Launch of Conversations with Mr. Darcy by Mary Simonsen — 36 Comments

  1. I too was disturbed with all the negativity in the election and news, but kept on reading and listening to it with grief in my heart and worries in my head. To escape, I took long walks and read fan fiction about our beloved and often misunderstanding favorite couple, Darcy and Elizabeth. Thanks to all of the JAFF authors who are so creative and providing us with delightful escapes into another time and place.

  2. Last night I was browsing the new suggestions on Kindle and your story was one of them. It was midnight and I promised myself to investigate this new title by a favorite author. Lo and behold I came here and see just what I was looking for! Terrific! I will purchase your new story tonight.

  3. Congratulations, Mary!

    I once worked on a book project (in the pre-computer era) in which myself, a Harvard PhD, and three other grad students all read over the proofs of a book I co-edited with the Harvard PhD (also our department chair). The manuscript was a collection of essays that our typist had to retype (on a an electric typewriter!) into the proper book format, and she proofread it twice, also. And several typos *still* got past us.

    So typos happen. 😉

    I’m going to go purchase a copy right now, and I am fairly conscientious about writing reviews for Goodreads and copying them to Amazon and eventually to my blog.

    Again, congratulations on a job well done!

    Susanne 🙂

    • Typos–the bane of my existence! When I was a legal secretary, I once typed a letter that was supposed to have the word “exotic” but typed “erotic.” The lawyer found it and still sent out the letter. I was embarrassed, but everyone got a good laugh out of it. Thanks, as always, for your support and reviews. It makes a world of difference, esp. as this is most likely my last D&E.

  4. I look forward to reading this one I love your work the only thing I would like is novels rather than novellas always regret the end of a good book. But I would not miss one of yours if I can.

    • Thanks, Terri. I understand about the novellas, but, of late, I really enjoy narrowing the focus on D&E. As I’ve gotten older, I find that I have a shorter attention span. I flit and fly from one thing to the next. But I appreciate your support.

  5. Please try not to make this your last D&E publication! I, too, am on Medicare and as I have only recently become acquainted with JAFF am just getting started! I really have enjoyed the books I’ve read and wish I could afford to buy more than one per day! You are on my 2017 list.

    • Thanks, Katherine. There is so much D&E out there that you could read a book a day for a couple of years! I have several books for .99. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi Katherine check out some other authors (within this site) as many books available for free Amazon also have books very cheap and unlimited option as well sometimes it can be hit and miss with quality they are not all to Mary’s high standard. Enjoy I find JAFF like having a never ending book.

  6. Thank you for sharing, Mary! I totally relate about seeking solace in P&P. I don’t really write stories so I just rely on people like you, and of course Jane, for comfort! 🙂 I shall put this story on my reading list!
