It’s May again, and I have been an Austen Author for two years. What a fun ride it has been! 🙂 I always have my May post on Memorial Day, which makes me giggle. I’m not sure who will read it … maybe I should have done a giveaway. LOL Anyway, I’m looking forward to … Continue reading Austen Authors May 28, 2018: Poems and updates
Last year, I wrote a post about dogs. I couldn’t have imagined then that a dog would play a central role in one of my books, but it has. In my current Work-In-Progress, called To Save Elizabeth, Lizzy has a therapy dog, a Great Dane named Brutus. Now, therapy dogs were not a “thing” in … Continue reading Austen Authors April 30, 2018: Therapy Dogs in Austen?

I am between releases and as often happens, had no idea what to write about for the blog today. As I was drifting off to sleep one night, I remembered a fun graphic organizer I had seen when I was teaching, on a site called Freeology. The result is below. It was meant to be … Continue reading Austen Authors March 5, 2018: If Jane Austen were on Facebook

I am currently in the midst of editing my NaNo story, which is set in the American West in 1878. It won’t be ready to publish for another week or so, and I didn’t realize how close my posting date here was, so my excerpt and giveaway will have to wait until February. 🙂 However, … Continue reading Austen Authors January 8, 2018: Comparing Regency England and the American Old West
Please note: The giveaway mentioned in this post is closed. This past Autumn, I accomplished two major-to-me things: I “won” NaNoWriMo, and I completed a sweet Christmas story. <3 My NaNo story is now being edited, so talking about that must wait. 😉 Last year, I had a rough Christmas. I have had many of … Continue reading Austen Authors December 11, 2017: Keeping it short and sweet … and giving books away!
Please note: The giveaway mentioned in this post is closed. Most of you probably know by now that I have recently published the second book in my racing series.

One of our duties or jobs as a writer, especially if we are self-published, is writing blurbs for our books. This can be more complicated than it seems. If you are a voracious reader like me, you have read thousands of blurbs. Some were intriguing, some not so much. Some inspired you to snatch a … Continue reading Austen Authors September 18, 2017: Book Blurbs
