Tomorrow a group blog of which I was a member from September 2010 to January 2014 will relaunch with a whole new group of Austen-inspired authors. Sharon Lathan and I will act as administrators for Austen Authors, which will rise from the ashes as did the fabled Phoenix.

This weekend, one can find the “Launch” giveaway details, as well as the winners from our pre-Launch activities. The real, “get-down-to-business” posts begin on Monday, January 26. So, if you are a reader who needs more Austen in your life, please check us out.

Among our happy crew, we have those who write sequels, retellings, variations, and contemporary stories. Some set their stories in Regency England, while others explore the same concepts, but in a modern world. There are those who write women’s fiction and those who write for young adults. Most also pen stories beyond the Austen realm, but they return often to the “love” they have for Jane Austen. There is something for every reader. (Click on the links below to discover more about each of our authors.) Authors participating is the group blog are…

  1. SO SO SO excited!! One more day! Thanks for taking this journey with me, Regina. Your friendship means the world to me 🙂

    Great idea! I’ll be checking out blog and mentioned authors.

  3. Lou says:

    Bring it on all you wonderful Austen writers! Can never get enough…and would love to name specific authors names…but want all of this group to know how much this reader is looking forward to this Phoenix rising!

  4. Anji says:

    Looking forward to it. Some of you are known to me already but some of you aren’t. Looking forward to getting to know some new (to me) authors.

  5. This certainly seems to be a female dominated thing, are there no male writers who use Miss Austens works as a starting point to a career in writing?

  6. Sophia Rose says:

    Ah, good for you gals! I look forward to see your group back and posting together. Congrats!

    • It is not the same group, Sophia. Just Sharon and I from the original AuAu bunch, but we have 17 more Austen-inspired authors, some you may know and some you have yet to meet.

  7. Reblogged this on Jessica Jefferson, Romance Author and commented:
    This is great!
