What a splendid site! A novel about Mary Bennett is long overdue.
Love the new website layout! Whoever designed it did a good job. Thank you Sarah! It was Abigail's choice of theme, and together we got it done. Took some work, and there are a few bugs still to adjust, but we love it! Best of all, it will be speedier to load, especially for mobile devices Sharon Lathan
I just discovered this site, while searching for reviews of the Austen critique "Bitch in a Bonnet..." I'm ecstatic, being not quite a Janeite myself, but way beyond the casual Austen reader (read every book twice; saw many of the adaptations; read several critiques of her work; participate in discussions). I'll definitely be back again! My only complaint: I wanted to comment on the post "Austen: Romantic or Pragmatist?" but couldn't find anywhere to do so. Does one have to be a member? Or am I helplessly lost? Again, I'm thrilled you're here and I shall return. Hello Marcy! So happy you found us. I do hope you will return, often. And of course we do have lots of options for terrific Austenesque reading material. On the comments: Posts older than two weeks have commenting deactivated to reduce spam. I'm not sure off the top of my head if the one you mentioned falls into that category. Otherwise, the comment feature is right at the end of each blog post, just under the author's biography. Hope that helps! Sincerely, Sharon Lathan
I was reading someone's blog on a new possible Darcy book that takes place in the present. He shows up a a syposim to tell his side because he says, Jane left a lot out of the story. I can't remember whose page I was on. Can anyone help me out? I'm not sure what origin and homepage mean.
Quite amazed at myself in being so ignorant of this page until today! I've been a dedicated fan of many of you for years, and snatch up your books like they're chocolate! Looking forward to discovering the delights of this blog, as well as the rest of the authors! I may need to extend my Jane Austen book shelf!
Sorry I forgot to add the Sunshine Award link: http://www.everythingbooksandauthors.com/1/post/2013/07/the-sunshine-award-10-random-things-about-me.html
Hi, Austen Authors ! I love this blog and I wanted to show my appreciation. I don't know if you're an award-accepting blog but if you are: here's a Sunshine Award for you: Happy blogging, and thank you xx BTW ~ if this isn't a good time or you're too busy to accept, or if this is an award-free zone, I understand. It's just for a bit fun, so don't worry! xx
Thanks to all the other Jane Austen fans out there. You make my life more enjoyable knowing that others out there appreciate the writing masterpieces she composed.
My husband introduced me to Abigail Reynolds books over a year ago. He knows how much I love Jane Austen! Recently he found the Pemberly Chronicles by Rebecca Ann Collins and I'm addicted (even starting with the 5th book in the series)
And the plot thickens! But... I do wish Elizabeth would show more "metal". I miss her courage and forardness.
Just read #3 of the P&P:RC. Great job Diana! Loved the way the story is progressing. I can't wait for the next installment! Thanks!!!
What a Treasure Trove! I love it! I look forward to exploring this site.
Thank you to you all for working so diligently on all of your works. I do enjoy them so. Thank you for coming together to form this site and society.
I have just discovered the world of Austen Authors and am so excited to start reading...but where do I start? So many authors to choose from. But, I just have to say it, can you really add to Austen's work, or re-imagine the story line?? I do hope so and can't wait to see for myself.
Wanted to say thanks for the giveaway prize. Mine, Pulse and Prejudice by Colette Saucier, arrived today!
Dear Ms. Orourke, I had to write to tell you how much I continue to enjoy your book, The Man who Loved Jane Austen. I am on a sixth read over the years and everytime I read it, it gets better and better.....Just a few words of thanks and praise....
I just found your website and I love it. I just hosted my 3rd annual "Jane Austen Day" party and I have just started reading JA continuation novels this spring. Now I look forward to reading all of the books on your list! What a great site - thank you!
Last fall while sitting in my grade 10 english class, my teacher managed to convince me to read Pride and Prejudice. It took me a while at first to get into it, but after reading some books by the Austin Authors, i picked up P and P with a new vigour. So i wanted to say thank you to all Austen Authors, without you, i would have never been able to get throught the first few chapters of that AMAZING novel
Always thankful to discover more JA inspired authors! A wonderful site!
I just wrote a blog about my top 10 favorite Jane Austen Fan Fiction books and then I stumbled upon this beautiful site. I've been enjoying these books since college and always try to keep an eye out for new ones at the bookstore. Thanks to Austen Authors I now have a reference point and place to share my love of these fabulous books that honor such a fabulous literary woman. Perfect as well because I'm going to re-read the Big 6 this summer and will need follow up books once I finish
