Weekend Writing Warriors #17

Coming to your inbox … from BookBub! It’s my first solo BookBub feature. Today’s the DAY!

Excited any? You bet. Readers are not only downloading the book, but they are also buying the other two in the series. Happy-happy-happy dance!

Okay, deep breath. On to the business at hand.

Here is this week’s Weekend Writing Warriors snippet, taken from As Only Mr. Darcy Can, my Pride & Prejudice romantic romp.

Mr. Darcy has sent the son of his London solicitor, an aspiring young barrister, to Meryton to dig up information on Wickham. Mr. Manning has acquired a position in Elizabeth’s uncle’s law office, and Meryton’s doors of social opportunity were opening. His newest report is nicely detailed.

I have lately become acquainted with a family residing at Longbourn House by the name of Bennet.

There followed details about the family; Darcy could not read fast enough.

The eldest daughter is away in London; the second eldest will be joining her shortly, and then journeying on to Hunsford.

Hunsford in Kent? The village adjacent to his aunt’s estate? There would be no reason for Elizabeth to go to Hunsford, save that her cousin Collins lived there—

Darcy heaved out of the chair and began to pace.

Had her parents prevailed upon her to marry that dolt Collins after all? Why else would she be in Hunsford?

Elizabeth, married to that blighter! It was a sickening thought.

  1. I am SO happy for you! A ranked Amazon author in FOUR categories! What an achievement! Amazon Author Rank

    #65 in Books > Romance > Historical


  2. That he does, Ed. The trouble with this format is that I give you only a small slice of the story! The office gives Manning a plausible reason to be in Meryton, and then he can snoop around. 🙂

    Thanks for coming by to read!

    1. Hooray for BookBub! It’s quite the number-watching joyride. I’m excited that you have a promotion coming up, Christina. What excellent news! I will keep an eye out for your featured book.

      My Mercy’s Embrace series is in Kindle Unlimited, and today I began to see the page turns take off. Okay, so I expected subscribers who downloaded the first (free) book to read the other two using KU. But apparently there are kind readers who will read free books using KU so that authors get paid.
