New on the shelves: Bad Austen!

Writing is a long process. The time it takes for even a short story to go from first draft to final draft to querying to acceptance to publication takes months. Which is why it’s important to celebrate with your fellow writers whenever a new work makes it into print. So for this post, I’d like to give it up to Riley Redgate for her first piece in Bad Austen, published this month!

Bad Austen, edited by Peter Archer and Jennifer Lawler, is a collection of short fiction which, as you might guess from the title, parodies the works of Jane Austen. So if you’re the sort who gets a kick out of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (like my housemate) this might just be up your alley. Riley’s contribution, by the way, is Black Ops Bennets.

 Bad Austen is available in paper and e-book formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. And if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to order a copy for my housemate for Christmas so he can add it to his stack of parodies.
