Character Interview Tomorrow Aug. 31, 2016

An author friend, Anna, is doing a blog tomorrow interviewing Jeremy McKetcheon, my hero for Abbey's Tale. It is funny how we writers think we're creating characters and sometimes they take on a life of their own. If you enjoy meeting Jeremy, I hope you'll consider Abbey's Tale when it comes out soon at www.thewildrosepress.com The direct link to Anna's post is:

Jane Austin is Alive and Well!

Probably everyone else already knows this but I just became aware that there is a revival of Jane Austin type authors mostly in the UK but other English speaking countries as well. And why not, her novels have been made into popular modern day movies. She could even have her own advice column like Dear Abby or Advice for the love lorn. One of the first authors to seriously dissect the relationships between men and women, customs and times, Jane is worth emulating.
