Launch of "Loving Mr. Darcy"

Greeting visitors of Pride & Prejudice 2005 Blog!Sharon Lathan here, with a formal invitation! I, as you all probably know, am the author of The Darcy Saga - a sequel to P&P that is largely and proudly inspired by the magnificent 2005 movie by Joe Wright. My second novel in the series will be officially released in 3 DAYS!!

Loving Mr. Darcy: Journeys Beyond Pemberleycontinues on where the first novel – Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One – ended. And, in just 4 months the third book in the series will be out. What a year this has been! My head is spinning and I can’t quite wrap my mind around the fact that I am now a multi-published author. Surreal.

I am very excited about this book and where I have taken the Darcys. It is a larger novel than the first, both in page number and content. The Darcys travel all over England, socialize with dozens of friends, deal with trials, and explore historical places, all while growing deeper in their love and anticipating the …

Sherlock Holmes launched a viral campaign website plus a promotional movie and character posters

Here's an update on Kelly Reilly's upcoming film Sherlock Holmeswith Robert Downey Jr., Rachel McAdams, and Jude Law.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any pictures (be it on-set or promo stills) nor a character poster of Kelly in this movie. Only her famous co-stars have stills and promotional character posters from this film. She's mostly just mentioned as one of the co-stars, but you'd think they'd at least have one promo pic or still of her, but no...they didn't. Obviously, she's not one of the leads here, but even in P&P (as Caroline Bingley), she has at least a few promo stills (but then again, pretty much every character in P&P has a promo still). Oh, well...

Anyway, still, I thought I'd post her co-stars' character posters here. But first, here's the latest news...
