It’s Publication Day for The Unexpected Past of Miss Jane Austen!!

Hello! It is a very EXPECTED day for Cass and I and… ok, that was bad. I know.

The Unexpected Past of Miss Jane Austen (SEQUEL to The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen) is officially released (digitally by Canelo Escape and in paperback by good ole’ Tabby Cow Press and you can purchase it in either format here!)

Did we mention that? We have a paperback edition too, and here’s the gorgeous cover:

I know Cass and I have already talked about the fun we have co-writing, but I just want to say that I actually had more fun writing this book than the first. Some of that has to do with the success of the first, I’m sure, but I know we’re both very excited to see if fans of the first enjoy the second as much as we hope you do.

Not sure what it’s about? You can read the full blurb here, but essentially, the story begins barely ten minutes after the end of the first book – for Rose, that is. For Jane, it’s ten years since they last met! Our time-travelling author has come forward from 1813, and as she is no longer living in Bath but in Chawton in Hampshire, much of the story takes place there. Cue lots of research from us both on our recent visit!

This is us at Chawton Cottage and in Jane and Cassandra’s bedroom in Chawton, both of which play a part in The Unexpected Past of Miss Jane Austen, as does Chawton House.

We hope you’ll join us in following Jane and Rose on their latest adventure! As for today, celebrate with us! Raise a glass to welcome the new arrival, whether it be wine or whiskey, chocolate milk or coffee!

Show us a picture of you joining us in a toast in the comments. Cass and I may be eight hours apart today, but we”ll post our own pictures in the comments when each of us gets to have a drink. Cheers!

Rose Wallace’s world revolves around all things Austen, and with the annual festival in Bath – and the arrival of dishy archaeologist, Dr Aiden Trevellyan– just around the corner, all is well with the world…

But then a mysterious woman who bears more than a passing resemblance to the great author moves in upstairs, and things take a disastrous turn. Rose’s new neighbour is Jane Austen, whose time travel adventure has been sabotaged by a mischievous dog, trapping her in the twenty-first century.

Rose’s life is instantly changed – new home, new job, new friends – but she’s the only one who seems to have noticed! To right the world around her, she will have to do whatever it takes to help Jane get back home to write Rose’s beloved novels. Because a world without Mr Darcy? It’s not worth living in!

The Unexpected Past of Miss Jane Austen – Book Two of The Austen Adventures Series

We’re excited to formally reveal the cover for the upcoming sequel to The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen!  Billed as ‘a page-turning story of adventure, friendship and family’, it’s now up for pre-order here.
It’s Isn’t it pretty? And here’s the cover blurb:

Rose Wallace thought her time-travelling adventures were over. Jane Austen is about to prove her wrong.

After becoming trapped in present-day Bath due to a mishap with her time-travelling charm, Jane Austen is safe and sound back in the 1800s thanks to Rose’s help. Now, Rose is ready to focus on her fledgling romance with dreamy Dr Aiden Trevellyan.

But when Jane reappears in the present, it looks like Rose and Aiden have no choice but to follow her back to 1813…

Staying in the Austen household, Rose and Aiden are introduced to a number of interesting figures from the past, including Jane’s eccentric – and surprisingly modern – neighbour. Suddenly Rose’s life is in need of a re-write as she discovers some unexpected ties to Jane Austen’s world and her past.

The sequel to The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen will be released on 7th November 2019.
