Hello gentle readers!  I’m so honored to be taking part in a special cover reveal of The Darcy Monologues today!  My excitement and anticipation for this new release has been steadily growing ever since I learned about this project.  And to be honest, the torture has been acute!  Have you seen all the graphic teasers they are sharing?!?  

Gah!!!  How many more days???

 The Darcy Monologues 

Expected Release Date: May 22nd

Available for Pre-Order NOW!

~ Book Description ~

“You must allow me to tell you…”

For over two hundred years, Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy has captivated readers’ imaginations as the ultimate catch. Rich. Powerful. Noble. Handsome. And yet, as Miss Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” is established through Elizabeth Bennet’s fine eyes, how are we to know what his tortured soul is indeed thinking? How does Darcy progress from “She is tolerable: but not handsome enough to tempt me” to “I thought only of you”?

In this romance anthology, fifteen Austen-inspired authors assemble to sketch Darcy’s character through a series of re-imaginings, set in the Regency through contemporary times—from faithful narratives to the fanciful. Herein “The Darcy Monologues”, the man himself reveals his intimate thoughts, his passionate dreams, and his journey to love—all told with a previously concealed wit and enduring charm.

Stories by: Susan Adriani * Sara Angelini * J. Marie Croft * Karen M Cox * Jan Hahn * Jenetta James * Lory Lilian * KaraLynne Mackrory * Beau North * Ruth Phillips Oakland * Natalie Richards * Sophia Rose * Joana Starnes * Melanie Stanford * Caitlin Williams

~ Editor Bio ~

Christina Boyd wears many hats as she is an editor under her own banner The Quill Ink, a contributor to Austenprose, and a ceramicist and proprietor of Stir Crazy Mama’s Artworks. A life member of the Jane Austen Society of North America, Christina lives in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with her dear Mr. B, two busy teenagers, and a retriever named BiBi. Visiting Jane Austen’s England was made possible by her book boyfriend and star crush Henry Cavill when she won a trip to meet him on the London Eye in the spring of 2017.

And without further ado….here is the big reveal!!!

  • Woot woot!!  Isn’t it lovely?  I love the black and white and bold color!
  • I think the fact that the gentleman on the right looks like Henry Cavill is no small coincidence, don’t you? 😉
  • What Darcy POV stories are you most looking forward to in this anthology?  Regency Darcy?  Modern Darcy?  Married Darcy?  Tortured Darcy? 😉

As for me, I can’t wait to read them all!  What a terrific group of authors!  Christina and her team are really outdoing themselves!  #MustHavePatience

    YAY this is so fun to see and I am thrilled to be part of it.


    Woo hoo!! Pre-ordered!!


    Meredith, Everything looks beautiful on your site. Thank you for your enthusiasm for the project! And maybe subconsciously the jawline and chin dimple were because of Mr. Cavill, ha! But didn’t Shari Ryan at MadHAT Books do a gorgeous job with the cover?! So excited!


      Thank you so much, Christina! I’m honored to take part! 🙂 If you would have told me it was Henry Cavill on the right, I would have no problem believing you! 😉 Big compliments to Shari, I think she did such a beautiful job!


    This book looks great and I have read (and LOVED) things by a few of these authors and am looking forward to this book.


    I’m over the moon to be part of this! Huge thanks for the wonderful welcome, Meredith!! It truly is a stunning cover, Christina, Shari Ryan is so amazing! Hugs to everyone who’s making this beautiful dream come true, and I hope you’ll like Mr D’s Monologues <3


    Meredith, I love the pretty curtain graphic for the cover reveal – and I love that you’re part of our excitement. Thanks so much!


    My only problem is that I can’t figure out how to copy and past the above Ruth Phillips Oakland cover photo to my Pinterest Board. I did go to Christina’s board and copied what I found there…but does that count? So anxious to get this book in my hands. I am sure it will be more than a one day read.


      Yes, it counts! Hahahahaha! We won’t tell HOW you actually got any of the graphics. We just are thrilled you are doing it and supporting the authors. XO


      I don’t know if this will help, but I think if you hover the mouse over the image a Pinterest logo pops up asking if you want to Save. But that may be because I have a pinterest toolbar in my browser.

      It will be so exciting when the release date is finally here!!!


    Thanks for taking part in our cover reveal!


    Eeeee! Something for everyone. 😀 What a list of authors, exciting.


