“Finding Jane’s Voice” A Guest Post and Book Giveaway on Indie Jane

A Sketch of JaneToday I am honored to have an exclusive post on Indie Jane celebrating the release of my novel A Jane Austen Daydream. The Post is called “Finding Jane’s Voice: Creating A Jane Austen Daydream.” Here is an excerpt from the beginning of my new article:

We love to put our heroes on pedestals.


This is as true for writers and readers as it is for anyone else. Yet, in the world of literature it also feels more than the popular “don’t speak ill of the dead” rule we all follow at funerals. In literature, we seem to recreate authors as saints. For example, we think of Charles Dickens as the celebrator of Christmas and fighter against children labor and poverty… before we think of how awfully he treated his children and first wife.


You need all sides of a person, the good and the bad, to get any clear picture of the individual, and for hundreds of years now we have looked at Jane Austen through a hazy lens. There are many reasons for this and part of it is, frankly, we have no choice.
