It's a Jane Austen Halloween!

October 31, 2011 - Amy Phelps
Get some Jane Austen Halloween thrills with three new books!

Do you like "Pride and Prejudice?" Have a love of Mr. Darcy? Want a paranormal version of him? Then check out "Mr. Darcy's Bite" by Mary Lydon Simonsen for the werewolf version or "Mr. Darcy, Vampyre" by Amanda Grange.

In "Mr. Darcy's Bite," Elizabeth Bennett is about to give up on the thought of Darcy ever prosposing marriage. He's been acting so strange and distant lately... and that's when Elizabeth finds out that her would-be paramour is a werewolf! Not only is he concerned about what he will do once the full moon comes, but werewolves are being hunted all over the country. And when Elizabeth marries him, she is getting involved in more danger than she thought. Will their love survive?

In "Mr. Darcy, Vampyre," Elizabeth was excited to marry her love, Mr. Darcy. Until he starts behaving rather strangely. He will not visit her in her bedchamber. His relatives seem upset that he has married her. And soon enough she is staying in a dark castle with her brooding husband and has attracted the attention of the strange Prince Ficenzi. What will Elizabeth do when she learns the truth about her husband's dark kiss?

Both books combine the fun of the paranormal creature with the familiar of Austen's beloved characters in a unique way that will appeal to fans.

Or you can go the literary mash-up way with "Emma and the Vampires" by Jane Austen and Wayne Josephson.

This time, the Austen story meeting the paranormal is the beloved "Emma," about a young woman who delights in making matches in her small town, some successful, others not, while stumbling upon a romance all of her own. But this time, some of the dashing young men involved are vampires - though they don't often drink human blood - and there is the danger surrounding them that the wrong kind of vampire will come calling. I am a big fan of the book "Emma," and I liked this humorous vampire romance version.

All three books are published by Sourcebooks and are $14.99. So get literary with your Halloween fiction!
