Today is Jane Austen’s birthday. I won’t presume to argue that the best way to celebrate her big day is by buying my book, A Jane Austen Daydream; I don’t roll that way.
Jane inspired me to write my latest novel; wait, she just didn’t inspire it, she is also IN it. She is a writing hero, and I wanted to give her a better tale than the one life had chosen for her. Yes, it pains me that she didn’t have time to give us more great works.
It’s a good day to brush off your copy of your favorite Ms. Austen book and enjoy… Happy Birthday Jane Austen.
Happy Jane Austen’s birthday to you too!
If you get a chance, please visit my blog and read the short story “The Perfect Ceremony” (its the fourth one down on the right-hand margin). It was based on Shakespeare’s sonnet 23, but also VERY inspired by Jane Austin’s writings. I hope you like it.
And if you don’t, let me know. I can take it.
Sure. I’ll check it out. I can’t say when though. I am crazy busy with the writing and I have two little kids. I can’t remember the last time I read for entertainment.
