UPDATE: John and I continue to go back and forth to doctors appointments for me and my Mom. John did some volunteer yard clean-up and ended up with poison oak from nose to toes. Poor man!
I’ve not been writing and was suffering from not getting anything done. Then, I woke last Saturday morning to a story idea that I couldn’t let go. Eight days and 20,000 words later my latest Christie Capps tale is born. It’s called “Elizabeth”. Would you like a peek at the blurb and the cover? Here it is:
He could have anything he wanted…except her.
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy finds himself in the unusual position of chasing a woman rather than being chased.
Miss Elizabeth Bennet is exasperated as Mr. Darcy, the rudest man of her acquaintance, is being nice—to her! How can she continue to despise a man who apologizes so well?
Based on Jane Austen’s classic novel, Pride & Prejudice, Mr. Darcy’s arrogance and pride are equally matched by Miss Elizabeth’s prejudice. In this fast-paced novella set in Regency England, can they both overcome strongly entrenched personalities to discover peace and happiness? Of course, they can. This is Mr. Darcy and his Elizabeth, he hopes.
Elizabeth is appropriate for all readers. This story can be read in about an hour and is around 100 pages.
It goes to the formatters first thing in the morning. I hope to have it available in eBook this week. Print will take a few weeks longer and audio will be a while.
What about “Letter of the Law”? I start sprinting with Nicole Clarkston and an author from Germany, Marion Kummerow, first thing in the morning. I’m so excited. The muse is being kind—finally! So hold onto your hats, you should have a chapter soon.
As always, I thank you for your patience and willingness to understand life’s interferences.
