I’m having a lovely time at the Jane Austen Festival catching up with friends Juliet Archer and Abigail Reynolds and watching all the fun!
Yesterday I went to watch the costumed Promenade which assembled in Queen Square and attended the Festival Fayre – everyone was very gracious about letting me photograph them! I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Tomorrow, as part of my blog tour for Searching For Captain Wentworth I shall be Laura Gerold’s guest on Laura’s Reviews– I hope you can join me!

The Pump Room, Bath

Today I am the guest of Laura Hartness on the Calico Critic Blog. There’s an exclusive extract from Searching for Captain Wentworth and I’m talking about Time Travel and the books I loved as a child. I’d love to know which were your favourites – please leave a comment on her blog!

Yesterday, I was Maria Grazia’s guest and she interviewed me for My Jane Austen Book Club. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning a signed paperback copy of Searching for Captain Wentworth do leave a comment!

The day before I was Laurel Ann Nattress’ guest on Austenprose where I shared an exclusive ‘audio’ excerpt from my new novel.

I’ve also been to visit Vic Sanborn on Jane Austen’s World – she celebrated 500,000 hits on her blog with a giveaway-competition now closed.

Tomorrow, I shall be visiting Nancy Kelley – I hope you can join me!

I’m having a lovely and very busy day!

The white gate in Sydney Gardens

Laurel Ann Nattress invited me to guestblog on her wonderful Austenprose blog and I really wanted to do something a little different this time. I discovered Soundcloud the other day and it means you can record excerpts or readings – whole books for that matter – and then share them. The technology is simple – I even managed to record it on my phone – I’m not a great fan of listening to myself, I must admit, but I hope you enjoy my efforts! I’ve always enjoyed reading aloud. Having a younger sister and brother meant I did a lot of it in my youth and then I had three children who loved listening to endless books and stories. I was always volunteering for reading in Assembly at school – it’s something I love doing so I hope you get a chance to listen. I’m reading from my new book, Searching for Captain Wentworth!

The Jane Austen Centre

I’ve written a new article for the Jane Austen Centre websiteDiscovering Bath with Jane Odiwe.
This was a challenge because I could write a book about what I love about Bath and couldn’t talk about everything but do pop over there and have a look.

I went to the Roman Baths and Pump Rooms today – I hope you enjoy some of my photos!

Please join me tomorrow when I’ll be visiting Maria Grazia on her lovely blog My Jane Austen Book Club – hope to see you there!
