbie (dmbrown) | 428 comments An Unsuitable Governess: A Pride and Prejudice Variation by Violet King is currently on sale for 99 cents in the U.S. I don't recall the usual price, but I know I had it marked on my TBR list as "expensive," so this is probably a good deal.


message 29: by Debbie (last edited Feb 10, 2020 07:21PM) (new)

Debbie (dmbrown) | 428 comments My review for Mimi Matthews' The Winter Companion, due to release tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb 11), is up at https://austenprose.com/2020/02/10/th... (It's actually Victorian, but I guess it must qualify as "Austenesque" since it was assigned to me for the blog!)


message 30: by Chelsea (new)

Chelsea (crystal_dark) | 402 comments I just saw that Pride And Prejudice And Valentine's Day An Erotic Variation by G. Scott Gray Pride And Prejudice And Valentine's Day: An Erotic Variation is free if anyone is interested.


message 31: by J. W. (new)

J. W. Garrett (jeannewallacegarrett) | 447 comments Debbie, I had originally marked 'An Unsuitable Governess' as no-thank-you, but I'll try it at this reduced price. Thanks for the notification.

J. W. Garrett (jeannewallacegarrett) | 447 comments You have got to read this Valentine excerpt from Maria Grace. Not everyone receives her emails so I am including the link to her website. LOL! Wait for it. You will have to endure a bit of Lydia before you get to the nugget. However, it will be worth the wait. It is the very last that is so hilarious. OMG! What fun.
