Please join me at my new home – Austen Variations! The focus of this new group blog will be on group and special writing projects. We’ll also have excerpts from Works in Progress, free fiction from participating authors, and more opportunities for interaction between readers and authors. The Reader’s Choice story I’ve been participating in, The Darcy Brothers, has moved there, too.
This spring we’ll be starting the Persuasion200 Project which is a retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion in real time. What does that mean? If the story was “real” it would have begun 200 years ago this spring. We’ll be adding all the scenes Austen never wrote following the timing of the original story. If you join us, you’ll read scenes from before the story began such as Anne and the Captain’s first courtship and naval scenes from Wentworth’s career, scenes that were omitted, and existing scenes from different points of view. Plus we’ll have historical background of the times.
I will still be maintaining my personal author blog here in addition to my contributions to Austen Variations.
