NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Mrs Darcy, Episode Nineteen

I think last time I saw this scene, there were werewolves involved. Anyway, Wickham has now arrived at Rosings, to be followed very soon (in the very next episode, in fact) by Mrs Darcy herself. The tension is mounting! Well, I can hardly contain myself – can you?

Mrs Darcy’s YouTuberance continues to have a strange and rather wonderful life of its own, nearing 900 views at the time of writing. The lovely Becca from the Jane Austen Centre has pronounced it “fantastic and very funny”, and JK Evanczuk in the really quite serious Lit Drift has said that it’s “one of the weirdest book trailers I’ve ever seen”. My only problem is that whenever I go to YouTube to link to it, I have to make sure that I hit the pause button damn quick so that I don’t have to hear myself attempting that ridiculous falsetto.

  1. Lest my words be misinterpreted, “one of the weirdest book trailers I’ve ever seen” is a GOOD thing.

    Also re: “My only problem is that whenever I go to YouTube to link to it, I have to make sure that I hit the pause button damn quick so that I don’t have to hear myself attempting that ridiculous falsetto.” Haha!

    Thanks for dropping in, JK. Don’t worry – I took it as a compliment! I hope you don’t mind, but I actually used your quote today in a pitch to an editor :) Really appreciate the exposure you gave to Mrs D’s YouTuberance. My only problem now is that I’m going to have to follow it up with something even stranger …

    Oh, I don’t know…I rather like the falsetto and definitely like the French. Stick with it, I say. (Or maybe street-smart talk, as with the 2 WW2 airmen, in Armstrong & Miller?) Innit?

    Ha! Love Armstrong & Miller. Not sure I could pull that off, though. Might have to stick with the French. Although I do have some ideas for an additional twist …
