If Jane Austen and Bram Stoker got together in the linen cupboard…


They’d apologise profusely, dust themselves off, and be too embarrassed to ever acknowledge one another again in polite company. BUT…if, instead, they decided to write the Great Gothic Novel together…

This wouldn’t be it. But it might be SLIGHTLY similar. Lady Charlotte & the Dark Side is due to be released in five days, come rain or hail of vampyre bats. Don’t like vampyre novels? Ah, but this is different – strong feminist themes, almost zero gore, and…the genetic input of famed Victorian trash novelist, Lord Bulwer-Lytton, he of ‘It was a dark and stormy night…’ fame. He was my great grandfather (if I remember rightly) and is probably rolling in his grave right now.

Here’s an excerpt, if you’re curious. If you’d like a free review copy, let me know in the comments section:)


  1. This sounds fabulous! I’ve just read the excerpt and I know I’m going to like this a lot. I now have on my Kindle and look forward to reading… and reviewing too. 🙂
