I’ve been waiting weeks to reveal the cover for my January 2013 release, and finally I have been given permission.  So, may I present AUSTENSIBLY ORDINARY.  Its release date is January 29, 2013, which is exactly two hundred years and ONE DAY after the publication of Pride & Prejudice!!

So? What do you think? I think it pairs well with AUSTENTATIOUS, and I love the colors!

The cover model definitely looks up to something! And I am THRILLED to have that quote from Sophie Jordan, whom Kensington clearly thinks is well-known enough as to make credentials superfluous. I hope so!

I don’t have galleys to give away yet, but I’m holding a giveaway anyway!

There is more than one way to enter (of course).

1. Leave me a comment here on the blog, letting me know what you think.

2. Post this giveaway to your Facebook page.

3. Post this giveaway to Twitter:  I just saw the cover of  AUSTENSIBLY ORDINARY and entered @a_goodnight’s galley giveaway!

4. Pin the cover of AUSTENSIBLY ORDINARY onto one of your Pinterest boards.

5. Share the cover or post the giveaway on your blog.

Each effort is worth one entry. If you’re the random winner drawn on July 4th, I will ship you out a galley as soon as I have them in my hot little hands.

And book bloggers: if you’re interested in receiving a galley for review, please let me know!

  1. Love the cover! Even more beautiful than the first!

  2. I have to agree with you, Alyssa. I love the colors and think it goes well with Austentatious. They are similar enough in looks to draw readers’ attention. Hmm. I wonder what your heroine is up to? By chance is the hero in this book as swoon-worthy as Sean MacInnes? (Just curious).
    Thanks so much for the giveaway! :)

  3. I tweeted this!

    Love the cover, and it does coordinate well with Austentatious. Congrats! January seems so far away but it’ll be here in a flash, I know.

  4. Can’t wait to read it!!! I’ll make it the book of the month on my little bitty bookclub page and with my Austenites book club:)

    I just started a blog for my bookclub on blogger too!!!

  5. WOW! Does she ever look like she’s up to something! I love this!

    I would love to BLOG about this… if that is a way to earn a galley. Be a part of your blog tour once again (I was very honored for Austentatious – one of my ALL TIME favs!)

    But I did comment… and tweeted… and posted on my Musings of a Book Lover and personal FB page!

    Also… you might want to check your own math, tee hee. I think you meant two HUNDRED years and one day after P&P was first published… not two years! 😀

    You Rock and I cannot wait!

  6. Love. This. Cover.

  7. The title + the cover art + “Sometimes you have to find your own happy ending.” = Trifect of AUSomeness (see what I did there?) 😉 Excited for you and can’t wait to read it!

  8. Oops. Left of the a in trifecta. :\

  9. It a beautiful cover! Yup, she’s definitely up to something! Can’t wait to find out what that might be! hehe!

  14. Love the cover, Alyssa. I wonder what is the storyline about. Is it an Austen-inspired tale or a contemporary tale of Pride and Prejudice perhaps?

    I will blog about it soon.

  15. Oh my, that is a gorgeous cover! LOVE it! :) Her face makes me want to know what she’s up to…I seem to think we could get in trouble if we were hanging out in real life 😉

  16. Alyssa Goodnight

    Lúthien, it’s a contemporary Austen-inspired tale loosely based on Emma.

  17. Stephanie Littlejohn
