News and Updates: Saturday, April 4, 2020

Welcome to (or back to) Austen Promises! Below are my news and updates for this week. Enjoy!


I hope you’re doing well. It was beautiful here on Friday, sunny and almost warm! I took Jasper outside just to catch a few rays. <3

In writing news, I completed the first draft of Darcy’s Uneasy Betrothal last Saturday. Woohoo! <3

I have no set date of publication yet, but I can tell you it won’t be for a couple weeks. I’m still considering doing a pre-order. I’ll let you know by next weekend if I decide to do it.

As soon as I get edits completed and get the book formatted and ebooks sent to my patrons, I will begin posting at darcyandlizzy. Forum posting will coincide with publishing, but that happens sometimes. 🙂


I have begun plotting a new book. I’m excited about the premise. <3


My Austen Authors post was this past Monday. If you’ve not had a chance to drop by and read it, hop on over and check it out. I’d love to hear your comments about it!

I don’t have a lot of personal news again. I have found my emotions seesawing every time I go out, which has ended up being two or three times a week. I’ve had to double down on Bible study and prayer, and am searching out good sermons and podcasts to add to my days. For me, this crisis is about far more than remaining healthy. It’s become a clear signal to grow closer to God. He is the only one who is going to be able to get me through it without losing my sanity and good name.

I am down to two rolls of toilet paper, but my good friend, Rose Fairbanks, is sending me a few rolls to get me through the next couple weeks. I’m hoping I’ll soon be able to find some without making an insane early-morning trip to a store. Otherwise, it’ll be washrags and bleach water for me. LOL

How are things going for you? Are you stocked up with groceries, as much as you are able? Are you keeping busy while stuck at home? Please do hit reply and let me know you’re okay. I love hearing from my readers, and it’s especially important right now.
