I love your books, I have read and re-read all of them more then twice!! I was wonder if there was going to be Darcy saga number 7 or will it just be the prequels? Again I love your books and can't get enough of the Darcys.

Hello Sabrina, Thanks for the wonderful comment. I am very pleased that my stories have brought you happiness. I do indeed plan to continue the Darcy Saga after the prequel novel is done. More on that in due time. :-) Hugs, Sharon

Hi Sharon! I LOVE the extra writings, the interviews with Jane Austen's cousin, and the music in the ballroom segments. Beautiful! Enough to tide me over until your new book comes out soon.
Blessings to you!

Glad you found them, Jenni! I just added that page today :-) Sharon

Hiya Sharon

Your books are amazing and i have enjoyed each one. I am preparing myself to get your new book when it comes out in march. I am sorry that the Austen Authors have broken up and i am heart broken for it but life goes on and will still enjoy all your books. What i would like to no is weather "The Bennett Brother" book will be published and weather "The Darcy Brothers" will be finished and published. I was griped to every post wondering what was going to happen. It is amazing have you can write each installment in a week. Keep going on your wonderful books.

Victoria Goodeve

Thank you, Victoria. The words of encouragement and support are most appreciated. I was planning on spearheading the publication of The Bennet Brother, but that will not happen. The Bennet Brothers, I fear, is not going to be published now that we are no longer a group. My writings are mine and I cannot allow others to publish my work. I will keep writing, so have no fear on that! Sincerely, Sharon Lathan

These books are amazing! I have totally immersed myself into this world. Such lovely stories, fantastic writing, and great detail! I started reading because I love Darcy and Lizzy, but, especially in the later books, I find myself emotionally invested in so many other people.

If there are more books to come I certainly cannot wait :)

Thank you, Megan! I appreciate the lovely words so much. I am writing more indeed, and hope to have a new book out early next year. Try to wait that long! Hugs, Sharon

I am so excited about your book being among the 33 chosen books for World Book Night! I have not met you but I consider all Janeites a family member:) BTW, you have always been in my "fav five" JA authors. Congrats!

Thank you SO much, Beverley! I am still pinching myself, to be honest. I am really glad of my selection also because it made me aware of WBN. It is a marvelous charity! I am excited because in 2015 and beyond I can be involved as a giver too! Hopefully someday we will meet :-) Hugs, Sharon

Sharon,
I just wanted to let you know I have had such a rough few years and reading has always been there to take me away from reality. I read Pride and Prejudice a few years ago and was struck with how real the characters were and wishing i could find love that real. I was always wishing Jane Austen had come up with a sequel and so I started looking into it and found several sequels so I started reading different ones. I would smile at the direction Mr. Darcy and Lizzy took in each one. When I picked up Mr. And Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, I loved that you had based your books on the movie so I had no trouble seeing Matthew Macfadyen as the Mr. Darcy of your book. I couldn't put it down. I read all of your books in a span of about 2 weeks! I am in the process of reading them again:) I love the personalities you give everyone. I LOVE Dr. George Darcy and was so excited about his book. I cannot wait until the next book and hope there are many more! Thank you for helping me take my mind off of my troubles and know I wouldn't want William and Lizzy to be any other way, a love like no other.

Thank you for the lovely comment, Cheri! I am very happy that you enjoyed my novels! Makes my day :-) I am doing my best to give more of the Darcys. Bear with me! Hugs, Sharon

Hi I have read all your books they are amazing I was just wondering when when your next book will come out? I cant wait to read it xx

Zoe, I am working to get something out by the end of this year. Real life has seriously interfered with my writing! But I am trying and will definitely be publishing more of the Darcys in due course. Thanks for the encouragement :-) Sharon
Annie from Texas wrote at August 24, 2013:
I love everything about Jane Austen's books: the character's, their personalities, their hardships, relationships, and etc. I just came across your continuation series on Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. I wasn't aware of the order, nor did the book store have all the Lathan books. However, I bought "Miss Darcy Falls in Love" and I love it; even though I am not quite through with it (chapter eleven). I can't get over Mr. Butler and Ms. Darcy's relationship. I am sure everyone that appreciates Jane Austen will love and appreciate you for continuing what I, for sure, always hoped for... in knowing how Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy's relationship flourished. Not changing anything we already know from the characters and with just the same amount of detail as if you are experiencing their feelings and reactions as if you are standing in the room with them. I Love it, I love it. Please even though I have only just begun to read your works, I hope they continue. whether they are a continuation off of any of Austen's books, just with Mr. and Mrs. Darcy, or you continue with your own series based on that era. I will continue to read because I am hooked.

