Twisted Austen 2013! Jane & Bingley: Something Truly Unsettling

I've decided to call my Halloween tales a la Jane "Twisted Austen" with every intention of making this an annual event (we'll see how that goes). At least for this year, Jane & Bingley: Something Slightly Unsettling is well underway, and I thought I'd better stop and announce it now, before my mind gets completely swept away with the Holidays at Pemberley release (still can't say exactly when, but very soon, my friends: that seems certain). As you see, I've already given the blog a quick facelift in preparation.

I feel a bit like a broken record here, but I can't actually say when Jane & Bingley will start posting. Not until I've finished writing it, and I've got a few thousand words to go. However, I can say with certainty that the conclusion will post on October 31st, at which time ebook versions will become available for free on Goodreads (here's the link to the book's listing:, and for as cheap as they will allow me to sell it for Kindle and Nook, currently $0.99, just as I did last year for Emma & Elton: Something Truly Horrid.

As you might gather from the differing subtitles, this year's offering is not quite as shocking a last's, but that does not mean the tenderhearted should proceed without caution. After all, there is some leniency allowed by fans in what befalls Miss Woodhouse. Miss Bennet, on the other hand, is rather more sacred ground.What did dear, sweet Jane do to deserve such treatment at my hands? You'll have to read the book to find out. I'll share more, including the start date and an excerpt, in early October.

Can't wait for the mayhem? Why not relish the horror of Emma & Elton in the meantime?


  1. Love that this will be annual event! And I love how all your covers have a similar feel to them. Can't wait!

    1. Thanks Meredith! I can't take credit for the covers. They are the work of Glenn Dellon of Dellon Designs, an old and dear friend. I doubt I would have managed to publish the first book without his assistance.
