Happy Birthday, Jane Austen! Release Day for THE PROUD AND THE PREJUDICED with 99¢ Limited Time Offer

Greetings, dear readers! 
It is, indeed, Jane Austen's birthday; but since she isn't around to accept a gift, I have one for you!

As you may have heard, All My Tomorrows, the critically-acclaimed modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (a semifinalist - among 20 in a field of 10,000 - in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards) has been retired. Today, December 16th, for Miss Austen's birthday, I am releasing an expanded and enhanced version of that "masterpiece" entitled The Proud and the Prejudiced: A Modern Twist on Pride and Prejudice!

The Proud and the Prejudiced has 9500 more words, 3 additional chapters, and 4 more scenes of our hero and heroine battling their pride and prejudices as well as their intense attraction to one another.

The retail price of this eBook is a mere $2.99; however, because I know so many of you have already had the pleasure of reading All My Tomorrows, for two weeks only, all ebook formats will be available for only 99¢! That's right - something like 2/3rds off the regular price. (Math is not my strong-suit.)

Now just a disclaimer: Nothing has been revised in the book our heroine is reading (the book-within-the-book) The Edge of Darkness. That remains "as is," an homage to the Sidney Sheldon-type melodramatic novels of the '70s and '80s.

If you have already read All My Tomorrows, I believe you will enjoy the enhancements while reminiscing about the original. If this is your initial acquaintance with the story, I do hope you like my modern spin on Pride and Prejudice!

About The Proud and the Prejudiced

A Modern Twist on Pride and Prejudice
“Engagingly written & entertaining: Laugh-out-loud funny and filled with endearing characters, the novel’s greatest strength is its masterful dialogue and the banter between the players. Skillfully rendered love scenes add heat to the romances, which the author keeps interesting through a roller coaster of plot twists.” – Publishers Weekly

All My Tomorrows is losing the ratings war.

For headwriter Alice McGillicutty, the past year has had enough drama. Her mother passed away, her last relationship ended in disaster, and now poor ratings are catapulting her long-running soap opera toward cancellation.

For comfort and creative inspiration, she begins reading The Edge of Darkness, an old melodramatic paperback she found among her mother’s belongings.

When scandal rips Hollywood bad boy Peter Walsingham off the tabloids and into her studio, Alice doubts the small screen is big enough for his ego – or his entourage. In their battle of pride and prejudice, will Peter’s vanity and arrogance compel Alice to write him out of her script, or can she find a role for him in All My Tomorrows?

This contemporary romance not only follows Alice and Peter as they wrestle with misunderstandings, pride, and prejudices, but also the trials and travails of Alexandra, the heroine of the absurdist novel ‘The Edge of Darkness.’ Full chapters of the book-within-the-book are included as Alice reads and allows that story to influence her own.

Though the plot of the primary novel is vaguely reminiscent of Pride and Prejudice, Peter and Alice are no Darcy and Elizabeth but fully-formed characters from the twenty-first century.

The Proud and the Prejudiced is an expanded an enhanced version of the previously-titled All My Tomorrows.

“A thoroughly entertaining read – Peter and Alice have a fun and feisty relationship. Their confrontations are full of snappy dialogue and a tension that is more longing than overtly sexual. But when the sparks do fly, these two light up the room!” – InD’Tale Magazine

“5 out of 5 stars: Solidified the thoughts I had after reading Pulse and Prejudice: Saucier is a master storyteller. Her ability to keep the reader engaged throughout both works is fantastic.” – Austenprose

“In the mood for an absorbing drama with unpredictable twists and intense romances? Originative, unique, and remarkable – a Pride and Prejudice modern adaptation you do not want to miss! You will find much pleasure and enjoyment in this clever and inventive adaptation! I sure did!” – Austenesque Reviews

“Saucier tells a wonderful love story with a sensual flare that warms the heart. Romance at its best delivered on a silver platter.” – My Book Reviews

“Although it has plenty of light, funny moments, it also draws you in to care for the characters. Once I had started reading, I found it very hard to put this book down.” – Austen Prequels and Sequels

“I really enjoyed reading this book and I have been trying for some time to find something as well developed and sturdy as these characterizations are. I found Alice and Peter to be a funny, witty couple with good senses of humor. My fondest wish is that they live happily ever after… I highly recommend this book to all readers who are looking for something original and fun to read.” – Gaston Sanders, Author of: The Silent Heroes, Sirus Toad and the Grumpy Troll, The Mystery of the Missing Homework, and Cole’s Fairyland Adventure.

“Saucier tells a wonderful love story with a sensual flare that warms the heart. Romance at its best delivered on a silver platter.” – Grammy Ellen’s Book Reviews

“A very smart, comical and fast paced version of Pride & Prejudice.” – Once Upon a Twilight
