How is it October already!!!ย I know, October is more than half-over and I feel as though I started running and suddenly stopped to discover a month had passed. It seems yesterday as I took my almost daily drive to swimming, I would watch the hedgerows along the stretch of road slowly turn from brown to green. As I passed them this weekend and started into town, I was struck by the yellow and brown of the leaves as they fell in the wind and drizzly rain. Autumn has certainly arrived.

I have a lot planned for the next month or so. Here’s just the highlights. ๐Ÿ™‚

I fully plan to continue Expat’s Travel Guide with my post on Tintagel. It’s partially written and just waiting. I’ll hopefully finish that this week and get it posted. Tintagel was the last place we visited on our trip to Devon and Cornwall, so after, comes my September trip to Bath for the Jane Austen Festival. I may have to split that one into more than one post since my roomie for the weekend, Cassandra Grafton, and I solemnly swore to be up to no good that weekend. I believe we exceeded our expectations on the matter ๐Ÿ˜‰

Coming up this month and into November (November?! Meep!), I have the Halloween Day post at Austen Variations. I am planning another instalment of the 50 Shades of Jane…? silliness I’ve been writing this year, so I hope you’ll stop by for a read.

On November 11, I’m posting an excerpt from Particular Intentions at Austen Variations for Netherfield in November. If you haven’t read Particular Intentions and would like a preview beyond what is offered on Amazon, come on by for a look-see.

One November 15, I have a guest post at A Covent Garden Gilflurt’s Guide to Life. I have several ideas, but I desperately need to choose one and soon for this!

As for writing not of the blog variety, I’m playing around with a sequel to Particular Intentions from Georgiana’s point of view. It is a bit slow going at the moment, but I have five chapters completed. I have a feeling if I can get past this ball, it might start flowing a bit faster… I hope!

    Glad to see you are still going strong. Good luck with the writing. I can’t wait for another installment of 50 shades of Jane in particular as i love that series. I also wonder what you and Cass really got up to – I hope you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜Š


    1. Cass and I always are up to no good. If you look for us at a ball, we’re on the side giggling. We fancy ourselves Jane and Cassandra in that circumstance, but we don’t claim ourselves a particular Austen ๐Ÿ˜‰

    We look forward to whatever you want to share with us. I love the Expat’s guide, as I did the author roasts. Did I say roasts? I meant… you know what I mean! I’m curious as to what ball Georgiana is at.


    1. We’ll have to see how it all pans out. The ball is the same one where D&E were reunited in Particular Intentions, but four years later. ๐Ÿ™‚

    How busy you have been. Time gets away from us all.


    1. One day I’ll learn to say no. LOL! Lately, I’ve had new things I want to do as well, so it all just adds up! Thanks deborahanne2!

    Sounds like a lot of busyness. Good luck with it all. Looking forward to the reading of new stories or tidbits. Thanks for sharing.


    1. I’m working on all of it whenever I can! Thanks, Sheila!
