Twisted Austen 2018! Young Wickham

Oh, wow! This is super last minute. Somehow or other, I have managed to finish this story in time for Twisted Austen to start (on time!) on October 24rd. This year's story is, as always, a bit of a brain tease. It's called Young Wickham, is a Pride & Prejudice/Mansfield Park mashup, and will certainly defy your expectations. I can't wait to hear what readers think!

As usual, the story will be posted in eight parts, the final on Halloween (check out my Twisted Austen page above for information on previous years). Along the way we will have a few giveaways, including free copies of the ebook, some of my other books, and these super sweet Halloweeny clothespins I purchased here in Switzerland for the occasion. Please check back for all the details and thank you for joining me for the party!

Correction: Sometime or another, I apparently forgot how to count. I originally listed that start date for posts as the 23rd. The correct date is October 24th. I am sorry for any confusion and none more so than that in my head.

Meet the Darcy family fifteen years after the conclusion of Pride and Prejudice. Anxious to assist a sister in distress, they invite Lydia's eldest son to come live at Pemberley. Can young Wickham rectify the wrongs of the past, or is history doomed to repeat itself?


  1. I’m so looking forward to this. I love the clothes pegs. I was lucky enough to win the Christmas decorations you gave away and they are absolutely gorgeous (although I will now have to admire them in photos as my two little grandsons in Australia saw them while they were here and insisted they needed them for their tree :) )
    When will you start posting?

  2. I'm now trying on my tablet so fingers crossed.
    I'm looking forward to reading this even though he isn't my favourite character :) :)
    I love the clothes peg characters. You have some lovely original stuff. I absolutely loved the Christmas ornaments I was lucky enough to win, although I will now have to admire them by photo as my two little Australian grandsons also loved them when they were here and insisted they would look better on their tree.
    Well as you probably know 5 & 3 year olds can be VERY persuasive! :)
    When all you start posting your story?

  3. Believe it or not, Glynis, I buy the ornaments and clothes pins at my local supermarket. They’re just too sweet not to buy and perfect giveaway fodder. I’m so pleased both you and your grandsons enjoyed them!

    Posts begin on the 23rd. Thanks for celebrating with me!

  4. This has an interesting premise. Hiw close will this young man measure up to his parents?

    1. Thanks, Patty! Sorry this took so long to publish. I missed it, somehow.
