Jane Austen week

Hello Royal Readers,

How many of you have read a book by Jane Austen? If you are like me that book will have left an imprint on your heart and mind for all eternity. There is something about her writing although from a different era remains fresh and new as though it transcends time. Over the past few years Jane Austen’s books have received more notoriety than ever thanks not only to the film industry, but to the talented authors who have created spin-offs, add-ons, and rewrites of Austen’s work. So join us here at Royal Reviews as we take a look into the world of Jane Austen.

Also don’t forget to leave your thoughts and comments, our lovely reviews love to hear what you are thinking. So do you remember your first encounter with Jane Austen and her witty characters?

A fun fact about Jane Austen

- Jane Austen never wrote a scene in which men are left alone, she said that she could not write a scene with only men because she did not know what they talked about when left alone.

Here are a few of my favorite spin-off authors

Abigail Reynolds
Monica Fairview
Sharon Lathan
Marsha Altman
