As you can see from my copy of Elizabeth’s Gaskell’s North & South, I am a fan of Richard Armitage. Why? He’s an excellent actor, he’s tall and handsome, and he has one of the best male reading voices I’ve ever heard.
As my newsletter subscribers know, I contacted him about narrating my next release, Friends and Enemies. Since the story is from Darcy’s point-of-view, I wanted a male narrator/producer.
Here is an update.
I received an email from his representatives on April 3rd. In my reply, I told them I would have the finished first draft to them on Monday, April 17th.
This is why I’ve been practically invisible on social media. I’m typing like a crazed person trying to get this story done. On Monday of this week, I went back to chapter one and did a word-by-word clean-up. Now, I’m pressing on to the end. I have approximately 8,000 words to go—I hope.
Click below for a video interview which should give you a hint why I’m desperately hoping he agrees to my project.
I will keep you apprised of the process. Of course, if he agrees, you will undoubtedly hear my screams right before I faint.
Would you like to hear Mr. Armitage read Fitzwilliam Darcy? Boy, I would.
