Happy first birthday to Among the Janeites
By Deborah Yaffe, Aug 4 2014 01:00PM
A year ago this coming Wednesday, my book Among the Janeites: A Journey Through the World of Jane Austen Fandom was published.
Barring a surprise movie sale (Angelina Jolie can play me, natch), the book is never going to make me rich, but it’s been delightful to see – through dozens of reviews, guest posts and incidental mentions – that the work has connected with a community of readers around the world and across the Internet.
I’m grateful to everyone who’s bought, read, blogged or shared. Feel free to keep right on doing all that! And if you’re interested in having me speak to your organization, visit your book group, or just answer your nagging question about The Dress, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
