Darcy & Elizabeth: The Ruling Passion is finished!

Yea! I just finished writing The Ruling Passion. Now I will be editing and checking continuity. My editor will be on it like a duck on a June bug as soon as I turn it over to her. That, of course, is the rocky part--wresting it from my grip. If anyone can, Terry can!

I projected 80 chapters, but right now it stands at 86. I will be putting the new cover up on the main page of my website ASAP so everyone can have a look at it.

I can't wait for the grand unveiling!

Can't wait to see the new cover and better yet, I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCT! Congrats on finishing yet another masterpiece (I'm absolutely certain!)

Much <3

I absolutely can't wait for the next installment! Thank you for the regular updates - you have no idea how much it helps make the wait seem a little bit faster! :)

I almost passed out when I read this! Thank you for another book, I love love your version of the Darcy's. I can not wait to get this book block out the world and and become a fly on the Darcy's wall for a few days.

I have checked your blog everyday! I am so excited. I am re-reading your previous books just to be prepared for the new one. Do you have a round-about date of when it will hit the press?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I read most P&P fan fiction, but I confess, yours is by far my favorite! I know it's a bit racy, but you have such a wonderful ability to bring these characters to life. I eagerly anticipate diving into "The Ruling Passion". I do so hope Lady Catherine finally gets her full comeuppance. I will be quite vexed if Cyril Smead gets away with his shenanigans, and I'd like to see Wickham suffer even more than he already has. I needn't state that I am atwitter with the thought of spending more time with Mr. Darcy! Thank you again! (and please hurry the release date!)

p.s. If I discover anything untoward happened between Darcy and Celeste Roux I think I will die! (I know I sound a bit like Lydia, but I truly don't know how I shall cope if the story advances in that direction!)

Congratulations on finishing The Ruling Passion!
I know that it has been a long road to get it completed but I am confidant that it is well worth the journey.

Anxiously awaiting it's release...

PS. Any chance any or all of your books will be released on NOOK or as iTUNES audiobooks???

I am so VERY excited for this book! I actually had the sequels for a few years before I read them, I was a little wary of a sequel to one of my favorites. I was wrong to wait so long! You managed to keep the P and P world alive and you added dimensions to the story that are both realistic and completely enthralling! I read them both in a couple of sleep deprived days and now I can't wait for the next one to come out! Keep up the AMAZING work and thank you for your creativity!

Lola said...

Yayyyyy!!! I can't wait! I've been reading the 1st book for the second time on my Kindle, a few pages at a times.

I love this continuing story! Linda is so talented! Please hire Kate Redding to narrate these 3 stories for Audible.com. She did such a great job with P & P.

sonaS said...

Heheheheheeeee!!! I CANNOT wait!!! I love your sequel. I've read alot of others already and yours are by far my Fav. It is exactly how I see Darcy and lizzy in their marriage. Thank you so much for another book! Hurry with the editing, pls.

OMG!! I just got a Nook (Barnes and Nobles' e-reader tablet) and I happened to be just looking up other sequels for P&P. I happened upon your books and I said to myself "Oh, that she would write another sequel so we can know how the twins are. Oh well. I should get the 2 though for my e-book" (even though I own the books!) HOW FRIGGIN' EXCITING to learn on your page that there is a 3rd INSTALLMENT ON THE WAY!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Okay, I will be checking back DAILY to find out when this book hits! Please make sure its available on Nook!

This is awesome! So excited, I will start re-reading! :)

Sarah said...

Yay! I have been waiting for this to come out for years! I have checked at Barnes and Nobles several times in the past few years thinking it might have been released. Do you how long it takes to edit and publish? I know you might not be able to predict the timeline, but it would give me something to look forward too!

I can't wait to see where you take the Darcy's next!

When can we expect to actually read the book. I have been waiting for a long time it seems. Usually this turns me off of authors but I have patiently stuck by your side. Please talk to us more! This waiting game is driving me crazy.

Love your work.

Just finished Darcy & Elizabeth: Nights and Days at Pemberly yesterday and was Amazed! It literally took me a week to finish it because it was that good I couldn't stop! I am so excited to hear you have a third on it's way. Fingers crossed for a speedy publishing.
