Hi dear friends! I’m so excited to welcome Heather Moll – a special debut author – to Austenesque Reviews today! I was so excited to see that Heather is publishing her first book with Meryton Press! Especially so because she was a long-time reader and participant on my blog. (Heather, I looked it up, your first comment here was in August 2011!) I think it is so awesome that we’ve “known” each other for so long and that now you are visiting my blog as an author!! Congrats, my friend! I’m thrilled and honored to host your cover reveal today!
~ From the Author ~
Thank you so much Meredith for hosting a cover reveal for His Choice of a Wife and for letting me visit with your readers. I’ve been a fan of this blog for years and it gives me a thrill—mixed with a healthy amount of butterflies in my stomach—to be on this side of one of your posts. I’ve loved Jane Austen for fifteen years and have been writing about her characters for almost as long, so I am very proud to share my first story with all of you.
This project began years ago as a quiet little hobby to occupy me as a new stay-at-home mom, but it grew into something much more! What started as a short story— that I still wasn’t certain I would let anyone read— quickly moved beyond what needed to happen to get a still-improving Darcy and Elizabeth together sooner after Hunsford. What if Wickham suspects Darcy’s interest? What could happen in Brighton? What else could go wrong before the inevitable happy ever after?
This Austen and JAFF community has brought a lot of joy into my life and I’m so happy to contribute something of my own and share it and its gorgeous cover with my fellow Austenesque Admirers here today!