Thank you so much, Annie! This is a lovely message to wake up to today. I am thrilled you have discovered my series, and that you are enjoying Miss Darcy Falls in Love. I very much delighted in creating Sebastian Butler, and the wonderful future for Georgiana. I hope you visited my "Novels" page to learn of the proper reading order, and that you will enjoy reading of my vision of life for Darcy and Elizabeth. Be sure to let me know! Hugs, Sharon

Dear Sharon
Now that I've read both Miss Darcy Falls in Love & The Passions Of Dr. Darcy - Please tell me how George's marrying Mrs Annesley fits into the history you gave us in "A Darcy Christmas"? Also Please tell me you are going to continue the story as I dearly love your stories. Heidi Longfield

Hello Heidi! Great question. When I wrote A Darcy Christmas, the idea of George and Amanda was a kernel in my mind only. I had conceived of the possibility while writing Miss Darcy Falls in Love, but the particulars (or whether I would ever write George's story) were vague at best. So, in A Darcy Christmas I simply didn't say what George's marital status was! I hinted that their were others present at the final Christmas vignette, including children, with George's possible future in mind. Hope that helps clear it up! Thanks for stopping by, and for the comment. Sharon
Crystal from Oklahoma wrote at June 21, 2013:
Sharon- I also happened to stumble upon Two Shall Become One and happily snapped it up when I saw it. I have loved Lizzy & Darcy when a friend introduced me to the P&P A&E miniseries with Colin Firth & Jennifer Ehle. That telling is my favorite and I bet many of your readers would be very thankful to you to add some Colin Firth pics to your gallery! I too am a nurse and also started devouring all things Austen once I saw that miniseries back in 1997 :) I also really love the Jane Austen mysteries by Stephanie Barron but am especially thankful to you for continuing the Darcy's love story in such a lovely way! Can't wait to read more! Crystal

Thanks, crystal! I appreciate the lovely words. Ah, Colin Firth.... Yes, he is a handsome man, was a terrific Mr. Darcy, and remains a fine actor. Still, for me, it is Matthew Macfadyen who holds the supreme place in my heart as Mr. Darcy. Adding pics of Firth would feel like a betrayal. LOL!

Hugs, Sharon

Hi Sharon,

I saw on the White Soup Press website that you're writing a prequel to the Darcy Saga. Can you give an estimation date for publication? I love your books and I'm planning on re-reading the whole Saga, but if the prequel comes out in the near future, it would be better to wait and start with that. Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend!

Arjanne

Don't wait, Arjanne! I am working on the "prequel" but it will be a while yet before it is done and published. Enjoy the Saga :-) Sharon
Lis from UK wrote at May 12, 2013:
Just finished reading your latest book 'The Passions of Dr Darcy'. I had been waiting for what seemed a long time, ever since Dr Darcy first appeared. It was well worth the wait as it was the best read ever and so hard to put down when the necessities like eating and sleeping get in the way. It's got to be a best seller!

Thank you so much, Lis! I am thrilled that you loved the novel. George's life is something else, that's for sure :-) I appreciate the well wishes and am crossing my fingers on the "best seller" part too. LOL! Hugs, Sharon
Dana wrote at April 24, 2013:
Sharon you're the best. I had read everything I could my hands on regarding sequels but only ones I deemed of the calibur of P&P. Your books are so great because they spin off the movie which is slightly different so it's like a whole different perspective. Are you going to keep writing? I am up to book 4 and am sure I'll be through volume 5 in a week or two. Was hoping to see this series continue since I am so invested! :) Maybe I should read The Trouble with Mr. Darcy before I ask this since you may close out the series but I hope not. Thanks for sharing your talent!

Thank you, Dana! To be honest, I "ended" TTWMD so that it could stay there, especially with my novella in A Darcy Christmas giving a glimpse of how life went on for the Darcys. At the time I was a tad burned out, and wanted to explore secondary characters, as I did with Georgiana and George. Now, however, I feel differently. Guess I needed the break! I am carrying on the family, I assure you. It just may take a while! Be patient :-)
Thanks SO much for the feedback. Sharon

OMG I can't put it down! I love the whole family. My new husband is not so keen as I don't like to have to look up from my book to make tea or do house work. Please keep them coming.

HaHa, Ruth! I can relate completely, both as a reader and a writer. My husband finally gave up - now we have a housekeeper and he does the cooking! Thanks SO much for the lovely words. I am doing my best to "keep them coming." :-) Sharon
