Amazon Availability

Amazon is now taking orders for The Ruling Passion. We will make it available on Kindle. Other E-book versions are being looked at.

As for those purchased through our website, they are sent out within 24 hours (excluding weekends). I'm happy to autograph and or/ inscribe copies of The Ruling Passion and Fandango. It is possible to make that designation when purchasing, or send me a separate email.

Thanks so much for your kind words!

The Ruling Passion Availability

We will make The Ruling Passion and Fandango in Ebook form. It will also be sold through Amazon and B&N. Although I can't give an exact date, we hope to have them well in place before Christmas. My website can now accommodate overseas and Canadian sales.

I will be signing books at Bookpeople in Austin 7pm November 23. Bookpeople now carry Fandango and should have The Ruling Passion on their shelves by the end of this week (Nov 18).

I would love to have a chance to chat in person.

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!

I am sixty-eight chapters into The Ruling Passion...twelve more to go.

Tuesday, March 1, 2011


For those readers who have read my books several times, do you recall if there was ever an encounter between Wickham and Juliette?

I was quoted (correctly) as saying that The Ruling Passion was to take us to the Darcy children's romances, say fifteen years into their future. As it stands now, that is highly unlikely. I am far too slow a writer (and can't seem to keep the Darcys out of bed long enough) to take them that far.

As my first book premised, marriage is not where romance ends, it is where life begins.

The ruling Passion, be it what it will
The ruling passion conquers reason still.

In England, late Regency was a dicey time for all classes. As much as Mr. Darcy would like to stay far from London, he cannot. Menace is afoot and misapprehensions abound, therefore The Ruling Passion will only take us another five years into their lives.

Thanks so much for your encouragement!
