Today is the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice and to celebrate author Alyssa Goodnight is hosting an Anniversary Party Blog Hop. Blogs all over the world are celebrating our favorite book today.
We are participating over on Indie Jane as well with reviews and giveaways of both my and Nancy’s books. On the Indie Jane post I talk a bit about how my perspective of Pride and Prejudice has changed since writing a book about it.
I’m not going to write a long post, or tell you why I think Pride and Prejudice is so awesome. If you’ve clicked here from the hop you probably already agree with me that it’s awesome. I really just want to say thanks to Jane Austen. Thanks for writing such a great book. Thanks for creating such indelible characters. Thanks for writing such a strong, witty female heroine. The dedication of Attempting Elizabeth pretty much sums it up for me:
For Jane, thank you for writing stories that I want to jump into.
Let’s have a giveaway to celebrate the anniversary! I’ll give one lucky winner a copy of my book Attempting Elizabeth and this adorable bookmark made with pages from Pride and Prejudice by Patty Marq. She has more bookmarks like this and gorgeous P&P valentine’s day cards. Make sure to check out her etsy shop.
