Une Telle Assemblée
A novel by any other name reads as sweet!
What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day and the 10th anniversary of Pamela Aidan’s first book in the beloved Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy than the publishing of it in French, the “language of love?”
Yes, it’s been ten years since the original self-published edition of An Assembly Such as This hit the world in book form.
Originating as a bi-weekly posting at the popular Republic of Pemberley and The Derbyshire Writers websites in the late 1990s, Pamela’s work then became available through her website, Austenesque, and later, in late 2003, as a self-published work through her own Wytherngate Press, Inc.
The Austen world exploded with enthusiasm! Soon the trilogy was acquired by Simon & Schuster.
Aidan’s trilogy as been set to audio (Audible.com) and translated into Italian and Spanish. The French translation was accomplished just this past year. Book Two, En vain ai-je lutté, arrived in time for Christmas, and Book Three, Un mot de vous, is scheduled for this spring 2014.
Pamela’s working on a new “Austenesque” series that promises more Darcy & Elizabeth but even more Dy Brougham and Georgiana Darcy, as well as a new and darker take on Col. Fitzwilliam.
Her trilogy & novella, as well as the anthology Jane Austen Made Me Do It in which her short story appears, are carried by Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com. Her novella, Young Master Darcy: A Lesson in Honor is also available through Wytherngate Press.
