Mr. Bennet's Illness : A Short Farce


A 13,000 word comic pride and prejudice variation, with love, absurdity, and a paragraph long quotation from Fordyce's Sermons used to amuse After a serious illness Mr. Bennet dedicated his life to what truly mattered to him. Reading all the books.His problem: Noise, noise, noise.He needed to get rid his noisy, crackling, cackling brood. That fabulously quiet Darcy fellow who loaned him books and Lizzy got along well together, but what about the rest? And could he convince Mrs. Bennet to also run off with some wealthy young gentleman?Elizabeth worried about how Papa had changed since his illness.But surely he would never force Lydia to marry Mr. Collins, just so he wouldn't need to listen to her chatter and clatter any more? And if Papa did try to force her sister to marry the toad of Hunsford, could Elizabeth trust Mr. Darcy to help her save Lydia?Note: I suspect some readers will find the price high for a 13k word story. I put the price at the lowest I can while still getting 70% royalties. If I set the price any lower, my royalty rate becomes 35%, and I just don't want Jeff Bezos get more of your money than I do: PIn the US and UK this book will go on a Kindle countdown deal for .99 every three months or so, Sign up for my email list if you want to know when my books go on sale. http: // you are looking at this novella right after it is published, I am going to immediately once it goes live schedule a sale for the first allowable date, which should start a day or two after publication -- so it will be cheaper on day two or three than day one.
