Beetiful designed the book cover to Much Ado About Darcy: A Pride and Prejudice Variation Short Story by Jane Grix. Beetiful designed the book cover to all of the Pride and Prejudice Variation stories: Darcy Unmasked, Darcy At Last, Much Ado About Darcy, Master of Pemberley, Bewitching Mr. Darcy and Darcy’s Winter Wedding.
A rainstorm prevents Fitzwilliam Darcy from giving Elizabeth Bennet a letter after his botched proposal, so they part ways with their misunderstandings bitter and unresolved. They hide their passions behind a war of wit until some well-meaning friends conspire to bring them together.
Much Ado About Darcy is an Austen and Shakespeare Mash-up Variation. Since this Pride and Prejudice Variation Short Story is inspired by the Great Bard, it is a little bawdy, but still rated PG.
I specialize in writing stories for readers who want a quick romantic getaway with Mr. Darcy.
I've been half in love with Mr. Darcy since I was twelve, although I'll admit, the first time I read Pride and Prejudice, I was totally taken in by Wickham. I was stunned when Mr. Darcy proposed (I guess I was reading too quickly to catch all the hints), and even more stunned when Wickham turned out to be a jerk. But by the end of the book I was completely smitten by Darcy. I am still smitten.
The best part about writing Jane Austen Variations is that I can relive those moments of discovery and watch Elizabeth fall in love with Darcy one more time.
All my books and short stories are standalone stories, each with a slightly different Darcy and Elizabeth. Some stories of my stories are shorter (novellas) and some are longer because they are more complex - similar to the difference between a television episode and a movie. I believe both can be satisfying romances.
