PERCEPTION by Terri Fleming – Author Readings

Renowned publishing companies, like Orion Publishing Group which published PERCEPTION, have an expectation that authors will meet with the public to provide insights on their writings and to promote books. While Terri notes that public speaking can be “a bit scary”, she truly enjoys engaging with readers to discuss her research and lifelong historical interests.


Terri was invited to speak about her book, PERCEPTION, during the 46th annual Rye Arts Festival, which conducted a series of Jane Austen-focused events to mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death. The 2017 festival held in East Sussex offered more than 60 events including classical music, literary talks, drama and film to celebrate arguably one of the country’s greatest authors.


Besides her September 2017 reading at the Rye Arts Festival, Terri conducted an author talk at Waterstones, a UK specialist bookstore chain with over 200 bookshops in the UK and Europe (see photo) along with other author readings. Terri enjoys the give and take of question and answer sessions with her readers. She also notes that reading aloud in her writing groups in Zurich and England was good preparation for her public speaking tours! For more info:

PERCEPTION Audio Book Links (Author: Terri Fleming)

Did I mention that Terri Fleming’s new novel, PERCEPTION, is also available as an audio book?  Read by famous British actress Lucy Scott who portrayed Charlotte Lucas (photo attached to help those of us with aging memories) in the original BBC production of Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth, PERCEPTION is brought to life in Ms. Scott’s terrific ten hour and twenty-three minute recording.

The iTUNES link to download PERCEPTION and read in iBooks on your mac or iOS device is below:

BTW, the iTUNES description really rocked so I stole, uh, uh, borrowed a bit of their text to whet your appetite.  You can read the iTUNES PERCEPTION excerpt below:

One wealthy bachelor. Two Bennet sisters lacking prospects. Can either defy expectations?

Mary Bennet does not dream of marriage. Much to her mother’s horror, Mary is determined not to follow in the footsteps of her elder sisters, Jane (now Mrs. Bingley) and Lizzy (now Mrs. Darcy). Living at home with her remaining sister, Kitty, and her parents, Mary does not care for fashions or flattery. Her hopes are simple – a roof over her head, music at the piano, a book in her hand and the freedom not to marry the first bachelor her mother can snare for her.

But Mrs. Bennet is not accustomed to listening to her daughters…

ME: (HA, now THAT’S an understatement.)

I’ll post more information on the audio link on AUDIBLE later. You can also find more information on Terri’s website,

PERCEPTION by Terri Fleming

Not to brag too much, BUT, Writing Women of Zurich predicted in a September 2016 post that Terri Fleming’s novel, PERCEPTION, would be a big hit.  Now, that was a prescient posting…

The Orion Publishing Group, one of the UK’s leading publishers, published Terri’s novel to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death.  PERCEPTION follows the fortunes of the two lesser known, unmarried Bennet sisters, quiet, bookish Mary and fun-loving Kitty. The story of the sisters, immortalized in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, is set several years after the events of the original novel.

PERCEPTION is available through several outlets including  (where it earned top ratings by the way.…)

ALSO: and several audio recordings as well.

More information can be found on Terri’s website:

Gracious as ever, Terri gives credit to her fellow writing partners in Writing Women of Zurich and notes the groups encouragement led to the completion of her novel.  Way to go, Terri!
