Please note: The giveaway mentioned in this post has ended! It’s that time again … I have completed another novel. 🙂 This one is called Darcy Overhears. It is 43,038 words and 216 printed pages of awesomeness, if I do say so myself. <3 ~~~***~~~ This story began as a tiny “what if.” What if … Continue reading Austen Authors October 15, 2018: Darcy’s eavesdropping, and I’m giving books away!
I thought for a long time about what I should say in this month’s post. After a few hours of race-watching (it was a postponed race, so I was watching on Monday instead of Sunday) and bouncing several ideas around in my mind, I decided to go with something writing-related. Suddenly, I thought about our … Continue reading Austen Authors September 17, 2017: Jane Austen’s Writing Desk
I recently went on a vacation with my sister. We’ve never done anything like this before, and I wish we had. It was great to spend that time with her and do things together. We went to Kentucky, visiting the Ark Encounter on Friday and Kentucky Speedway on Saturday. The last time I was at … Continue reading Austen Authors July 23, 2018: Another year, another race, another reader

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?
Please note: The giveaway mentioned in this post is closed. I’m happy to announce that I (finally) have Darcy’s Surprise Betrothal completed! By the time this post goes live, the book should be available for purchase. 🙂 This book is kind of a new start for me. Last year, I published seven books, five of … Continue reading Austen Authors April 2, 2018: A New Title, a New Cover Style, and a Giveaway
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
Please note: The giveaway mentioned in this post is closed. You probably remember that last month in my post, I compared Regency England with the American Old West. At the time, I told you that my book wasn’t quite ready to put out into the world. In the intervening weeks, it became ready, and Darcy’s … Continue reading Austen Authors February 5, 2018: Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gold Mine Owner
