Austen Authors Launches Today!!

An official invitation from the group (and, perhaps, from the ghost of Jane herself):


Writers of Jane Austen fiction cordially invite you to the Launch of

‘Austen Authors’

and to share in our passion for her world... because there’s never enough Jane Austen.

We look forward to the pleasure of your company on Monday, September 6, 2010, and daily thereafter.

Throughout September, during our Launch Extravaganza, there will be posts by many of your favourite Austen-related fiction writers as well as contests, quizzes, a scavenger hunt, oodles of information, spotlight guest Amanda Grange (Mr. Darcy, Vampyre), new release parties, author introductions, entertainment, humour, polls, secrets, recipes, games galore, and giveaways of gifts and books from the authors and their publishers. Mark your calendar, join us, and be sure to post comments.

"My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company."
~ Jane Austen ~


I confess I did not write this on behalf of our group, but I simply love the British spelling of "favourite" and "humour" and could not bring myself to change this :).

We're going to have a great September in our new Austen playground. Hope you'll join us!
