News and Updates: Saturday, May 1, 2021


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

How are things?

In writing news, I wrote 1,055 words last Saturday. Life got in the way of writing the rest of the week, sadly.


The good news is, I had a coaching call today and the strengths coach was able to help me find a way to improve my writing habits, as long as I do the work. It will take time and some mental shifts, but I finally have hope that a writing career can be a long-term thing for me. There has been a very real fear that I would have to go get a “real” job and stop writing.


Today is the last day to get Darcy’s Adventures for $2.99. Tomorrow I will be changing the price to $7.99.

I have already reset the price for May’s promo book, The Darcy Marriage Series, to $2.99. This book bundle has a new cover and a spiffed up interior. Starting tomorrow, it will be in a Bookfunnel promo. As with April’s promo, it would help me out if you clicked this link. You don’t have to buy anything, and it is free to click. Every visit to the link increases my score and makes it easier to get into future promos. These are all supposed to be sweet boxed sets. There are romances and mysteries, including cozy mysteries. Leenie Brown has a bundle in this one, too … one of her Dash of Darcy collections.


I forgot to say in my last newsletter, but this past Monday was my Austen Authors post. The topic was drinking chocolate. <3 Feel free to drop by and take a gander, if you like. 🙂

This week has been wild, weather-wise. I was wearing shorts and tank tops Tuesday and Wednesday, and today it never hit 50 degrees. We have a freeze warning for tonight! Brrr …


Is anything new or exciting going on with you? Feel free to drop me a line and let me know. I love to hear from my readers! <3
