I discovered Meryton Press a couple of years ago not long after I discovered Jane Austen Fan Fiction (JAFF) or what I call Austenesque books. I have read so many of their quality stories. It was a true pleasure when I was invited to submit monthly posts to their blog.

For my debut blog post, I discuss how my love for Jane Austen novels has been effected by time and experience. Stop by and share... Read more of this blog post »

Marie Williams Thank you for accepting!! :) I saw you rated a Deeanne Gist book. Someone recommended her books last week, and I wondered of you also like them. I tend to have some reservation about Christian fiction. I don't mind the inspirational aspect, but the three page sermons that wax poetic on all things faith can be a little heavy-handed and pull out of the story.


Christine Thank you for accepting :) See you around.

Ms. Phoenix Thanks for acceptin. It's all about the peeves. I didn't mind at the beginning because I was still testing the waters in the romance genre but now I know what I will like and what I won't.

Haha! Goddess, no not really. I am one of those people who read really fast and have a high comprehension when I do it. It can be a curse because I do get through books pretty fast. I also have a job in Adult and Family literacy plus I review for a blog so I get to feed my habit easily.

Celia Holy mother do you read! 2189?! That's in the thousands (notice thousand in PLURAL!)

You are a pure reading goddess, how do you read that much?
I read around 15 books per month and having a functional social life, while I studying (I confess I read more fun books than my uni's) is hard!

Do tell, do you have a special reading style?

A balcony sounds wonderful! It is pleasant to imagine a nice summer reading spot since right now there are drifts of snow outside and an icy rain blowing against my window, but thankfully I need not be out in it and its warm here inside. ;)

Felicities!

Michael Hi,

No problem, your reading environments sound very nice. Cosy winter reading or lazy summer reading in the heat, perfect. Think my favourite reading spot is on my balcony in summer, just can't beat a good book, the sun and a cold drink.

Sophia Kate wrote: "Try "Charlotte Collins" by Jennifer Becton. I also quite enjoyed "Willoughby's Return" by Jane Odiwe. Have you read anything from Elizabeth Aston? Hope you get a chance to read these! :D"

I've only read Elizabeth Austen, but I do have both Jennifer Becton and Jane Odiwe books on my kindle to read. Those are great suggestions.

Have you read Pamela Aiden or Susan Kaye? I like those the best for getting in the heads of Darcy and Wentworth.


Kate  Maxwell Try "Charlotte Collins" by Jennifer Becton. I also quite enjoyed "Willoughby's Return" by Jane Odiwe. Have you read anything from Elizabeth Aston? Hope you get a chance to read these! :D


Kate  Maxwell Thanks for the friend request. We share the love of Persuasion as our favorite Jane Austen. I like your avatar :D


Sophia Sherri of A Thousand Books wrote: "Thanks for the friend request! Looks like we have MANY books in common - another female Louis L'amour fan is always welcome!"

Oh yes! Do you have a favorite? I love the Sacketts, but I must say that my favorite is Flint or the Kilkenny Trilogy. I even love his non-western adventure and detective stories too.

How far are you along in the Outlander series? I'm caught up until the new one comes out. I just got all the Lord John spin-offs, but haven't read them yet.

And Patricia Briggs? Moon Called was my first foray into Urban Fantasy and the series remains my favorite other than Karen Chance's Dory Basarab series.

Feel free to recommend to me! I'm always on the hunt for a abso-fab story.


SheLove2Read Thanks for the friend request! Looks like we have MANY books in common - another female Louis L'amour fan is always welcome!
