Take a trip with an Austen fan

July 10th, 2012

I’ve always loved Susan Branch‘s homespun artwork and lovely books, and now I love her even more — it turns out she’s a Jane Austen fan!  Click here to check out her fabulous blog post about her recent trip to Chawton, and tour of Jane Austen’s house.  I was there a few years ago doing research for Pies & Prejudice, and reading her post was like being there again!

Wish I was there right now.  Sigh…

Podcast interview at Authors are ROCKSTARS!

December 10th, 2011

Allison and Michelle at Authors are ROCKSTARS! are debuting a new feature this month called “KidLit Corner.”  Guess who had the honor of being their first guest?  Yup.  Me!

Click here to hop on over and listen to our audio podcast interview.  (You can also download the mp3 file, or find the interview on iTunes.  Cool, huh?)

We had a blast — Allison and Michelle are smart and funny, and they put me right at ease.  Plus, do you love their logo or what?  That’s rockin’ Jane Austen on the drums in case you’re wondering…

But wait, there’s more!  After you listen to the interview, be sure and follow the directions on their blog to be entered in the giveaway for an autographed copy of HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!  Wheeeeeeeeeee…
