A lovely Christmas present: Austenprose names Among the Janeites: A Journey Through the World of Jane Austen Fandom the top Austen-inspired non-fiction book of 2013!

Laurel Ann Nattress’ blog is a key gathering-spot for readers of Austen-related books, both fiction and non-fiction, and I was thrilled to get a wonderful review from her when Among the Janeites was published last summer.

Thanks, Laurel Ann, for this further vote of confidence!

Laurel Ann Nattress of Austenprose has given Among the Janeites the kind of review that makes an author's heart sing, calling the book "a delightfully entertaining and perceptive romp" worthy of an off-the-charts "6 out of 5 Regency stars."

Laurel Ann's blog -- which I talk about briefly in the book -- has been an important source of news and comment about Austen spinoff fiction and non-fiction for nearly six years now; it's an honor to get such an enthusiastic response from a leading member of the Janeite community. Thanks, Laurel Ann!
