The Austen Interviews – An Interview with Colonel Fitzwilliam: the sequel — 19 Comments

  1. Chuckles would send us all to sleep regaling us with tales of his angel.

    Unless you ask him very awkward, squirm-worthy questions, in which case, I’m in.

    I can’t help it, I love Col. Fitzwilliam. Has anyone done a twist on him blabbing by having him know exactly who Lizzy was and told her about Darcy separating Chuckles from his angel for mischief/nefarious purposes? He’s usually written as long suffering and humorous who has to put up not only with Lady Catherine but Darcy as well.

  2. I love the Colonel and I loved the interview. I also love that you are keeping my favorite plot device so busy. I can’t wait for that book to come out Jack. Hint hint. I loved The Three Colonels, and it will be fun to see what they’ve all got up to since then.

  3. Great interviews! I would like you to interview Caroline Bingley. I have a feeling she will have a very biting tone towards Elizabeth and you.

  4. I hope you won’t be offended when I say that Three Colonels ranks within the top three of all the many JAFF novels I’ve read to date. It seems that I’m always interrupting my reading and proofreading to reread the scene of the breakfast following Sir John and Caroline’s wedding or the battle at Waterloo. Now I’m really looking forward to Rosings Park, so please hurry your muse to ‘get ‘er done’!! I’ll be more than happy to be one of your ‘Beta Babes’.
    With reference to your two interviews with Colonel Fitzwilliam … surely you could get him to commit to something! All his gentlemanly dodging should be no match for the guy who ‘created’ him! Nonetheless, the interviews are cute, particularly with Chuckles … what a nincompoop!

  5. Haha! The Colonel certainly adds a little ‘spice’ to the story even if he is only a plot device! Great interview and let’s hear from the peanut gallery! Charles should have his turn but I wonder if Jane, his ‘angel’, will give you a hard time if you are too rough on him! I think she has more backbone and than we are led to believe!

  6. I’ve started and discarded many Austen inspired books because I am a an admitted snob who will not continue if the writing is not up to snuff. (I’m not a writer, hence the cliche I just wrote, but I recognize and appreciate good writing.) However, The Three Colonels captured and held my attention. I enjoyed it very much and thought the character development was spot on. I actually felt like you were writing about people I knew very well but hadn’t heard from in a long time. It was wonderful to read what they’d been up to. The romance was fun, sexy and not icky in any way. Finally, the book had a believable story line and much heart. I’m very much looking forward to Rosings Park.
