    A bunch of these are new and are now on my “to-read” list.

    The pub rights to Affinity and Affection have been purchased by Sourcebooks and retitled “The Truth About Mr. Darcy” and will be in stores in May 2011. Beautiful new cover. (I had to retype my comment b/c of typos. I put my glasses on.)


    Thanks for letting me know, Mary! I’ll keep it on this list until I make the one for 2011!


    Thank you for putting this list together! I have several of these on the list (I am partial to the sequels vs variations). I just started the Elizabeth Aston series and am currently reading a Sense and Sensibility sequel with Marianne and Wiloughby meeting again. Great list, look forward to the next one 🙂


    Hi, Meredith! Thank you so much for including Affinity and Affection in your wonderful list. Thank you too, Mary, for pointing out the title change. As Mary mentioned, A&A will be published by Sourcebooks in May 2011 as “The Truth About Mr. Darcy”. I know there has been quite a bit of confusion and frustration surrounding changes made to other titles, and in an effort to lessen that frustration, I will keep everyone posted on what changes, if any, will be forthcoming. From what I understand, Sourcebooks will be making a few grammatical alterations to the original text, but I have no idea if they have plans to alter content and structure as well. Like I mentioned, I will definitely be keeping interested readers notified, so there won’t be any unexpected duplications on their bookshelves. Thanks again, Meredith and Mary!


    Thank you Shanna! I’m glad you found the list helpful! Are reading Willoughby’s Return? I loved that one! There are so many sequels to choose from, isn’t there?

    Hi Susan! Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my little blog! Best of luck with the publishing of The Truth About Mr. Darcy. I am sure your readers appreciate you letting them know about the title change and hopefully understand the position you are in. Affinity and Affection had such a nice ring to it, I quite liked the original title!


    Thanks, Meredith! And it was my pleasure to stop by – you have a wonderful blog! The last thing I want is for any of my readers to unknowingly spend their hard-earned money on a book they already have on their bookshelves. It can be a very frustrating experience, and one easily diverted. As far as the change of title goes, I do happen to have a very difficult time coming up with titles for my stories on my own, so I don’t mind one bit that Sourcebooks wants to do it for me. (I happened to like “Affinity and Affection” myself, but can’t deny that seeing “Mr. Darcy” on the cover of any book is definitely an attention grabber!)

    If anyone is interested, I have just recently created a web page for my book, where I will eventually put any news or updates. It’s pretty sparse at the moment, but I hope everyone will bear with me while I navigate through this process and figure it all out. (I’m hopelessly technologically challenged!) Here’s the address:


    Thanks, Susan! I added your site to my Austenesque Authors List! The cover of your book is gorgeous! Best of luck to you!


    Wow! Thank you so much, Meredith! And I have to agree with you (quite shamelessly) about the cover – the people at Sourcebooks did a beautiful job. I couldn’t be more thrilled.


    amazing! this many #austenesque reads just in ’08? luv how you’ve classified them making it so much easier to find what we’re looking for + to make recommendations for your #Austenesque posts. it’s a resource i’ll return too often…
