My new friend Misty is hosting a month-long Jane Austen extravaganza at her blog, The Book Rat. Several posts a day will be added for the entire 30 days of June including reviews, guest essays, loads of giveaways, poems, letters to Jane, etc. Over thirty different Jane-lovers have been invited to participate so the offerings will be diverse and fun. Mark The Book Rat as the place to check out on a frequent basis this month.
Today, June 6, my post is showing up! I accumulated a bunch of facts about Jane, some well known and others more obscure, to put the focus squarely on the simple woman who wrote so brilliantly with no idea that her stories would be touching lives 200 years later to the point of devoting a month to her.
So stop by and read what I had to say, and then join in the rest of the fun. Let me know if you win one of the novels or prizes being given!!
And while I am on the subject of blogs: I realized recently that I never posted the blogs I wrote for the My Dearest Mr. Darcy virtual book tour in January here on the Darcy Saga. About a month after the releases of my first two novels I re-posted the dozens of guest blog essays and interviews here for the lasting enjoyment of my visitors who may have missed them. Why I forgot to do that for My Dearest Mr. Darcy is a mystery to me – busy writing new stuff, I suppose! Anyway, I will be doing that in spaced intervals throughout the month, so pop in now and again. Plus, it will fire up the passion in prep for the In The Arms of Mr. Darcy release that is less then 4 months away!!!
