HMS Trincomalee tour

My latest Austen Authors post will be particularly apropos for those following the online beta for A Season Lost: we're continuing on my ship tours with HMS Trincomalee. This is a frigate a bit newer but of comparable size to HMS Caroline, and I've called out some things in the post so you can see visually elements from the story.

A Season Lost online beta + audiobook giveaway

Hello, dear readers! Or should I say dear listeners?

I have several things to apprise you of. The first is that the audiobook for A Chance of Legacies is out! It's actually been out for a little while, but I wanted to pair my other bit of news with this and do a giveaway. So, I'm giving away three pairs of A Constant Love + A Change of Legacies in audiobooks. Simply reply to the Facebook post, Tweet, Goodreads post, or below in the blog, to enter, by midnight USA EST on April 7. If you already have the audiobook of A Constant Love, I'm happy to swap in a copy of Mistress if you win.


My second bit of news is that at long last A Season Lost is ready for online beta. I know it's been a long time coming, and this is in large part because it is the longest thus far of the series (and neither of its predecessors is exactly short!). You can read it and give feedback either on FanFiction.net or Archive of Our Own.

And if you need a refresher as to who is who, and the major marriages, I've posted an updated family tree good through February, 1816, when the book begins.

As with previous postings, this will be a limited-time thing. I'm aiming to put up five chapters every day or so, and will give a warning before it's to come down so that I can edit it further and get it ready for publication.

The yellow house in Winchester + a giveaway

It's time to finally bring this blog series on Austen Authors to a close, dear readers. I'm giving away more copies of the annotated and restored Pride and Prejudice, so be sure to visit and comment to enter! And stay tuned here for an update on the third book in the Constant Love series, and more giveaways.

A walk in Jane Austen's shoes

Was Jane Austen closer to Elizabeth Bennet or Fanny Price, when it came to walking? I'm answering that through first-hand experience in this month's Austen Authors post.

A little sea-bathing will NOT set me up forever

In my most recent Austen Author's post, I'm sharing my time at the seaside AND the first excerpt I believe I've posted from the upcoming A Season Lost. That's right, it's finally starting to hit the point where I can share excerpts! (Although admittedly it's still quite a way from being publication ready.)

The hidden key

In today's Austen Authors post, I'm writing about life and architecture in Bath, and yes, showing readers the hidden key within Bath.

A Regime of Fun

In my Austen Authors post today, I'm looking at the structured "regime of fun" that comprised entertainments of spa towns like Bath.
