Now and then, you get a review that you know will stick with you as an author. Sometimes they are good, sometimes they are bad, but they will be part of your makeup as an artist from that moment on, adding to your personal resume, changing you.
Today, I was honored to have The Jane Austen Centre in Bath review my latest novel A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM. Here is a quote from their review:
If asked to sum up this book in one word, I would have to choose “unpredictable”. Going into it, all I knew was that it was not a biography, and its purpose was to satisfy the author by giving Jane the happy future he would have chosen for her. Safe to say, even for the advanced Austen scholar, it will be impossible to predict where the tale will twist and turn. For those of you who are exhausted by the innumerable retellings of Austen’s novels, this is a style entirely new.
And then there is this from the review:
If you are looking for something new this summer—something light, for reading at the beach, perhaps—and can, like a purveyor of fine fiction, willingly suspend your disbelief, you will, in the end, be rewarded by a quick paced novel unlike any you can ever have read, which injects new ideas and possibilities into the world of Jane Austen.
I could not be more honored. I am speechless (and for those that know me or follow my blog that is a trick to pull off). You can read the rest of the review via this link.
A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM is available via amazon.com where you can find it in print for just $9.85 in print and only $3.99 for the eBook. Here is the link: http://amzn.com/0983671923
I hope you enjoy A JANE AUSTEN DAYDREAM
Outstanding! I purchased the book, but I’m waiting to finish two I’m already reading before I begin. This review makes me want to hurry up and finish the other books! Good for you.

In a word, Thrilling. Were I you, I would simply die and go to heaven right now.
I’ve almost finished the book, and I must say that The Jane Austen Centre really nailed it … the reviewer gets you and why you wrote the book. How fabulous is that, Scott!
Congratulations! You deserve so deserve these accolades.
I have two little kids, they would never forgive me if I did in happiness right now. LOL.
I’m glad you are enjoying it. Would you consider writing a review on amazon or on Good Reads when you are done? It’s all about word of mouth for a book like this.
