Preparing for the Release of “Where There’s a FitzWILLiam Darcy, There’s a Way”

Preparing for the Release of “Where There’s a FitzWILLiam Darcy, There’s a Way”

I know I have been excessively quiet regarding my upcoming JAFF release. In truth, I had hoped to have it ready by mid-August, but now it is looking closer to mid-September for its release, for I am doing a rewrite of the ending.

Petty Revenge on Some of the Villains of Pride and Prejudice, Part 2 Lady Catherine

Petty Revenge on Some of the Villains of Pride and Prejudice, Part 2 Lady Catherine

It is very human for people to wish bad things will happen to bad people, whether the bad people are real or fictional. Jane Austen was surprisingly kind to her unpleasant characters. I am not as nice as she was, but I am not going to give horrible endings to them. I’m just going to… more goodness …

Top Ten Goofs in Emma (1997)

Top Ten Goofs in Emma (1997)

Are you thinking that the title of this post is a goof? I can practically hear the objections winging their way across the cosmos.

Another year, another race, another reader

I recently went on a vacation with my sister. We’ve never done anything like this before, and I wish we had. It was great to spend that time with her and do things together.

Petty Revenge on Some of the Villains of Pride and Prejudice, Part 1 Caroline Bingley

Petty Revenge on Some of the Villains of Pride and Prejudice, Part 1 Caroline Bingley

For example, JAFF writers often give bad endings to Wickham. Rather than show a terrible ending for the villains,… more goodness …
