I am hoping that your affection for period romance, adventure, a dollop of humor and a hint of mystery will incline you toward purchasing Linda Mako Kendrick’s new novella, VANITY AND VENGEANCE, which is a sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE IN FOUR FORMATS: AudioBook; Kindle e-Book; Standard Print; and Large Print. IN ORDER TO PURCHASE THE CORRECT PRINT COPY, PLEASE CLICK ON THE AUTHOR’S NAME, LINDA MAKO KENDRICK (which appears in BLUE LETTERS above the picture of the Cover) -- this will take you to a page where there are all the buttons for all the versions. Alternatively (and this one is extremely wonky, and sometimes does not work as described herein), you can click on the "Paperback" button above, which will show you TWO entries: KINDLE and PAPERBACK. There is a tiny karat mark in front of the word PAPERBACK. Click on the karat, and you should get a drop-down that lists the Standard Print and (underneath it) the LARGE PRINT. After doing all that, THANK YOU for purchasing my book. I agree that this is incredibly challenging, and I have asked Amazon to do something about it to make it more user-friendly. Amazon is incredibly responsive, and I’m sure they will get to it as soon as they can -- but, there is a lot going on with their publishing arm right now, so it may take them...awhile. I appreciate your understanding and patience. VANITY AND VENGEANCE begins ten years after Pride and Prejudice ended: Darcy and Elizabeth are happily married, but Georgiana (his beautiful and wealthy younger sister) does not seem interested in marriage; Lady Catherine’s daughter Anne has completely given up on her romantic hopes; and, Elizabeth’s sister Jane (happily married to Charles Bingley) has adopted an orphaned child. It is Georgiana’s interest in a poor and unpredictable young man, and her courtship by a wealthy older man, that drives the story forward. Along the way, the Darcys encounter a vengeful Frenchman, family members both deceitful and loyal, and one very determined horse. The story is told with a nod and a smile, extracting lines and situations from Pride and Prejudice and reimagining them in a slightly different context. Those who have never read the original will not find themselves baffled or encumbered, but those who have read Pride and Prejudice will recognize the references and appreciate the additional layer of "insider’s humor". As a nod to Miss Austen, who enjoyed referencing the Language of Flowers in her works, all the Chapter Titles are Flowers, and all the Flowers have relevant meanings. For example, Chapter One is Daffodil, which means "New Beginnings". Why is VANITY AND VENGEANCE worthy of your attention? That is such a hard question. All I can say is, I liked the heroines, I despised the villain, and I couldn’t wait for Wickham to get the crap kicked out of him (well, that’s a modern description of what happened – the writing of the book channels Miss Austen and does not use that kind of language). Why did I write it? That is a much easier question to answer: My mother asked me to. (She wanted to know what happened to Darcy’s little sister, Georgiana.) By the way, if you do read the book -- notice the Chapter Headings; They make wonderful use of The Language of Flowers!
