I didn’t know about Jane Austen. I mean, wasn’t she some long-dead author of some novel-book-thingies? Yeah, they sounded too girly. I was a tomboy. So I read lots of good books, mostly genre (which is great!) But until around 2005, I did not know what I was missing.
My friends the Allen family introduced me to the five+ hour BBC version of Pride and Prejudice with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, and I was hooked, I tell you–HOOKED! The characters were fresh, real, vibrant. The costumes were fun, the customs funny, and I found myself rather enchanted.
Once I had made it through the five or six VHS tapes, I decided to read the book. WONDERFUL decision, if I do say so myself. Fast forward to several years later. That is when I got the idea of Tweeting as Lady Catherine de Bourgh.
It took me until 2016 to finish the calendar Lady Catherine Says: 365 Tweets of Condescension. I subbed it to maybe three places. Two no responses, one very nice personal rejection. And here I am today 🙂
Sales are going well, reviews are coming in. I’m happy to share this baby with the world.
