Right now I am suffering from a literary internet addiction. With the release of my new book A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM I can’t stop looking at amazon.com and GoodReads.com. I want to know what people think of my new work. I know the book has only been out for a few days, but I can’t help myself. I want everyone to read this book! And I want everyone to like it. It’s kind of like the feeling of being dropped off at camp for the summer and wondering if you will have any friends. Will you be my book’s friend? Please? I’m sure we have much in common.
Seriously though, if you would like to know more about my surprising, touching, and witty new book there are some great options out there for you.
- Before the release of the novel, I gave an interview with the Jane Austen Centre in Bath. You can read that interview here.
- Recently, author and book blogger Deborah Kalb interviewed me about the book on her site. You can check it out here.
- I have written three different introductions to the book on this site over the last few weeks. The first dealt with having the courage to write the book (Braving Austen), the second was about finding the character of Jane (Visiting Austen), and the third was about how I wrote the book as a surprise for my wife (Austen in Stealth).
- Also, this week I shared an excerpt from it. It is from Volume II of the book and I think it introduces the character of Jane and the style of the book in a very fun way. You can read that here.
I hope you enjoy my new novel.
