One of the fun things for me around my book A Jane Austen Daydream is discovering how it is impacting its readers. A good example of what I mean is the recent article by Kelly Hand on her writing site “Work at Home Windows.” Her article is called “Daydreaming My Way to the Real Jane Austen.” You can read it here.
It is funny to read Kelly connecting me to pop culture. Looking over my blog, I guess I am that in a way. But I am very much a literary snob, I swear. For a time, I was working towards my PhD in English Literature at a major university. I’ve written posts on Joyce, Salinger, and Vonnegut! One of my dream projects is an adaptation of Hamlet!
Granted, I’ve probably written more on Star Trek and Doctor Who than on Chaucer (and yes, I am planning a post in the future on him and my experience with his work), but us snobs like TV too. There are no different team here. Shakespeare and Dickens were once part of their own pop culture. Same team. Same team!
Deep breath… Okay, you can read Kelly’s article here. Be WARNED– There is a massive SPOILER for A Jane Austen Daydream in the article.
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 enjoy it as well.
