Introducing the Vintage Jane Austen

Saturday has arrived, and with it my special announcement!

You may have noticed me mentioning my WIP from time to time … but also, that I never went into any details. I was saving up until today.

The Vintage Jane Austen

A multi-author series due to be released Spring 2017! Six novels, six authors, six retellings of Jane Austen’s classic works set in turbulent Great Depression America.

I am honored to be a part of this team with my novel Suit and Suitability:

Canton, Ohio, 1935. Ellen and Marion Dashiell’s world crumbles when their father is imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. What is left of their family must relocate to a small town where survival overshadows dreams. Hard-working Ellen, trying to hold the family together, loses her job and is parted from the man she’s falling in love with, while Marion fears she will never be the actress she aspires to be and will never marry the dashing hero who has entered her life. But does a third man hold the key to the Dashiells’ restoration and happiness?

  1. Hi Kelsey! So excited . . . looking forward to those updates. I'm really missing getting to read the other stories. One of the bad things about finishing early is waiting. :P I'll share this post around as soon as your cover glitch is worked out. You've probably heard from Hannah by now that a problem arose with one of your images. It's only for specialized use, and until it's replaced I will minimized sharing your cover. (A pity,it's so lovely :( ) But looking forward to reading!

    1. Yes, I'm looking forward to talking more about it, too! I'm about bursting. :) Thank you for waiting---now the cover glitch is worked out, so we can promote! I really like this new photo! Such a cute old-fashioned town. :)

  2. I mean, minimize. Doing 50 things at once right now. lol
