Okay, so when we last left our heroine, a struggling writer 🙂 , she was publishing a new novella and was finishing the first draft of a new, longer novel. The novella, When Mary Met the Colonel, is published and doing well. It’s not selling as well as my novels, but that may be because it’s a Mary/Colonel Fitzwilliam story. Secondary character stories tend not to sell as well as Darcy/Elizabeth stories. However, it has received some lovely reviews on Amazon and from various JAFF bloggers, so I am very please with it!
I also finished the latest draft of my new novel, Darcy vs. Bennet, a Elizabeth and Darcy P&P variation set during the Regency. No, it’s not about a court case (or a lip sync contest, LOL). The premise is that Darcy’s father (who is alive) and Mr. Bennet have a long-standing feud–which leads to many new complications for our heroes. I’m working on an official blurb and will publish it when it’s ready. The novel is now with the editor and the beta readers. When I’ve completed the final edits from them, it will be ready to publish-hopefully in a couple weeks.
And…This has been a very productive, distraction-free weekend for me. So, once I finished the draft of Darcy vs. Bennet, I started on my next novel. This is also a P&P variation focused on D&E–although it will have scenes from other characters’ POVs as well (something I haven’t really done before), so it will be a bit more of an ensemble piece. I’m having fun writing it. In the past two days I’ve written nearly 11,500 words! Unfortunately I’m now heading back to the land of distractions (although I love them dearly), so my pace will slow down.
Stay tuned for more…Same JAFF-time, Same JAFF-channel. 🙂
