Persuasion Mashup

a super deluxe edition
by Jane Austen and vvb

This new edition of one of Jane Austen's masterpieces, Persuasion, includes entries of Captain Wentworth's personal journal (recently discovered in the trunk of his great great great great great &etc. granddaughter).

Captain Wentworth

a lonely soul...

sailing the vast ocean...

pining for his beloved Anne...

the sirens call...

Who can resist these seductresses who lure nearby sailors
with their enchanting music and voices
to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island?

Read about Captain Wentworth's battle

and how he escapes from the sirens clutches

and eventually returns to his true love

with the help of merfolk.

  1. It looks great Velvet! I love the sea green background you used behind Captain Wentworth, love this picture of him, he looks so handsome and fierce! :-)

  2. Love the idea. And it makes so much sense with the time frame...was it 7 or 8 years he was away at sea? Great concept!

  3. This sounds fantastic, V! I'm hooked already - very creative, (& great pic, too ;D )

  4. You really have a knack of making a mash up sound amazing. The coverblurb of Sense and Sensibiliy and Seamonsters didn't succeed in mking me curious to read it, but your mash ups make me sigh because there's no real book with the whole story.

  5. That's so cool! I would read this in a heartbeat. Too bad it's not a real book. :(

  6. Nice! I would buy it if it was real. :)
