Cover Reveal of Jane Austen Made Me Do It

Jane Austen Made Me Do It: Original Stories Inspired by Literature's Most Astute Observer of the Human Heart , edited by Laurel Ann Nattress (2011)

Waving my flag for the cover of my book Jane Austen Made Me Do It, and feeling incredibly fortunate and humbled by the reality that this is really happening after so many months of hard work by many.

For the benefit of anyone who does not know, Jane Austen Made Me Do It: Original Stories Inspired by Literature’s Most Astute Observer of the Human Heart is a short story anthology of Jane Austen-inspired stories from 23 best selling and popular authors. It releases on 11 October, 2011 from Ballantine Books, and I am the editor. I am also the luckiest Janeite in the world to see my dream come true. *sniff*

If you are so inclined, the book may be pre-ordered at many online booksellers including Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Now I need that shot of port please.

Cheers,

Laurel Ann
