Dear readers, it saddens me to announce that Mrs Darcy won't post new stories in the future. She will post new installments of older w.i.p's and the site will remain online, but keeping the site fresh and alive is just not possible any longer. Particularly work, but different interests as well made her come to this decision.

She thanks all the authors, visitors and contributors from the bottom of her heart for all the fun these passed seven years and hopes to keep on meeting you on the various social media.

Mrs Darcy recommends:

"How did Jane Austen get to be such a hot commodity? Harman delves into this question by examining Austen's literary reputation and appeal over the years. Although Austen has been presented (mostly by her family members) as wanting little to do with the fate of her books beyond her own inner circle, she did in fact take a keen interest in their publication and reception. Upon her death in 1817, her work sank into obscurity; even the dedication copy of Emma presented to the Prince Regent while she was alive was relegated to the royal servants' library. All that changed when Memoir of Jane Austen, written by her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh, was published in 1869. Although his portaryal of dear Aunt Jane was misleading, the biography marked the beginning of a steady upward climb in scholarly and popular appreciation, culminating in the avid fandom of today. Engagingly written and full of fascinating bits of information as well as valuable insights, this is a must for any serious Austen reader." Mary Ellen Quinn
