Well, I have done it. It was a total accident, but I have written a stock car racing story featuring Darcy and Lizzy. Since I don’t have the right to use the NASCAR name, the book will just be about a generic stock car racing series. I will have to make it part of the … Continue reading Austen Authors April 3, 2017: Pride & Prejudice & Racecars
Normally, it’s not terribly difficult for me to come up with a good blog post. This month was different. I have had so many things on my mind lately, about writing and reviews and author notes and Elizabeth Bennet’s character and the differences between JAFF and regular Regency romances and on and on…that it was … Continue reading Austen Authors March 6, 2017: Jane Austen and Dogs
Welcome back to Austen Promises! Today's post will end Chapter 3. It's another nice, long post. <3 We left off in the middle of a race scene last week, so we pick it up there today.

Welcome back to Austen Promises! Today's short story was inspired by the sounds and sights of birds nesting (and all the activity that nesting entails.) I was delighted today to walk the dogs in the sun, hear the birds, and watch them building nests. I know it's still February, but ... spring has sprung! <3 … Continue reading Thursday’s 300: Spring has sprung
Please note that the giveaway mentioned in this post is closed. January is always a fun month. Well, when I was teaching, it was fun for a day or two and then school started again and the snow started falling and things got ugly. 😉 Now, however, I am a writer, and I can look … Continue reading Austen Authors January 9, 2017: New Year, New Book, New Giveaway

Welcome back to Austen Promises! I seem to be able to write again, finally! Yay!! <3 This little tidbit was inspired by the rough night of sleep I got post-Daytona 500, due to the acid reflux that resulted from partying way too hard during the race! 😀 Did you know that for a monthly pledge of … Continue reading Thursday’s 300: Get some sleep, Mrs. Darcy!
As you may recall from November’s post, I spent a week in Phoenix, visiting my aunt. I travelled by air and arrived within seven hours of leaving Cleveland. The return trip was not so smooth, and I spent the night in Charlotte’s airport (with nary a race shop in sight ~sigh~), finally arriving back in … Continue reading Austen Authors December 12, 2016: Regency Roads
The day this blog entry posts, I will be in Arizona, visiting my aunt and recovering from another race day. And yes, I took my 70-year-old aunt to her first NASCAR race. 😉 In preparation for my trip, I needed to decide what to take with me: my laptop and my tablet or just … Continue reading Austen Authors November 14, 2016: Quill Pens
