To celebrate the impending release of my next book, "A Marriage of Attachment," the first book, "A Contrary Wind," is on sale at Amazon this week for $0.99. It is also available on Kindle Unlimited. Also in sale at Amazon.uk.
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!
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!
JAFF: Jane Austen Fan Fiction
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.
