Ack! I’ve been so preoccupied with revisiting an old programming project that I failed to see that My Particular Friend has been listed at austenprose.com as one of the top Jane Austen-inspired Books of 2012. It shares the mystery category with Shannon Hale’s Midnight in Austenland: A Novel. I’m doing my happy dance. The dog is barking at me and the cat wears a look of disgust.
Thanks very much to Laurel Ann Nattress and Jeffrey Ward (who reviewed MPF for austenprose). Please visit austenprose and see the whole list. I’m so happy I got to meet some of these wonderful authors last year in Atlanta.
