New Austen Authors Blog

I am sharing an email I received from Danielle at Sourcebooks about a new blog that will go live on September 6, 2010. I can't wait for this blog to begin. As you can see from the email, there are 20 authors who will contribute. There will be contests and posts from all Austen lovers so I hope you will all check it out. After finishing Darcy's Voyage by Kara Louise recently, I can honestly say, the title of this new blog certainly fits. I just visited the site Austen Authors..because there's never enough Jane Austen!

Dear Wisteria,

Tomorrow, September 6, marks the official launch of,
a labor of love started by two Sourcebooks Landmark authors, Sharon Lathan
and Abigail Reynolds. Noticing the success of group author blogs in the romance
genre, they decided to gather up some of their fellow Jane Austen Fiction
comrades and start a group blog!
After putting together some initial plans in August, Sharon and Abigail began to contact Austen authors from all publishers and the final list of 20 contributors is very impressive:
¨       Susan Adriani
¨       Marsha Altman
¨       Marilyn Brant
¨       Skylar Burris
¨       Jack Caldwell
¨       Carolyn Eberhart
¨       Monica Fairview
¨       Regina Jeffers
¨       Cindy Jones
¨       Sharon Lathan
¨       Kara Louise
¨       Kathryn Nelson
¨       Jane Odiwe
¨       C. Allyn Pierson
¨       Abigail Reynolds
¨       Mary Lydon Simonsen
¨       Heather Lynn Rigaud
¨       Victoria Connelly
¨       J. Marie Croft
¨       Lynn Shepherd
Staring on September 6, daily blogs posts will be put up, celebrations of new books going into stores will be had, and for the launch month of the blog, many giveaways and contests will be held!

Thank you for supporting our launch. It has been such a thrill to connect with writers from other publishing houses, and with so many fans of Jane Austen. "One cannot have too large a party. A large party secures its own amusement."
