The Other Mr Darcy now on Kindle!

Just wanted to let those of you who are in possession of this marvelous space-saver that The Other Mr Darcy is available internationally on Kindle. This means that those of you who own Kindle can now download it wherever your are, so I no longer need to talk about US editions and UK editions, which is far more democratic, in my mind.

Of course, Kindle itself isn't exactly a freebee. For those of you who enjoy the pleasure of holding a solid book in your hand, all the Robert Hale books are available internationally at The Book Despository, with free posting to most countries.

How exciting to see your book in a new medium. it will be interesting to see how Kindle take-up compares with book sales. I hope both are very successful.
One question - Us v English editions - are there any differences in spellings and vocabulary?

Thank you for your good wishes, Beth. I'll keep you posted about Kindle, though it will take a while.

Interestingly enough, my American publisher decided to stick with the British spelling of words like behaviour and honour, perhaps to keep the feeling of a Jane Austen novel. Some of the punctuation is different, and then there are things my American editor wanted changed. This is more true of my next novel, The Darcy Cousins, that actually differs in an important scene. But overall I've been pleasantly surprised how little was changed overall.
