This has been a really amazing month so far. I met my new publisher, Avon/HarperCollins, last week and I’m delighted to say that they’re going to publish my new novel, A Weekend with Mr Darcy, in September which means I’d better get a move on with my rewrites! This is my new romantic comedy about a group of Jane Austen addicts who meet and fall in love at a conference in Hampshire, and it’s the first in a trilogy about Austen fans.
The research has been so much fun. As well as reading all of Jane Austen’s wonderful novels, I’ve been watching all the TV and film adaptaions again and visiting Chawton, Winchester and Bath. And I’m really excited about the week in Lyme Regis we’ve booked where we’ve got an apartment overlooking the Cobb. Sometimes, writing is so much fun, it couldn’t possibly be considered work!
