Part 2 ~ Publishing Journey

1. When you first wrote and posted your novels as a series of stories on your website, did you ever think or imagine it would get so many devoted readers/fans/followers not too mention traffic on your old website and get them to be published?

Absolutely not! I was pleased with the chapters/short-stories I had written. I would never have posted something that I did not believe was properly done and entertaining. I assumed that if I desired a happy-ever-after life for Lizzy and Darcy then surely there must be others who wished for the same. Even so, I was amazed by the outpourin…

FILM: "The Duchess""This unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. Before I forget, I must thank Rachel Portman for that music in THE DUCHESS that wasn't the music, but music is fantastic in the film.

An Interview with Sharon Lathan - Part 1

I am honored and thrilled to be given this opportunity to talk about my debut novel! Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy ~ Two Shall Become One is a romantic sequel detailing the initial honeymoon months of Darcy and Lizzy. This first in my Darcy Saga series is already available at Target, on Amazon and Barnes & Noble online, and occasionally even popping up on bookstore shelves despite not officially being released until March 1!

Jeane – blog owner and friend – has been wonderfully supportive of my efforts for years now. I owe her a tremendous debt of gratitude. Of course, our shared love of Joe Wright’s 2005 adaptation ofPride & Prejudice bonded us instantly! Nevertheless, mutual admiration did not immediately mean she would love my sequel, yet thankfully she does. Nor is publicizing my book or freely giving me leave to hijack her website for 3 whole days required, yet she has! I can never fully repay, but will do my best by answering her questions honestly and with humor.

Jeane ca…

Magazine scans: Keira Knightley's 10 Best Ever!

Keira Knightley is featured in a two-page spread of the current InStyle Magazine's (with Sandra Bullock on the cover) March 2009 issue.

On page 124, Keira's 10 Best Ever! looks are featured from 10 to #1 favorite!

Got my copy of this magazine and quickly scanned them here for you all.

Her 10 BestEver!
Keira Knightley

She leads us on a red-carpet ride through looks alternately girlie sweet and glamorously edgy. "Keira wears things that are daring and spontaneous," say Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy. "She lives in the moment." We can't wait to see where she takes us next.

[click scans to enlarge!]

Though she looked gorgeous in all of them ^, I personally loved Keira's look in the following: #10, 9, 7, 4, 2, and #1 (of course). What about you, what's your favorite Keira Knightley look from pics of her (that InStyle mag. provided above) 10 Best Ever! look? Post your thoughts and opinions in the comments section here.
