Hi friends! I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time and I’m so happy it is here! Today I am welcoming one of the kindest and most genuine people in the Jane Austen community to Austenesque Reviews – author J. Dawn King! Not only is Joy a wonderfully kind and supportive writer – she is an extremely busy one! I am forever 3 books behind her! #NotComplaining. I am so happy Joy is paying us a visit today to talk about writing Austenesque stories in alternate settings! One of my favorite kinds of Austenesque stories!
Joy: Hello, Meredith! Thank you for inviting me to Netherfield. You have a lovely home. Is that cake for us?
Meredith: Yes, Joy, later. You mentioned when you called that you had something to ask me. Please feel free to do so at once.
Joy: Thank you, dear friend. (head bowed) Might I be seated?
Meredith: Absolutely! This sounds serious.
Joy: Oh, dear. I am sorry if I have worried you. But, indeed, yes. This is very serious.
