  1. Monica, I am beside myself with excitement over this anthology!! All my favorite authors collaborating together to produce one spectacular product!! It is an Austenesque dream come true! Congrats on being a part of it all!

  2. I must echo Meredith's sentiments. The trouble is that 2011 is still so far away. I can't wait to read the collection!

  3. Congratulations, Monica! I really liked both The Other Mr. Darcy and The Darcy Cousins, so I "definitely" know that they made an excellent choice! ;-)

  4. Congratulations Monica. I am looking forward to your story.

  5. I'm looking forward to the anthology, too. I can't wait to read all the other stories, so I share your enthusiasm, Alexa and Meredith.

    Julia, very nice of you to say so. I'm glad you enjoyed both books.

    Laurel Ann -- congratulations to you for putting this whole thing together!

  6. I just want to add my congratulations - looking forward to seeing us both in print together!
