NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Mrs Darcy, Episode Eight

… in which we hear more of Charlotte Collins’ predicament, is now up. Following on from a few helpful mentions in the on-line Jane Austen community (and, wow, there are a lot of Jane Austen-related sites out there – I had no idea), the marketing effort  has moved on to the wonderful world of steampunk. Last Sunday, Mrs Darcy got this nice mention in the Gatehouse Bulletin (not sure about the “Victorian” bit, but I’ll certainly accept “plain weird”).

And here’s a piece which appears today in Flash Fiction Chronicles – quite an impressive example of shoe-horning, don’t you think? Anyway, the long and the short of it is that the audience is building well, and is only just lagging behind the figure for this blog itself. I just hope that the new readers will stick around. I’d hate to think they didn’t like what they saw.

  1. Fresh from an afternoon on authonomy – am I allowed to say you have 2 ‘seemed”s in first sentence? Can dinner plates be wide (round, oval?)
    Otherwise I am of course totally immersed in the drama and trying desperately NOT to imagine Mr. Collins …

    Oops! You are most certainly allowed to say that. I might even go and fix it. Definitely best not to think too much about Mr Collins, though.

    Right, sorted. One “seemed” duly removed. I’ve kept the dinner plates, mind. I still quite like them. Many thanks, AliB!
