Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford

I HAD to read this book. I mean, Jane Austin as a vampire? Just what the heck would or could you do with a storyline like that?

Mr. Ford managed to write a story that kept me sitting in my chair until I finished it, I can tell you that.

It's 200 years after Jane's death, and she's the owner of Flyleaf Books in a sleepy college town. She sells a lot of her books in the store, but she can't admit she's the author. And she has another book she'd like to publish, but it's been rejected 116 times and it still hasn't been accepted.

And now a dark man from her past shows in town while she's being pursued by two modern suitors - what more could go wrong?

I found it fun to read and enjoyed the book knowledge he shares about Jane Austen's works and all the other varieties that been written in the years since.

If you'd like my copy of the ARC that Random House Publishing sent me, leave me a comment here on the blog and email me at info @ (take the spaces out) and give me your name and address and tell me why you'd like to read it. I'll pick a winner in about a week.
