In which the Editrix engages in shameless self-promotion

January 26, 2011

Because for what else do we blog, but to notice other authors’ books and put our own forward in return?

There Must Be Murder by Margaret C. SullivanWe have received two very kind reviews for our recent publication, There Must Be Murder. Laurel Ann Nattress’ review on Austenprose said:

Sullivan has captured the charm and endearing delight of Austen’s characters beautifully, added new ones rich in folly and nonsense, and a Newfoundland dog named MacGuffin who steals every scene. The numerous illustrations by Cassandra Chouinard are enchanting. My only disappointment was in the length. It was over much too quickly.

Alexa Adams, author of P&P variation First Impressions, also enjoyed our novella.

In Ms. Sullivan’s hands, the Tilney’s marriage lives up to all the promise with which Austen infused it. Romantic while not being tawdry, mysterious without relying on needless drama, There Must Be Murder is a beautiful and loving homage to both Jane Austen and her first full-length novel.

Thanks to both ladies for the kind reviews! There Must Be Murder is available from Librifiles and Amazon. If ordered from Librifiles, use the code 95Y8NF33 to get a 20% discount from the list price (this works for all Librifiles books, by the bye). You can also get the DRM-free ebook at Girlebooks, and it is also available on Smashwords and as a NookBook.

The Jane Austen Handbook by Margaret C. SullivanWe would also like to present to our Gentle Readers’ notice the rejacketed The Jane Austen Handbook, which will be re-released in March 2011. It will be interesting to see how it is received post-zombie revolution. ;-) One item of note: it will have a Kindle edition! And we hope other ebook formats as well. (We asked for that particularly.)

    You’re very welcome! I look forward to continuing to enjoy the book through all the rereads I am sure to do down the road.

    Mags, how perfect! I loved the early chapters when you posted them here back in the day. Can I tell everybody I meet that I knew you back when? :D I shall require your signature on my copy, of course. ; )

    Congratulations on your achievement.

    The Editrix is now required to write another adventure for Rev. & Mrs. Tilney. Please.
