Three weeks until the release of A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM! A Book Giveaway!

A Jane Austen DaydreamIn three weeks my latest novel, A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM, will be released by Madison Street Publishing. I can not wait to share this new book with you.

Over the next few weeks I hope to be able to discuss more about the work on this site and share many different things going on around the release from editorials on other sites to reviews to interviews. If I can promise my readers one thing around this moving and humourous novel it is that it is surprising with a few neat (and possibly new) literary tricks. I look forward to hearing what readers think of it!

To anticipate this release my publisher is having a book giveaway for the novel on GoodReads. Two copies will be given to two lucky entries. To enter, simply visit this page here (http://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/48730-a-jane-austen-daydream) and click on the “Enter to Win” button.

A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM

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.

Again, you can enter the competition by just visiting this page. The competition runs through April 29.

Let the countdown begin!

  1. Without taking too much of your time, (I think you were asked this in one of your interviews, so pardon the repetition) but what made you want to approach this? I appreciate your love of Jane’s work, but this must have been a bugger to research, right?
    Thanks

    • I get those questions a lot. LOL. I won’t get into it too much here in comments, but it started as one of those ideas that made laugh at first (I won’t say why but it will be obvious in the reading what I mean). It took me a while before I took it serious, and then once I did it became something like a dream project. It took a lot of courage to actually write it for me.

      My research was more around absorbing her work. Her fiction was more a direction for how to write the book than her real life.

      • Thanks for letting me know; you are the first person that had trouble…but my whole blog situation has been surreal. I am waiting for creatures to start popping through the monitor. If you are willing, maybe if you tried just typing in the address…Triciaspages.com
        I got through that way vs through Google-either way, thanks for trying!
