I added a new Novel Passage today! My dear friend Seli celebrated her birthday recently – 30, right Seli? – and asked for a gift from me: passages from Volume 4. Well, how can a true friend deny such a request? So, I have taken four bits randomly from what I have titled The Darcys Amid Friends and Family for this installment of my Novel Passages offered for your reading enjoyment. Now, I am thrilled to be able to fulfill Seli’s wish, but I have to confess that revealing material from my recently written work is kind of tough for me and I shall try to explain why: This novel (as well as the one centering on Georgiana) are written a bit differently and have several serious, dramatic storylines happening. Therefore, picking out passages that do not give too much of the story away is kind of difficult. Plus, it will be a long time – 2010 at best – before these volumes are published, and so much takes place in the first 3 books that I feel folks who are new to the Saga need to receive information on them first. I really do not want to give too much of the Darcys’ future and these events away too early! IF my publisher decides to continue with the Darcy Saga – and I sure pray they will – it will be a tremendous joy for me to be able to furnish my readers with something totally new that has not been available either online or in a self-published, unperfected format. I know it is hard to wait, as it is hard for me to get used to not sharing with you all on a steady basis, but I actually prefer being able to write in this way. So, I guess what I am trying to say is, be patient! I may still, from time to time, offer passages from new material, but will probably continue to generally choose from the books that will soon be available. I hope this makes sense.
But, for now, enjoy what I have placed here! There are a number of hints hidden within that do give some plotline information. Let me know what you think!
And, happy birthday Seli!! *kiss, hug*
