My fellow Austenesque author, Mark Brownlow, lets me talk about why I love 18th century writing over at his website, Lost Opinions. Thanks, Mark!
Visit Mark's website for the interview, stay for the very witty 18th century inboxes--and check out his very civilized novels, Cake and Courtship and The Lovesick Maid!
I managed to keep the secret, and now we can announce the latest anthology of short stories from editor Christina Angela Boyd.
Rational Creatures is a collection of stories about Jane Austen's female characters. As our editor explains:
My assigned rational creature is Mrs. Clay, the "clever, insinuating, handsome woman," who tries to flatter her way into the affections of Sir Walter Elliot in Persuasion.
I always wanted to know more about Penelope Clay's story -- why was her marriage "unprosperous"? What was she talking about with Mr. Elliot when Mary and Anne saw her from the window of the White Hart Inn? In my short story, all will be revealed!
Watch for the release of Rational Creatures in October of 2018!
Hello! My sequel to my first novel, A Contrary Wind, is now ready for the beta reading stage! " A Marriage of Attachment continues the story of Fanny Price, Edmund Bertram and other characters from Mansfield Park. But you do not have to have read my novel or Mansfield Park to be a beta reader. I would like to complete the beta reading stage by April 20th.
If you would like to have a look at this Austenesque novel which has romance, suspense and even some danger, please use this link http://bit.ly/amoabeta and use the secure form to send me your email address. I'll be in touch with you.
About the author:
I'm a writer and a teacher of English as a Second Language. "Laowai" means foreigner. Check further down for tags for specific subjects. I'm trying to blog about China AND Jane Austen inspired fiction at the same time. Welcome!

TINYFCC: This is not your father's Communist China
YDCTHTCAETTBELH: You don't come all the way to China and expect things to be exactly like home.
Ground rules: No snarking and sniping behind people's backs. Golden Rule applies. Except for:
Pleasant Goat: unsettling, creepy, Chinese cartoon character.
