This book isn’t coming out until June, but people are saying it’s my best yet.
Well, by “people” I mostly mean my mom, and I suspect she’s a little biased, seeing as how it’s dedicated to her.
Anyway, not out until June, but you could read it early if you win this lovely, lovely ARC. I’ll even sign it.
I’ll definitely put a killer unicorn bookmark inside, owing to the fact that I haven’t made For Darkness bookmarks yet.
(In passing, so there’s this video game called “The Darkness II” that I don’t know anything about, but I keep seeing advertisements for whenever I watch Hulu+, since I watch on a Playstation and it’s a Playstation game, so now whenever I call my new book “For Darkness”, which I do a lot, I get this little ping in my head of “We’ve come for the Darkness, Jackie,” which is the line of dialogue from the commercial. I doubt highly that these two things have anything in common with each other aside from the word “Darkness” though, since the video game appears to be about a hitman who can wield demonic forces.)
My new manuscript I usually call PIMP, which is a concept thing, like PAP; Carrie usually calls Poppy, which is a character thing; and my editor calls something else entirely based on its working title, which I totally love and hope I get to keep and not going to tell you. How’s that for being secretive?
Back to the ARC giveaway. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling us one of the following things:
1. What is your favorite “Jane Austen” moment? It does not have to be from the books proper. For instance, my first favorite Jane Austen moment is Captain Wentworth’s letter. My second favorite Jane Austen moment is the look Colin Firth’s Mr. Darcy gives to Jennifer Ehle’s Lizzie when she helps Georgiana play after Caroline Bingley makes a crack about Wickham at Pemberley. My third favorite Jane Austen moment is when Paul Rudd and Alicia Silverstone sit on the steps of her house. My fourth favorite is the scene in Emma when Mr Knightley almost, but does not quite, kiss Emma’s hand. My fifth is Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon, full stop. (I could go on. A lot. I shall spare you, though.)
2. If you do not have a favorite Jane Austen moment, explain yourself PLEASE.