    So excited for this release! I think I will wait for the paperback!!! I know the wait will be longer…darn!


    Fabulous cover easily telling readers that the monologues are from Regency to modern. I agree that the list of authors is outstanding. Looking forward to your review .


    Whoa! Just saw the cover on my large PC monitor for the first time vs my phone. May have to make those gentlemen my screen saver. Thanks so much, Meredith, for participating in the cover reveal. Can’s wait to read Ruth’s story!


    Love this cover! And all the storylines revealed. I have pre ordered it so if by any chance it is released early (Christina???) I will know. I suppose that is wishful thinking but……..


    Thanks Meredith. 🙂 The book looks so exciting, so many great authors contributed to it. I’ve just pre-ordered.


    I can feel the excitement building as the press and blog comments grow. I look forward to this launch. However, not everyone tweets or has Facebook so not everyone will be able to join in the give-a-way. Just a thought. Congratulations to the many authors that contributed to this work and best wishes to the launch.


    What Meredith said! (“I think the fact that the gentleman on the right looks like Henry Cavill is no small coincidence, don’t you?”) *Snicker*


    Can’t wait to read each and everyone of these stories! How many more weeks????


    Thanks for being part of the big cover reveal Meredith. I love the two Darcy’s here, in fact I can’t decide which one I like best. This is such an exciting project and the cover looks so great on your blog.


      It is my pleasure, Caitlin! I’m so excited for all of you! 🙂 I love that there is more than one Darcy to admire on the cover!


    Excellent giveaway. Cannot wait for the release.


    Nah, patience is overrated. Must have TDM now. 😉 Thanks so much for hosting, Meredith. Love it that you could host us.

    Oh, that little teaser quote from Ruth’s story does have me all swoony for more.


      LOL! I need to change my hashtag! 😉 I’m so happy to take part in the special reveal! Can’t wait to read another one of your short stories, Sophia!!!


    Meredith – thanks for being part of the excitement for The Darcy Monologues! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the stories. I’m really excited to read something new from Ruth O 🙂


      Thank you, Karen! I’m so very excited for this project! I love the idea so much! So happy that you are one of the authors taking part! 🙂


    This post looks amazing, Meredith! Thank you for being part of this reveal. What’s better than a collection of stories devoted to Mr. Darcy?


      Thank you for including me, Claudine! 🙂 This is going to be such an AMAZING collection! Cannot wait to read it!


    Yay! Just pre-ordered my copy. I have no idea what type of Darcy each author has in store, but I am super excited to find out.


    I can hardly wait to get my hands on this. The author list is awesome!


    Oooo, this looks wonderful! Yummy cover, too! I’m looking forward to Regency Darcy’s innermost thoughts. 🙂

    Thanks for the great giveaway!


    What a great giveaway and it is so great to see so many work together to make the readers happy with many hours of reading material. This is wonderful on both sides of the fence, making readers happy and the joy of the authors in their pleasure of writing.
    Thank you once again for all of you for the love of Jane Austen.


    Great post quote and cover!


    Oh dear, it looks as if the interwebs have stolen my carefully crafted comment from last night! Ah well.

    Loving this multi-blog cover reveal so much, especially the teasers for each story. One thing I’m trying to bring to mind is this: if the gentleman on the right is reminiscent of Henry Cavill, who does the one on the left remind me of? I know he reminds me of someone, but it escapes me for the present. Any ideas anyone?


      Oh boo! I’m so sorry that happened! 🙁

      Ooh! Good question…he looks like he may have a little bit of a Hispanic ethnicity. 🙂


      My teen daughter says he reminds her of Chris Pine. Ha! But honestly, I just liked the jawline and eye. I didn’t want too much to take away from what everyone has in their own head as Darcy.


    Thanks so much for being a part of the big reveal, Meredith! I’m so excited to be a part of this project with so many authors whose work I respect and admire. This is going to be one I read and re-read frequently! And I absolutely cannot wait to see your thoughts on it!


      The pleasure is all mine, Beau! 🙂 I know I’ll be doing the same! Terrific job on all these graphics and teasers!!! I adore them!!!


    I am so happy to be a part of this project! I’m glad the cover is out at last; I’ve been itching to show it to everyone I know since I first saw it! Shari has mad skills. 🙂


    Love the cover! I’m so looking forward to reading this anthology!


    Love the cover! I’m so looking forward to reading it!
