It’s Saturday! Time to relax after the long week of work, kids, and chaotic real life. Grab your tea or coffee, get comfy, and spend a bit of time in another world with Jane Austen as presented by the Austen Authors who adore her.
This week was special for us because along with our usual complement of excellent blog posts by our authors, we welcomed a NEW Austen Author! SARAH PRICE joined our ranks officially, bringing our number up to 20. Yippee!! We are very excited about the awesome, diverse authors we have in our midst. So much fun lies ahead!
