Hi friends! I am so happy to take part in sharing this special announcement with you today! It is a brilliant new idea, and with the amazing success ofThe Darcy Monologues – which blew me away with its wonderful creativity and inspiring tales – I know this one is another winner! And I can’t wait to learn more about it!! Thank you, Christina, for fulfilling my own personal wishes and putting together another anthology! 😀
Oops, I’m at it again.
I’m Christina Boyd, the editor of The Darcy Monologues, and I am thrilled to finally announce that my next anthology project, Dangerous to Know: Jane Austen’s Rakes and Gentlemen Rogues, is well underway. My team and I thank you for helping us launch the news to the Jane Austen community.
Jane Austen’s masterpieces are littered with any number of unsuitable gentlemen—Willoughby, Wickham, Churchill, Crawford, Tilney, Elliot—adding color and depth to her plots but often barely sketched out to the reader. Have you never wondered about the back story of her rakes and gentlemen rogues? Surely, there’s more than one side to their stories.
