Pride and Prejudice Villains Revisited Redeemed Reimagined
"Pride & Prejudice Villains Revisited - Redeemed - Reimagined: A Collection of Six Short Stories" is a collection of six "Pride and Prejudice" variations, all attempting to show how some of Jane Austen's most vilified characters could actually be good at heart, or at least redeemed. This collection includes five selections which have been previously released alone in eBook format only and one short bonus story - "Mr. Collins' Deception" - Jane Austen tells us that Mr. Collins was a man of 'great humility of manner, ' but suppose that isn't true. What if Mr. Collins is a very different person than he appears to be? His false portrayal of himself is all part of "Mr. Collins' Deception." Originally released on May 3rd, 2015 and is approximately 16,000 words - "Caroline and the Footman" - This variation explores the possibility that Caroline Bingley's behavior is motivated by goals other than a desire to attract Darcy. In an effort to shatter the Caroline Bingley villain motif, this Caroline is not stupid, greedy or villainous, but rather someone with her own life and dreams. Originally released on January 13th, 2015 and is approximately 10,000 words - "Lady Catherine Regrets" - Lady Catherine de Bourgh cannot understand what her nephew, Mr. Darcy, sees in the low born, impertinent Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and with Darcy married, what is to become of her daughter Anne? Lady Catherine's quest to find her daughter a husband might just lead to a better life not only for Anne, but for herself. Originally released on December 12th, 2015 and is approximately 9,000 words - "Mrs. Bennet's Triumph" - When Mr. Bennet is killed in an accident, Mr. and Mrs. Collins immediately take possession of Longbourn. While tragic, the death of her husband doesn't absolve Mrs. Bennet of the now even more pressing responsibility to marry off five daughters. Join her in her struggle and, ultimately, her triumph. Originally released on August 5th, 2014 as a bonus short story at the end of "The Second Mrs. Darcy," and available on www.renatamcmann.com, this short story is approximately 3,800 words - "Mary Younge" - In "Pride and Prejudice" it is difficult to imagine a woman who would both meet Mr. Darcy's requirements to take charge of Georgiana, and who would trust Mr. Wickham. Though this Mrs. Younge conceals some of her past from Mr. Darcy, she neither conspires with Wickham nor is fooled by him. Originally released on August 27th, 2015 and is approximately 40,000 words - "Wickham's Journal" - Yes, George Wickham is a reprehensible young man, but will he stay that way? "Pride and Prejudice" leaves him in very different circumstances than when he is first introduced. With his whole life before him, will Mr. Wickham ever become an honorable man? Wickham's Journal can only be found in "Villains Redeemed" and is quite short, approximately 3,900 words.

Persuasion (1817) is the final novel written by English author Jane Austen--and the first to be attributed to her name. Persuasion was published posthumously to widespread critical acclaim, and has since been recognized as an understated and mature work of fiction from one of history's finest writers. Like most of Austen's novels, Persuasion involves an intricate network of characters and relationships, illustrating its author's peerless attention to the inner workings of aristocratic society and the nuances of human communication. Persuaded by her wealthy family to break off her engagement to the young Frederick Wentworth, Anne Elliot finds herself unmarried nearly eight years later. By now, with the Elliot family all but ruined by the spendthrift Sir Walter and his enabling daughter Elizabeth, the prospect of marriage is not only a distant hope for Anne, but a bitter reminder of what could have been. When chance reunites her with Frederick, now the esteemed Captain Wentworth for his accomplishments in the Napoleonic Wars, she will have to navigate feelings both old and new with the reversal brought on by their opposing fortunes. As the two are drawn closer together, they will have to decide if it is possible to rekindle a love that has lain dormant much longer than their engagement was allowed to last. Jane Austen's Persuasion is a perceptive and entertaining novel that raises timeless questions regarding the inequity of social life, the disparate opportunities available to men and woman, and the indomitable feelings which work to draw them together--and threaten to drive them apart. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Jane Austen's Persuasion is a classic of English literature reimagined for modern readers.
A timeless classic reimagined . . . for terrible people. Following the death of their father, sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are sent to toil at a rundown logging camp deep in Kentucky. Faced with the prospect of being married off to Colonel Brandon, the camp's elderly owner, Marianne comes up with the less-than-cunning plan of passing off the murderous man-ape that haunts the nearby forest as her fiancé. Both sense and sensibility take a back seat as Willoughby, as the beast is dubbed, tears a swath of destruction through Barton Woods, leaving misery and chaos behind for those either too dull-witted to stop his rampage or far too polite to say anything about it. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph in the face of such carnage to find true love? Or will their crushed bodies be left forgotten in a clearing for the badgers to find? Find out as Shingles paints a less than masterful portrait of Regency era etiquette set amidst a backdrop of deep woods terror. ---------- Shingles, by the minds behind Authors & Dragons, is the horror comedy series that takes the things you love most and puts a cigarette out on it.
