Pride and Prejudice 200
What an exciting time I had last week! It was an honour to be so involved with the events of the 200 year anniversary of Pride and Prejudice. Below is the interview I had with David Sillito, the Arts Correspondent from the BBC, which also features our lovely Abigail Reynolds. I wish that they’d shown the whole interview as well as all the other wonderful authors who were interviewed too. If only we could all have been a part of it and together on this special day-now, that would have been a fantastic after party! I was so pleased to see our genre getting special recognition and I hope readers will see how much we’re motivated to write (and paint) by our love for that special lady and her books, Jane Austen!
Later on that day I travelled to Bath to take part in the Jane Austen Centre Readathon of Pride and Prejudice which was streamed live on the internet. Thank you to all the people who left such encouraging comments. It was a lot of fun and I was able to read four chapters in the end!
