In the Circle

Just a quickie post this morning to wish you all a very happy FRIDAY (yippee!) and to share with you one cool link that my Kensington publicist forwarded to me yesterday. Family Circle magazine has an online edition called "Inner Circle," and Cheryl Grant, one of their editors, read According to Jane and posted a little something about it here. Definitely made my day/week (!!!), despite all the rainy, cold weather we've been having... Hope it's sunnier where you are.

Enjoy the weekend, everyone :).

Marilyn,
Hi, Im from Mexico City and 21 years old, and I just finished reading According to Jane , Im a Jane Austen fan and i truly loved your book. I read A LOT, and I devoured your book in 24 hrs. I could not put it down.
I think Ellie is one of the most real characters I have ever read, I could really relate to her.
It is wonderful to believe that there are Mr. Darcy´s out there. Thank you very much for a beautiful, amazing romantic story.
I believe it will become the favorite of many many women in the future, and it is now one of mine.

Hope to read more novels form you, your now fan from Mexico,

My best regards,
Carla Sierra.

Eliza~I love the image you just gave me! I can see the front cover of the book, jumping out in odd places, much like the gopher in "Caddyshack" popped out of the holes in the golf course :).

Thanks, Nadine! I was really excited.

Carla Sierra (what a beautiful name you have :), thank you so much for reading my book and taking time to tell me about it!! I'm thrilled that you loved the story and that you could relate to Ellie. I hope you'll visit my blog whenever you have time and join in the discussions. I'd love to hear from you again!

That's so exciting to have a positive review in a national magazine! Looks like that writer knows what she's talking about in the book department :-)
