The day has finally come for me to make the announcement I've been waiting years for:

PRADA AND PREJUDICE, my debut novel, is now in stores! If you live in the US and Canada, the official release date is June 11, 2009, but it's already sneaking into a few places and by the weekend, it should be just about everywhere.

I can't even believe it's here. If I had not found Fictionpress in 2003-- if I hadn't seen all of YOU posting stories, I never would have tried writing. And this book wouldn't exist. I thank everyone on Fictionpress in my acknowledgements in the back of the book, and I MEAN IT. You guys helped me become the writer I am today, and I owe y'all so much.

If you want to catch up with me online, feel free to PM me here or visit my website at www(DOT)mandyhubbard(DOT)com. I also have all my links in my profile!

Thanks again for reading my work everyone. I love you guys!!

Also, here is a plot summary of PRADA AND PREJUDICE:

Callie falls head over heels—literally…

and wakes up in Austen-Era England !

Fifteen-year-old Callie buys a pair of real Prada pumps to impress the cool crowd on a school trip to London . Goodbye, Callie the clumsy geek-girl, hello popularity! But before she knows what's hit her, Callie wobbles, trips, conks her head… and wakes up in the year 1815!

She stumbles about until she meets the kind-hearted Emily, who takes Callie in, mistaking her for a long-lost friend. Sparks soon fly between Callie and Emily's cousin, Alex, the maddeningly handsome—though totally arrogant—Duke of Harksbury. Too bad he seems to have something sinister up his ruffled sleeve…

From face-planting off velvet piano benches and hiding behind claw-foot couches to streaking through the estate halls wearing nothing but an itchy blanket, Callie's curiosity about Alex creates all kinds of trouble.

But the grandfather clock is ticking on her 19th Century shenanigans. Can Callie save Emily from a dire engagement, win a kiss from Alex, and prove to herself that she's more than just a loud-mouth klutz before her time there is up?
