Summer of Stories

At the top of the page, you’ll see a tab for Short Stories. I haven’t posted any recently, until today. I’ve just added ‘Life After Darcy’, in its entirety. (For the first time EVER!) It’s one of my favorites from the short story collection I released last November.

I am giving myself a summer challenge (I’m in the south, so summer starts in about 2 weeks 🙂 ), to post a short story each week until I don’t have any left. I have at least 9 sitting around on my hard drive, and a few more unfinished that I will try to polish up, complete, and post here for your delectation. Each time there is a new story, I’ll add a quick line here on the main blog page so that those of you that follow the blog will receive a notification that there is something new.

They range in length from 2,000 words to 12,000 and have wildly varied topics and time periods.

As always, feel free to comment and share (I LOVE comments!), but if you share it, please do it properly (meaning don’t take my name off it or change it in any way – though I’m sure you would never do such a thing.)

Here’s a quick link for today’s story.

Happy reading!

The Gypsy Blessing is the regency part of yesterday mentioned Foundation of Love.
A Lesson Hard Learned takes Darcy to America after the proposal. As much as I didn’t like him to be so far from Elizabeth, those chapters were very enjoyable too.
In Dearest Friends Elizabeth bumps into Darcy…

From Pemberley to Milton

4.5 stars

Hello everyone,

I read The Houseguest when it was released in 2013 and absolutely loved it, so when the audiobook was released earlier this month, I knew it was the right time to re-acquaint myself with this story.

In this variation Georgiana begs Mr. Darcy to join him at Netherfield, and not wishing to disappoint his sister, he acquiesce. While she is there, she meets and befriends Elizabeth Bennet who is later on invited to spend a few days at Darcy’s London house while Mr. Darcy is out of town. But he returns earlier than expected and finding Elizabeth in Darcy House at his sister’s request, he has no alternative than to accept he will have to spend some time in her presence.

Both when I read and listened to this book I was immediately drawn into it not wishing to get away from the story. I always love books…
