I met Summer Hanford in an online novel writing class at AllWriters’ Workplace & Workshop in 2010. Every week, all the students emailed each other pages of their current novels and critiqued them in a live, online discussion. Summer and I stopped taking classes together sometime in 2013, but continued to keep in touch and seek each other’s opinions.
About a year later, I tried writing Jane Austen fan fiction. The short story, Pemberley Weddings, sold more than expected, so I wrote four more. Summer was reading my work and expressed an interest in getting into that kind of writing. I realized that Summer had skills that I lacked, so I asked her to try writing with me. It turned out better than I expected.
We have physically met only once. We talk on the phone infrequently. Most of our work is done by email and we email often.
I don’t know what makes a good co-author, but I like Summer’s writing. Her thrice born fantasy series has many interesting and likable characters. There were other writers I met at Allwriters who also wrote well, but I doubt I could work with them. Mainly, I didn’t like their characters, hence the draw of Elizabeth, Jane, Darcy and Bingley. I like to be able to see the viewpoint of the characters I write about, and I want to love my main characters. Yes, sometimes I can even relate to Mr. Wickham, and in the next story we are working on, the conclusion of our smoke and fire books, Mr. Darcy actually goes to Mr. Wickham for help. It is very near the beginning, so readers can find out about it in the sample.
We hope our readers are enjoying our partnership as much as we are.
Renata McMann and Summer Hanford would like to introduce their new editor, Joanne Girard. It’s our belief that she will raise our work to a higher standard than ever. Mrs. Girard’s attention to detail and dedication to getting things right is exactly what our collaboration needs to keep writing the stories we love.
Mrs. Girard will be editing upcoming works and, over time, she will also make her way through our existing offerings. They will be re-released better than ever.
We’re very pleased Mrs. Girard has joined us and know she’ll be invaluable moving forward as we strive to create the best Fan Fiction we can. We appreciate all of our readers and hope this addition to our collaboration will increase their enjoyment of our work.
Look for our upcoming new releases, and for the addition of Joanne Girard as editor, identifying newly improved favorites.
This is a list of Renata McMann Pride and Prejudice variations, from most current to oldest. This list is for informational purposes only and is not meant as a guide to what order these variations should be read in. As they are Pride and Prejudice variations, they are all distinct and independent stories which stand alone. Therefore, there’s no right order to read them in.
The exception to this is the short story collection, which contains all five of the variations written by Renata alone, including: Heiress of Longbourn, Three Daughters Married, The Inconsistency of Caroline Bingley, Anne de Bourgh Manages and Pemberley Weddings. Reading both the short story collection and the five individual short stories would be redundant.
