Reviews of the Serialisation
Amazingly, the first mention of the serialisation appeared the day after the first episode went out, on vvb32's blog. Gosh, that was easy, I thought, and sat back waiting for the rest of the world to find out.
However, no one else seemed to notice it until January 2010, when El Salón de Té de Jane picked it up. I have no idea what they're saying here, but I'm not entirely sure that it's complimentary (I think I did manage to win them round eventually, though). Meanwhile, I nudged a few other sites that might be interested, and I got some fairly non-committal mentions from AustenBlog and Jane Austen Today respectively.
However, things picked up in February, with a brief but complimentary review from ERGOFiction. This was followed very quickly by AustenBlog again, who had been won over by the first YouTuberance. Very soon after this, there was also a nice mention in Lit Drift, and around this time the UK Steampunk Network also chipped in with their endorsement.
In March, Mrs Darcy was featured in Nicola Morgan's excellent Help I Need a Publisher! blog.
April saw the release of the second YouTuberance, which garnered further comment in both AustenBlog and Jane Austen Today, as well as a lovely mini-review from Jane Obsessed with Jane.
Then things went a bit quiet until out of the blue in September, the venerable University of Chicago saw fit to promote Mrs Darcy to its adult education students at the Graham School of General Studies. If that's not a seal of approval, I really don't know what is. And in October, Kelly Yanke Deltener, the Jane Austen sequel correspondent of Examiner.com, gave Mrs Darcy her first full review, giving her a generous 4 out of 5 stars (only dropping that star because it was unfinished at the time).
