Dear readers, I need your help!

It's here! Pride and Prejudice: A Novel. In Three Volumes. (Annotated and Restored to 1813 Egerton First Edition) is now available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo stores,

However, please don't buy it for the $0.99 price at Amazon. It is meant to be free. Here is where I need you: help me make it free!

Amazon will not let me post it for less than 99 cents, however it's my understanding that they WILL lower the price if readers report they found a lower price elsewhere. So please go to Amazon and do so. Here is where you can find the link:


All you need to do is provide the Barnes and Noble or Kobo link and the price of 0. I have no idea how many people need to do this before it will kick in at Amazon, but I'd say if it's still not free when you visit, please do it.

Thank you for your help in achieving my goal of making this freely available!

More about the special project, vote on a cover, and time travel

It's been a full couple of days!

Today at Austen Authors I'm talking about who I would bring forward in time, to see the impact they'd had. And talking more about the special project, which is my effort to restore Pride and Prejudice to the 1813 Egerton first edition, and make it available digitally to readers. That teaser photo I posted? That's a real, live, first edition that I had a chance to work with at Goucher College.

And if you head over to Just Jane 1813, you can vote on the cover for this special edition of Pride and Prejudice. People have been even more across the board on the options than I'd expected so far, so make your voice heard!

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

I'm excited to be starting a new occasional series of posts at Austen Authors on books of Austen's time, which are also books that our dear characters might have read. The first is one of the most outrageous: Tristram Shandy.






These are eventually going to dovetail with a very special project I've been working on. I'm really excited about it but want to wait before sharing it so I don't spoil the surprise. But I WILL give a few little teasers: this is an editing and not a writing project, and I think it's very apropos this year.
