If you receive the Meryton Press newsletter, you have already read about the novella series. If you do not get the newsletter or haven’t seen it yet, let me tell you a little about the series, starting with the background.
Meryton Press will be releasing several novellas over the next few months. In 2019 we first decided we wanted to do an anthology. Even though we were still in the planning stage, some of the authors began to write their stories. Then in early 2020, before the pandemic, we felt that novellas would be better for the authors and readers alike. The authors with stories started expanding them, and other authors began writing theirs.
All novellas are loosely based on the theme “Skirmish & Scandal,” and each will be a stand-alone story. They will have similar covers to distinguish them as part of the “Skirmish & Scandal” Series.
There are two novellas ready to publish and six in the works.
Schemes of Felicity by Suzan Lauder will be released on August 10th.
The Longbourn Quarantine by Don Jacobson will be released on August 24th.
A Consuming Love by Kelly Miller
Duel-Purpose Act by J. Marie Croft
Spies of Our Acquaintance by Brigid Huey
Reckless, Headstrong Girl by Grace Gibson
Title Coming Soon by Audrey Ryan
Skirmish & Scandal by C. P. Odom (who graciously allowed the use of his title for the theme of the novella series.
We may eventually have three or four more, but this is the definitive count for now. Releases will be announced on the Meryton Press blog and the Meryton Press Facebook page.
