Jane Austen Inspired Books for 2009

Laurel Ann "Austenprose"
The list author says: "Can't get enough Jane Austen? Me neither.

English author Jane Austen may have died over 190 years ago, but interests in her novels and life has never been stronger. Today there are new novels and nonfiction books being written by talented and creative authors to suplant the 'need to feed' our obession with Jane Austen and her Regency life.

Featured here is a list of Austen inspired titles in release date order for 2009 from major publishers including prequels, sequels, spinoffs and other Austen-esque faire. I try to "visit them all" and review what I can on my blog Austenprose and here at Amazon.

Because of Amazon list limitations, only 40 titles can be included. My apologies to self published or other authors that are not listed.

Cheers, Laurel Ann, Austenpros
