Make haste. Voting closes today 2/28/11 at 11:59:59 pm ET in the Jane Austen Made Me Do It Short Story Contest.
I am really pleased at the incredible turnout. 88 aspiring Austenesque writers submitted stories for your consideration and enjoyment. All of Jane Austen’s major novels, her life and and some of her minor works are represented.
Your vote could decide who makes it into the Top Ten and advances into the final round in the selection process. Don’t pass up the opportunity to have your say.
A big round of applause to all the authors. You are all winners just by writing and submitting a story, but one among you will be chosen to be included in the new anthology Jane Austen Made Me Do It to be released by Ballantine Books on 11 October, 2011.
Good luck to all!

Thank you again for this fabulous opportunity! It was great doing this small piece, and helpful to know that I CAN do it! Eagerly awaiting the results tomorrow!
Good Luck All!
Well done Kate. Jane and her passion for writing applauds you too.
I have already voted. There are about 7 that I loved but I hope the best story wins!
Thanks Laurel for giving us a chance to vote. All the best in picking a winner.
