Lady Vee aka vvb
Greetings! I am the wife of Lord Vee of America. We are visiting our distant relations Fitzwilliam Darcy and his sister Georgiana. We frequently visit London to acquire books for our book selling business in America.

I look forward to meeting you all and hope that we can become fast friends.

FIRST time at the Pemberley Ball?

Do not fret. In essence it is a kind of role-playing interactive blog game. What is this you ask? Basically, I (or actually my Regency persona, Lady Vee) will be posting festivities and comments for you to participate in throughout the event.

As guests, you are encouraged to react and comment to the posts as your persona character. You are welcome to be as creative as you like.


PARTY Crashers:

Are you undecided as to whether or not to come to the party?

Are you unable to commit the time to attend the party "live"?

No need to worry. You are welcome to visit anytime during the party weekend or afterwards to comment on party posts and enter any of my Jane Austen related giveaways!


UNTIL then join me on October 30 for ...

Talk Like Jane Austen Day
created by the Talk Like Jane Austen Day Organization

On the day of, comment on that post with a quote from your favorite Jane Austen tale and you can be eligible to win a Jane Austen related book.
