“Touching… Entertaining… Unexpected…” The Historical Novel Society reviews A Jane Austen Daydream!

Jane AustenThis week, my new novel A Jane Austen Daydream was reviewed in the recent issue of the Historical Novel Society! So very cool.

Here is an excerpt:

Novels are also little fun if predictable and in creating a story of Jane’s life, where the facts and incidents are already known, Scott Southard has managed to produce both an unexpected and unconventional story. A Jane Austen Daydream captures the warmth, laughter, folly, wisdom, and grief that must have been present in Jane’s family life and surroundings for her to have produced her novels. And in Southard’s novel dear Jane is given a much kinder end.

You can read the entire positive review here.  A Jane Austen Daydream

A Jane Austen Daydream can be purchased in print ($13.46) or as an eBook for the outrageously low price of $3.99 for Kindle. You can find it on Amazon here (http://amzn.com/B00CH3HQUU). I hope you will consider checking it out.

    • Honestly, it is a very wonderful surprise.

      See, I never really considered the book historical fiction in the strictest sense of the genre. If I forced my plot down that road I wouldn’t be able to do a lot of the fun surprises I attempt in it. I wanted to create a novel more influenced by her own stories, and less by historical accuracies. It is one of the reasons why “Daydream” is in the title. Also, I have a preface that explains that as well as historical changes that are evident to most Janeities right from the first page.

      I hope you will check it out! Cheers!
