Austen News and around the blogosphere

I’m a busy lady in-between writing my first Austenesque novel and working a 9-5 job. I wanted to let you know some news and what is coming up on this blog.

In August I am participating in two blog events.

August 2 I will be participating in Austenesque Extravaganza hosted by Austenesque Reviews. Still debating what my fun post should be. Should I debut a short story or some other fun post? I guess you will have to wait and see what I decide.

I will also be participating in the Georgette Heyer blog event hosted by Stiletto Storytime. August 14th I will be giving a book review of Heyer’s The Convenient Marriage and on August 20th I will be comparing and contrasting the work of Austen and Heyer.

In progress right now is a reading of Why Jane Austen? by Rachel M Brownstein. I will be posting a review soon. Also, Laura (@opheliacat) will be a guest reviewer on the blog. She will also be reviewing Why Jane Austen? I am excited about this as there will be two different perspectives.

I will also be reading a reviewing The Companion of Lady Holmeshire by Debra Brown.

Lots of great things happening. There will also be some giveaways coming up.

Lastly, the launch of Indie Jane is today. My friends Jessica and Nancy have taken a lot of time and Austen love into creating and launching this fabulous community. A community for self-published authors of Austenesque novels. Go check it out. I’m listed at the Reference Desk. Yippie!

Don’t forget to enter to win a copy of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

You ARE a busy lady. I don't know how you do it all.

It should be interesting to read a short story - give us a sampling of your bigger project.:D

I am also hosting a "Sense & Sensibility" Group read at my blog in August, should you be interested.:)
