The growth of online book sales and social media have given authors unparalleled opportunities to promote their books. One of the best innovations in online book marketing is the blog tour. In its briefest form, a blog tour allows an author to virtually visit lots of communities where the host – a blogger – will introduce him or her to a new audience of readers who are likely to be interested in the author’s book.
With the release of “The Disappearance of Georgiana Darcy,” this week, my blog tour begins tomorrow. Besides my presence on Austen Authors, below are the stops for my blog tour. I hope you will take in some of the stops. There are lots of giveaways of the novel for those who leave comments. So, sign on often.

Shackled in the dungeon of a macabre castle with no recollection of her past, a young woman finds herself falling in love with her captor – the estate’s master. Yet, placing her trust in him before she regains her memory and unravels the castle’s wicked truths would be a catastrophe.
Far away at Pemberley, the Darcys happily gather to celebrate the marriage of Kitty Bennet. But a dark cloud sweeps through the festivities: Georgiana Darcy has disappeared without a trace. Upon receiving word of his sister’s likely demise, Darcy and wife, Elizabeth, set off across the English countryside, seeking answers in the unfamiliar and menacing Scottish moors.
How can Darcy keep his sister safe from the most sinister threat she has ever faced when he doesn’t even know if she’s alive? True to Austen’s style and rife with malicious villains, dramatic revelations and heroic gestures, this suspense-packed mystery places Darcy and Elizabeth in the most harrowing situation they have ever faced – finding Georgiana before it is too late.
