Project Darcy - Cover Reveal!

It suddenly looks very autumnal here in the UK, though the temperature is surprisingly high. I love this season - outside the leaves are turning to shades of red, russet and lemon, mornings are misty, and the nights are drawing in. What better time than to curl up with a new book!
Project Darcy - Jane Odiwe

I'm so excited to reveal the cover of my upcoming book, Project Darcy! In this special year of the 200th anniversary, I wanted to celebrate with a 'darling child' of my own.

 It is high summer when Ellie Bentley joins an archaeological dig at Jane Austen’s childhood home. She’s always had a talent for ‘seeing’ into the past and is not easily disturbed by her encounters with ‘Mr Darcy’s ghost’ at the house where she’s staying. When Ellie travels into the past she discovers exactly what happened whilst Jane danced her way through the snowy winter of 1796. As Steventon Rectory and all its characters come to life, Ellie discovers the true love story lost in Pride and Prejudice – a tale which has its own consequences for her future destiny, changing her life beyond imagination.

I've had a very exciting week - with Mr Darcy's Secret being featured on BBC, The One Show, along with fellow author friends, Amanda Grange, and Karen Doornebos.

And then a fellow Austenite on twitter, @austengeek, sent me a lovely tweet about Willoughby's Return having a mention in Entertainment Weekly in the US! Great excitement, too, for many of my fellow authors on Austen Authors - Regina Jeffers, Alyssa Goodnight, Mary Lydon Simonsen, and author friends, Margaret C. Sullivan, Amanda Grange, Kara Louise, and Vera Nazarian.

The cover is beautiful, Jane. Is that Tom Lefroy's portrait I see on the cover?

And congratulations on being featured in the media. I look forward to the launch of Project Darcy.

Thank you, Cassandra-so kind of you!
Luthien84- I knew you'd guess the identity of that gorgeous young man - so glad you like my portrait, and thank you for your kind words!
