Jane Austin Exhibit? In HAMILTON, NZ?

Do I have a special treat for you today!

JaneAusten

Today we went to the  Jane Austin Exhibit at the Hamilton Museum in Hamilton, New Zealand. And that means you get to see what we saw.   

 There were various items of clothing from an Australian collection of British clothing from the time of Jane Austen’s writing, around 1815. We met with our local Coast to Coast Chapter of the RWNZ. It was great to see some of the names of certain items of clothing which had previously eluded me!

Another surprise treat for you,

The Bluestocking Belles, of which both Jude Knight and I are also members, are having a launch party for our own upcoming Christmas Boxed Set, too!

Help the Bluestocking Belles celebrate the release of the cover of their 2018 joint project. Games, prizes, pretty dresses, and books. What could be better? There will be heaps of prizes, books, and lots of fun. And you’re invited!  It’s TOMORROW!

Right here!

Hope to see you there!

Jane AustenMy Works in Progress

I’ve just completed a story for the Bluestocking Belles and immediately got stuck into my two current WIPs, one for Authors of Main Street, and one for ME… or rather… more than one for me…

You see, it’s a little like this… Tatiana (unusual… lol…  for me) has become… slightly… long. STOP laughing and just read on.

Tatiana

JaneAusten

The long-awaited Tatiana, another book in The Long Trails series, will become a series of its own. As Matt has repeatedly told me, it WILL be long… like… War & Peace long, so it will be multiple volumes. Too crazy to print, otherwise! The good news is that the first volume is expected out in time for Christmas!

Here’s the blurb!

When the tsar holds the reins, nothing is sure— even life itself…     

Stableman’s daughter Tatiana rises to glamorous heights by her equestrienne abilities, but the tsar’s glittering attention is not always gold.

She and her husband Vladimir become pawns in the emperor’s pursuit of a coveted secret weapon. While Tatiana and their infant son are placed under house arrest, Vladimir must recover the weapon, or lose his wife and young son.

With the odds mounting against them, can they find each other again—half a world away?

Watch for it for Christmas!

This book will follow my New Zealand Historical Fiction,

A Sea of Green Unfolding

available everywhere!

AOMS Christmas Boxed Set

My current AoMS Christmas contemporary is set in rural North Island New Zealand in the 1990s. It features Lena from the Once Upon a Vet School series, but several years on. It will later be part of the OAVS series, but for now, it is an AoMS Christmas Boxed Set novella!

Watch for it, it will be out in the next few months!

Here’s my part of the boxed set!  (and no, you cannot see the cover yet!)

Have a wonderful month, all! Take care and happy reading and writing!

    Have to admit I haven’t read a lot of Jane Austen, but I love the time period and the clothes.

    • If you haven’t seen Kiera Knightley’s Pride and Prejudice, suggest you do. Today. 🙂
      LOVELY.

      After that movie, the books make a lot more sense. They seemed pretty silly to me before I saw the movies.

      Thanks for coming by!
