Happy Launch Day! Today I am so thrilled to share with you a book that I have been so excited to share with my readers and today is the day that everyone can read I Could Write a Book.
To celebrate this launch, I asked Karen if she’d visit with my readers and she was kind enough to collaborate with me on my first author interview video chat!! Yes, a video chat with one of my favorite JAFF authors, Karen M Cox! I hope you’re as excited about this as I am.
Karen and I have attempted to give you an inside look into her new release while also providing a spoiler-free experience for our readers. I have a TON more to learn about hosting an author video chat, but I hope you’ll enjoy our chat nonetheless.
I also want to thank Karen for being such a brave pioneer with our efforts. She has worked so hard to make this the best book possible and her devotion to Jane Austen just makes me love her even more!
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts after you join us for our chat…
Please leave your comments below this post. We look forward to reading them and if you have any more questiosn for Karen, feel free to ask them below too.
Here’s the book description for I Could Write a Book:
“Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich…”
Thus began Jane Austen’s classic, a light and lively tale set in an English village two hundred years ago. Yet every era has its share of Emmas: young women trying to find themselves in their own corners of the world.
I Could Write a Book is the story of a self-proclaimed modern woman: Emma Katherine Woodhouse, a 1970s co-ed whose life is pleasant, ordered and predictable, if a bit confining.
Her friend George Knightley is a man of the world who has come home to fulfill his destiny: run his father’s thriving law practice and oversee the sprawling Donwell Farms, his family legacy in Central Kentucky horse country.
Since childhood, George’s and Emma’s lives have meshed and separated time and again. But now they’re adults with grown-up challenges and obligations. As Emma orchestrates life in quaint Highbury, George becomes less amused with her antics and struggles with a growing attraction to the young woman she’s become.
Rich with humor, poignancy and the camaraderie of life in a small, Southern town, I Could Write a Book is a coming of age romance with side helpings of self-discovery, friendship, and finding true love in the most unlikely places.
