Hello hello hello!

When I wished to step down as moderator of this group, but could find no one who wished to take over, it means I am still technically moderator.

For the first time in years I have logged back into goodreads and was amazed to still see some activity here!

I hope everyone is well. I, myself, have had a crazy few years in the Austen world, my blog (Laughing With Lizzie), leading me to all sorts of exciting opportunities, such a starring in a BBC documentary about jane Austen fans (My Friend Jane).


and last year I was contacted by a publisher to ask me if I could write a book for them, so I am now a published author! It came out a few weeks ago. It is so mad to think that I would ever have had such good luck when I started falling in love with Austen aged 16, and then starting sharing my passion with lots of lovely people on here. How the time flies too! I am now 23.


I hope you are all well and still ardent Jane Austen fans.

Best,
Sophie

Thanks for the support. I am dropping in to say hi , and after another crazy year I actually now have a second book! Be Your Own Heroine - similar premise to Be More Jane, but covers a wide variety of heroines throughout literature :)

Hope everyone is well during these strange times!
