Hi friends! I know it is a little late in the month to be sharing the agenda, but that’s because I was too busy starting the month with two lovely author visits – did you see them?

I hope you all had a lovely October! Did you do anything fun?

I’m happy to say that I feel like I kept up with blogging and reading better in October!! I think it helps that we are starting to feel more fall weather. 🍂 I’m staying in more, instead of spending the day at the beach. 😉 📚 📚 📚

Happy Friday, everyone! I am super excited to welcome back author Leslie Diamond to Austenesque Reviews today!! As you may have seen Leslie has a new book that just came out – Unwrapping Mr. Darcy, and it looks like a wonderful book to enjoy this upcoming holiday season!! It’s not too soon to start reading Christmas books and listening to Christmas music, is it? 🎄😃🎄😃 I’m especially excited about this story – not only because it is by Leslie Diamond and is a modern Christmas Pride and Prejudice story, but also because there seems to be some secret gift giving, which I think is so much fun (also there is a cat featured on the cover and I hear Lizzy is fond of cats!)!! I hope you enjoy Leslie’s post as she shares more about Unwrapping Mr. Darcy!

Thanks so much, Meredith, for having me today! Unwrapping Mr. Darcy is finally released and I hope everyone is enjoying reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I love fluff and so often I write stories where an outside force keeps ODC apart, and I really wanted to write something where they got more in their own way—like in Pride and Prejudice. This book started out as a quick 4-part short story that I expanded into a full-length book. I had to change a few things when expanding it but that was part of the challenge. If you haven’t read it, I hope you’ll give it a try this holiday season 🙂

Just for fun, I interviewed Charlotte, Elizabeth’s childhood friend and current executive assistant and she gave us the scoop on Elizabeth. I hope you enjoy it. Continue reading »
