I have finally taken my first step into historical fiction 😀 I am thrilled, and so proud of this book, and so I guess if you’ve loved all my factual posts on this blog then this is probably the book for you… Try it… It’s definitely Pride and Prejudice style and looks at how she developed that story and absolutely – no zombies! 😉
Praise for my non romance works
‘Once again Jane Lark spellbound me’ – BestChickLit.com
‘Jane Lark writes so beautifully’ – Sorcha O’Dowd Amazon reviewer
‘Jane’s portrayal of the Battle of Waterloo and the feelings both Ellen and Paul had to go through are described excellently. As mentioned above, this book is a lot more heart-wrenching’ – Heidi (The Lost Love of a Soldier)
‘Goodness, this lady can write emotion!’ – avidreader Amazon reviewer
A story of Jane Austen’s life you will not know…
Jane’s father dies and a dark cloud smothers her desire to write. She becomes dependent on her brothers, and is reduced to living among vagabonds and prostitutes. Her life has become the gothic horror she had imagined for Susan. But everything begins anew when a distant cousin dies and the unimaginable forces of fate takeover.
Fate leads Jane to step through the door of Stoneleigh Abbey, into the life of riches lived by her ancestors. It sets her imagination alight once more when she is drawn into the setting of her cousin’s fight to inherit the beautiful property which Jane falls in love with. During her stay moments of reality inspire fiction, creating a collage of ideas and written images which become the foundations for her stories…
And you, my blog readers, were involved in this story from the beginning, if you look back through my blog posts you’ll see my first posts on Stoneleigh Abbey years ago. I had the idea for the story then, but it’s taken a little while to work out how to put it together just right 😀
I hope you enjoy the story!
It’s only available on Amazon as an ebook right now, as I’m looking for a home for it that will put it in print, but I didn’t want to keep waiting to get it out to my readers until then, so here it is. The Authoress by Jane Lark
