Pride and Prejudice: Reader’s Choice is a collaborative, original Pride and Prejudice variation written by the Austen Authors. Following the traditional “round robin” format of storytelling, every Wednesday a different Austen Author writes an installment for our clever alternative to Jane Austen’s classic novel, continuing the threads begun by the previous authors. The twist is that with each scene, it is the readers of our blog who decide what path the story will take!
P&P: Readers Choice #1 (Complete) – The Bennet Brother
Elizabeth has an older, very protective brother. Returning to Hertfordshire after a time away, he is not pleased to learn of his favorite sister being insulted by Mr. Darcy. Does Lizzy’s brother know Mr. Darcy, or heard rumors of him? Or perhaps vice versa? And what about this mysterious brother, anyway? The completed novel plus bonus material can be read on The Writers Block and will be published soon by White Soup Press.
P&P: Readers Choice #2 (In Progress) — The Darcy Brothers
Yes, Fitzwilliam and Georgiana Darcy have a brother, too! Is Theophilus Darcy a gentleman or a rogue? Tune in each Wednesday and enjoy as the story is crafted by the following Austen Authors: Abigail Reynolds, Maria Grace, Cassandra Grafton, Susan Mason-Milks, Regina Jeffers, and Monica Fairview.
Remember, because this is Pride and Prejudice: Reader’s Choice, every weekly segment ends with a mini-cliffhanger or crossroad. Three to four different story options will be presented, and visitors will have one day to vote on their favorite. As soon as the poll closes, the next author will begin writing. The Darcy Brothers will continue, week after week, well into the Spring of 2014. The chapters so far can be read on our fiction forum, The Writers Block –> The Darcy Brothers.
