Madison Street Publishing is excited to reveal the cover for A Jane Austen Daydream, by Scott D. Southard. The book will be available in April of this year, the same year that Pride and Prejudice celebrates its 200th birthday.
All her heroines find love in the end–but is there love waiting for Jane?
Jane Austen spends her days writing and matchmaking in the small countryside village of Steventon, until a ball at Godmersham Park propels her into a new world where she yearns for a romance of her own. But whether her heart will settle on a young lawyer, a clever Reverend, a wealthy childhood friend, or a mysterious stranger is anyone’s guess.
Written in the style of Jane herself, this novel ponders the question faced by many devoted readers over the years–did she ever find love? Weaving fact with fiction, it re-imagines her life, using her own stories to fill in the gaps left by history and showing that all of us–to a greater or lesser degree–are head over heels for Jane.
I am waiting for it to come out!
That is awesome! Thank you. I hope you like it.
A fabulous Cover!!! Congratulations! Did you design it?
No, that’s out of my capability. LOL
It is not self published. This is my publisher’s doing- Madison Street.
Well, it looks great!
Yeah I’m pretty happy with it and the response is great so far. Cheers!
Love the cover
I’ll be reading it. Sounds great and I love the cover!
Such good news, Scott. 🙂
Thanks! It’s all definitely keeping me busy. But its a good kind of busy.
Hi Scott..your book sounds interesting and the cover is lovely..I stayed in Winchester last year and visited Jane’s house at Chawton…looks just like it! Will your book be available in the UK..just checked at Amazon and it said it was unavailable….
That info on amazon is for an earlier version of the book. This edition will be released in April. I’ll be sure to announce it (probably loudly with dancing) on this site when available for purchase. I hope you like it.
Thanks for writing (I loved visiting Chawron).
Aaahh good…thanks Scott..I’ll look out for it….Chawton is so quaint just the way you imagine an English Village to be., the cover of your book looks like the Church..(although I’m from Liverpool so I’m a townie LOL) I went on a little Jane Austen pilgrimage Winchester/ Chawton last year, Lyme Regis and Bath the previous year..I wish she had written more books!
Sounds like a great trip. I think Sanditon would have been a good book if she completed it. (Well, I at least liked how it began.)
