What Makes Darcy Tick?

I’m guest blogging today on Darcyholic Diversions talking about what makes Darcy tick. He’s a complex and fascinating man who’s not so easy to get to know. So who is Fitzwilliam Darcy underneath all those intense looks and frowns?

“…Darcy is a gentleman in the best sense of the word. As such, he is a loving brother, a loyal friend, and concerned landlord. He’s also honest…In terms of his personality, he is an introvert. He sees things logically and literally and is a bit of a control freak.” – from blog post on Darcyholic Diversions

I’ve also included a scene from the last chapter of Mr. Darcy’s Proposal that shows how after getting to know Elizabeth better, Darcy learns to tease her back in his own unique way.

In case you’re not familiar with Darcyholic Diversions, it’s a blog dedicated to all things Darcy – for those who are addicted and don’t want a cure! Barbara Tiller Cole started the blog just this winter and it’s been a great success. You might also want to check out the Facebook page for Darcyholic Diversions: All Things Austen Posting Board.

    Hello, I was introduced to your group at the Northwest Book Fest and wanted to expend an invitation to participate in the annual Anacortes Writers’ Forum to be held February 23, 2013. This will be the 6th annual Writers’ Forum and is sponsored by the American Association of University Women, the Anacortes Public Library and Watermark Book Company. The forum will be held at the Anacortes Public Library meeting room. In the past we have had between 30 and 70 attendees.

    I am a romance reader and feel that romance is too often viewed in a negative way. This year’s forum will be romance authors from several genres. And however negative anyone can be about the romance genre, no one has anything bad to say about Jane Austen and she is very romantic. I thought a speaker from your group would be a wonderful addition to the forum. There will be 4 speakers in all, each to have 20 minutes to talk about their writing experience(s) and to read a selection. At the end there will be time for q&a and the Watermark Book Company will have books on hand to sell.

    I am hoping an author from your group would be able to participate. Last year our authors were young adult and children so this year the focus is on adult authors. Please let me know if this is possible or not and I look forward to hearing from you,
