Just launched! The Austen Authors now have a story board for posting excerpts, novellas and short stories, and it's called The Writer's Block. Many of the offerings are, of course, Austen-related, but there are places for those of us to contribute tidbits of our other novels as well. I've never posted on fiction boards of any kind before, so this is a new venture for me -- and a fun one, too.
Another new venture -- having just completed our second week out of thirteen -- is the Austen Twitter Project, which is a hoot! It's a collaborative effort between Austen lovers from around the globe (anyone can participate, btw, it's not restricted to published authors), during which we're writing in real Twitter time a story called "The Ball at Pemberley." Each participant tweets the next lines in the tale during a set time slot every Tuesday. You can follow the meandering -- and often hilarious -- story with the #A4T hashtag and, also, every Sunday on the Austen Authors blog, the new transcript of the week will be up. (Here is part one.) Sign up for a slot and join us, if you'd like!
Finally, I get a to have double the fun at Magical Musings this week. Today, I'm interviewing debut historical women's fiction author Kristina McMorris (and she's giving away a copy of her fab novel, Letters from Home). And, tomorrow, I've got book giveaways and great romantic moments from three wonderful romance authors and friends: Robin Kaye, Laura Moore and Tina Radcliffe. Very excited to get to share these with all of you!
Hope everyone has been having a lovely Valentine's Week ;).
