Holidays at Pemberley - Available next week?

So I really tried to do a more formal book release this time, but the good people at Outskirts seem determine to thwart my best intentions. The long and short of the situation is that the new book, Holidays at Pemberley, or Third Encounters: A Tale of Less Pride & Prejudice Concludes, might be available as soon as this week's end. I'm not prepared for this, but you, my dear readers and followers, might do me an enormous favor right now by adding the book on Goodreads, the only venue where the book is currently listed. The beginning of the book is available on this blog (check the tabs at the top). Your support is why I keep writing, so please except this advance thank you. Stay tuned for more information soon, and please make use of this handy "add Book" widget, courtesy of the lovely people at Goodreads:

Holidays at Pemberley, or Third Encounters: A Tale of Less Pride and Prejudice Concludes

Here's the blurb from the back cover:

"Charlotte smiled from across the room at the man’s obvious devotion to her friend. Such attachment was very charming, undoubtedly, and when it came to an end, as it was most certain to do, they would have abundant good fortune to keep the inevitable aggravations with each other to a minimum."

Both a Christmas celebration and conclusion to Tales of Less Pride & Prejudice, Holidays at Pemberley begins where First Impressions ends, with the marriage Fitzwilliam Darcy to Elizabeth Bennet, and spans the course of Second Glances to conclude their story. As the Darcys enjoy their first years of marriage, Charlotte Lucas is often invited to join them. Watching as the Bennet sisters, one by one, marry to both outrageous advantage and with great affection, her only ambition remains independence and respectability, stubbornly blind to the virtues of a love match. Miss Lucas thinks she has found an acceptable husband in David Westover, rector of Kympton and determined bachelor, but he remains oblivious to the implications of befriending a Miss Lucas. It may mean some heartbreak, but if Mrs. Darcy's pragmatic friend will only surrender to Cupid, she may find wild fantasies do come true, even for ladies dangerously close to thirty.
