I blog so very rarely that I feel I have to start each post with, “hi lovelies, so I’m not dead…”
Life is a crazy, wild ride consisting mostly of single-momming and working and driving up and down a mountain every day. Blogging tends to get lost in the haze. But I actually have something to say, so I here I go:
Holidays with Jane: Spring Fever is HERE. It’s out in the world! A new, shiny book of awesome.
Once again, I am so blessed and honored to be a part of this project with so many amazing authors. The ladies who write these stories with me are some of the best people I know and I love reading their work and I’m giddy that I get to work with them! (Also, Victoria Austen-Young rocks yet another cover design, because rocking is her standard operating procedure.)
Winter’s almost over and Jane Austen’s got a case of spring fever! The authors who brought you Holidays With Jane: Christmas Cheer return to bring you six modern retellings of Austen’s classics. So put up your parasols and prepare for sunshine, smiles, and, of course, happily ever afters.
