Vignette: Outtake, Elizabeth Bennet’s Diary #3 Seeing Darcy in London

Thanks so much for hosting me, Maria Grazia! The Secrets of Pemberley is told entirely from Mr. Darcy’s perspective. In the book, Elizabeth’s diary becomes important, and as a long-time fan of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, I decided to do video entries for each of diary entry I’ll be sharing on the blog tour. I hope you enjoy as we get a bit of insight on what Elizabeth Bennet felt when seeing Darcy again for the first time after his proposal and reading his very different letter.

About the Book

To the world, Fitzwilliam Darcy has it all. He’s the young master to one of the kingdom’s oldest and wealthiest Norman families. Through his mother, he is related to a powerful line of earls. Beneath the perfect façade lies the truth: he’s the product of his mother’s affair and the heir George Darcy never wanted.
At twenty-eight, Darcy has fought hard to put to rest the pains of the past and earn his place in Society. But can he resist the allure of ending his loneliness with the unsuitable woman who has tugged at his heartstrings? Will he tell her his secret and if he does, will she keep it? Or will someone else from the past destroy everything Darcy has worked for?

Prepare for another page-gripping read from Rose Fairbanks as she unfolds a Darcy and Elizabeth story unlike you have ever read before. For the first time ever, Ms. Fairbanks is offering a new novel release in Kindle Unlimited. Pre-order today!

About the Author:

Born in the wrong era, Rose Fairbanks has read nineteenth-century novels since childhood. Although she studied history, her transcript also contains every course in which she could discuss Jane Austen. Never having given up all-nighters for reading, Rose discovered her love for Historical Romance after reading Christi Caldwell’s Heart of a Duke Series.

After a financial downturn and her husband’s unemployment had threatened her ability to stay at home with their special needs child, Rose began writing the kinds of stories she had loved to read for so many years. Now, a best-selling author of Jane Austen-inspired stories, she also writes Regency Romance, Historical Fiction, Paranormal Romance, and Historical Fantasy.

Having completed a BA in history in 2008, she plans to finish her master’s studies someday. When not reading or writing, Rose runs after her two young children, ignores housework, and profusely thanks her husband for doing all the dishes and laundry. She is a member of the Jane Austen Society of North America and Romance Writers of America.

Sounds really interesting. I wonder who his biological father is and whether his identity is important to the story.

Can't wait to read it. Wondering if there is a Georgiana in this story.

Rose Fairbanks said...

Thanks for having me, Maria Grazia! Darcybennett--the identity of Darcy's father is important to him psychologically. Colleen--there is a Georgiana! She is also not the child of George Darcy.

You are always very welcome,Rose! And, of course, it's always a great pleasure to have you. ☺

Your acting skills are good, Rose. I do feel that you have successfully conveyed Elizabeth's feelings. Do you prepare the diary beforehand and practise acting it out or just record it impromptu?

This sounds wonderful, I love your books, Rose. Thanks for the giveaway!

Rose Fairbanks said...

Thanks, Luthien and Priscilla. Best of luck in the giveaway!

Luthien, for my first video I did write up a transcript first and read it off but I found that I didn't look at the camera enough or put enough emotion into it. For the next videos I decided to do it off the cuff. I did have a rough plan on what to say since I know what's happening in the book and what I imagined Elizabeth felt. Honestly, it was difficult to appear as unsure and uncertain as I think Elizabeth felt since I knew how the story went!
