On the heels of the very successful The Darcy Monologues, Christina Boyd has conceived and rounded up a new anthology of short stories featuring Jane Austen's "bad boys." And yours truly was asked to contribute a story!
It was a real pleasure and an honour to contribute to this project. And it wasn't easy keeping quiet about this news all summer! If you head over to Babblings of a Bookworm, or Austenesque Reviews, you can enter a draw for a free copy and some other great Austen-themed prizes!
This November, you can read the works of eleven different devoted Janeite writers, each one exploring the personality and back story of a different Austen character, such as John Thorpe and Colonel Tilney from Northanger Abbey, Willoughby from Sense & Sensibility, and of course Mansfield Park's Henry Crawford, is represented. It will be very interesting to see what eleven different authors do with their assigned gentleman rogue!
