Hello!! Happy New Year from Tabby Cow (i.e. Cass and Ada)!
2019 was an incredible year for us, with both The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen and it’s sequel, The Unexpected Past of Miss Jane Austen, being published by Canelo Escape. Not without note, we also wrote said sequel in 2019 and got to spend an incredible week IRL together in Bath for the Jane Austen Festival which… oh, have I not mentioned recently – we actually got to be part of the program?
We haven’t actually been in a cave, we’ve been hard at work writing… well, Cass has been writing (her novel, The Cottage in a Cornish Cove, is due out on 11th February, pre-order it here!).
Ada has been deep in thought piecing together her fictional murder plot and avoiding writing by watching a lot of The Mandalorian on Disney +. There’s also the outline for the third book in our Jane Austen time-travel series in my tablet files, and Cass and I are excited to get back to these characters that we’ve grown to love so much.
We’re also about to go on a bear hunt… no, wait! A blog tour! The lovely Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources has arranged a ten-day tour for us with all the lovely bloggers on the banner below from January 25 through February 3!
Otherwise, we’d just like to say that we so appreciate the support of our loyal fans. Every “like” and “retweet” and “share” warms our hearts and makes us a little bit more guilty that we keep ending our novels with cliff-hangers. You must admit, they are mild cliff-hangers… that’s not as bad, surely?
Ada (and Cass)
P.S. In unrelated to writing news, but maybe related to this post news, Ada’s track pad on her laptop is possessed and can no longer be trusted. Okay actually, a little bit of Googling has suggested that her laptop track pad has become overly sensitive with age (#relatable). But what that means is that she has to know where the cursor is at all times, because if it is allowed to hover over anything clickable: a ‘buy now’ button, a different web page, an ad, any link what so ever, then it will actually double tap on its own. Yes, she was going to buy those paper towels on Amazon, but she doesn’t appreciate the track pad deciding on the when. She also cannot seem to log in to the blog as an owner, and therefore she is sending this to Cass to post for her 😉
P.P.S. We had two fab reviews come through this past week for The Unexpected Past of Miss Jane Austen (the second book in the series), and you can read them at the following links. Thanks so much to Anna at Diary of an Eccentric and Meredith at Austenesque Reviews for taking the time to read and review!

Last year was great for you gals and it looks like you’re busy on more good stuff to come. Bummer about that errant track pad, Ada!

I think she’s making it up, Sophia Rose. She really did want those towels off Amazon! 😉
I love your novels! Won’t it be great to have a movie based on them? Hope my dream comes true… Thank you for your writing art and… mild cliff hangers 😉

We can but dream, but thank you for saying that! 😀

We always love your reactions and feedback, Hazel! There is a third book, and we do have the outline plot, but we can’t say when it will be ready as we’re both working on other projects right now. Rose, Jane and co will be back, though, and we’re looking forward to continuing their adventures!
Looking forward to The Unexpected Past rather a lot. I won an Amazon gift card from a work-related survey recently and it should arrive any day now, so guess where some of it is going to get spent? I’ll be reading it back-to-back after rereading Charm.
Congrats on a great year and good luck with the projects you’re both working on. Heading off shortly to read your opening chapters of the Cornish series on your own blog, Cass.
Hi Anji, I also reread the first one just before the second one came out. Had to be done!
We hope you enjoy the sequel, Anji. Quite a few people seem to have re-read Charm first, which is a good idea. Even if only the last chapter… it will help! 😀
Hope you enjoy the Cornwall taster too. Very nervous about it, as it’s a new direction for me!
