Interview with Beth Deitchman - with giveaway!


Today I welcome the lovely Beth Deitchman to my blog, and I have asked her a few questions about her books, particularly her latest release, Margaret Dashwood and the Enchanted Atlas. I am really enjoying her magical series, having loved Mary Bennet and the Bloomsbury Coven (see my review here!)

"Margaret Dashwood's father died soon after completing his life's work, an atlas he painstakingly enchanted for his youngest daughter. Margaret discovers her father's gift and embarks on an adventure that takes her far from England. Soon she and her new friend, Mrs. Bristlethwaite, a prominent member of the Devonshire Coven, learn that magical objects have begun disappearing from sites around the world. Seeking to prevent further thefts, Margaret and the Coven face unexpected dangers and a surprisingly devious enemy. Set in Jane Austen's England several years after the events of Sense and Sensibility, Margaret Dashwood and the Enchanted Atlas is the second book of the Regency Magic Series, whimsical tales of magic and manners published by Luminous Creatures Press."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Welcome Beth! Thank you so much for agreeing to this little interview with me. I really loved your story and I would love to learn a little more about you and your latest release!

 

Thank you, Sophie! I've enjoyed answering your questions.

 

1. It is evident from your stories that you are an avid Janeite and very much enjoy Jane Austen’s work. How did you first come across Jane Austen and fall in love with the regency world of dancing, carriages and courtship?

 

I came to Jane Austen a bit later than you did—in my mid-twenties when I was living in London as a post-graduate student at Queen Mary College. I was poking around a Dillon's in Bloomsbury one afternoon shortly after I'd arrived in London and found a copy of Pride and Prejudice in the sale bin. Somehow I had managed to complete two degrees in English without reading any Jane Austen (shocking, isn't it?), and I sought to right that wrong.

 

I had time before my course started, so I indulged in my first Austen. Many of my fellow residents at William Goodenough House—now called Goodenough College—studied at the Royal College of Music. Our common room boasted a beautiful grand piano that was often being used during the day. I have very fond memories of lying on my bed reading P&P while a musician practiced across the courtyard. Sometimes I could imagine that I was actually in a Jane Austen novel. Since then I've made a habit of re-reading all the novels every couple of years.

 

2. Of Ms. Austen’s six major novels, which is your favourite? What appeals to you about it? The characters, the story, the humour?

 

Oh my, that is a difficult question to answer as my allegiances shift from time to time. I adore Sense and Sensibility because I love the evolving relationship between Marianne and Elinor. The characters develop so beautifully over the course of the novel. Besides, I've just completed a book based on Sense and Sensibility, so I feel rather close to it.

 

On another day I might say Mansfield Park, again because of the characters. I especially enjoy despising Mrs. Norris!

 

 

3. In your two stories you take some of Ms. Austen’s minor characters and create a story for them. You didn't write a story based around Darcy and Lizzy, as is the majority of fan fiction. Did you want to write a story about Mary Bennet and Margaret Dashwood, the lesser explored characters, because they often get left out or fan fiction? Or had you had enough of Darcy and Lizzy and the other major characters? Or did writing a story for the minor characters intrigue you? It is very different to have a story about Margaret Dashwood especially, and I am really looking forward to reading it!

 

A few years ago I played Mary Bennet in a stage production of Pride and Prejudice and developed a real fondness for her. Just to give the poor girl a little adventure, I wrote the first draft of Mary Bennet in one sitting in a cafĂ©—it was only about five pages long and took very little time to write. When my writing partner Emily June Street and I decided to work together, I brought this tiny story to our first meeting. She gave me a lot of great feedback, and slowly the story began to evolve. As I worked on Mary's story, I began to think about other minor characters and how I could give each of them magical adventures. By the time I finished Mary Bennet and the Bloomsbury Coven, Emily and I had started our own publishing company, Luminous Creatures Press, and the Regency Magic series was born!

 

4. As well as writing stories about the secondary characters, your other unique feature to your books is that you add a magical twist. I was wary of reading Mary Bennet and the Bloomsbury Coven as I couldn't see how mixing Jane Austen and magic would work, but I really enjoyed it! How did you come up with the idea in the first place? You are a fan of magic I would assume? Perhaps a Harry Potter fan?

 

I am a huge Harry Potter fan! I've read the series so many times that I count the characters as old friends.

 

When I sat down to write the little Mary Bennet story, I had a vague idea that there would be something fantastical happening to Mary, though I didn't necessarily plan the magic as it is in the final draft. If I remember correctly, I had something along the lines of Narnia in mind, but that's not the way the writing took me.

 

5. What is your opinion of modern variations of Ms. Austen’s work such as Clueless, or the Bollywood Pride and Prejudice or the recent YouTube series The Lizzy Bennet Diaries, or even paranormal variations such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? I was surprised but pleased that your story was kept in the same era as Jane Austen's own stories, despite the addition of the magic element, which might be seen as more appropriate or to be associated with modern tales.

 

I welcome modern adaptations of classics—before I started writing fiction I wrote academic papers, an MPhil thesis, and a PhD dissertation about Shakespeare films, including Ten Things I Hate About You, which is based on Taming of the Shrew. The Baz Luhrmann Romeo + Juliet is one of my favorite Shakespeare films. Shakespeare and Austen wrote stories about people without hiding their flaws. I think that is why they still hold such appeal to us now.

 

As for the adaptations themselves, I adore Clueless and have seen it an embarrassing number of times. I even worked it into my MPhil thesis (remember the conversation Cher has about Hamlet and Mel Gibson?). Amy Heckerling did a wonderful job adapting Emma to a teen flick set in Beverly Hills. I haven't seen the Bollywood Pride and Prejudice, but it sounds like it would be a lot of fun.

 

6. Mr Darcy has to be one of the most famous heroes in all of literature. However, I very much enjoyed the hero you created in Mary Bennet and the Bloomsbury Coven. How did you go about writing a hero worthy of a Bennet daughter? Was it fun to create a new character?

 

That is a great question! I'm not sure how clearly I can answer it without giving away too much, not about my mysterious writing process, but about key plot details. I felt that in order for it to be a successful Austen sequel there had to be some romance, and I wanted to give Mary a little love—her life is definitely lacking in that area! I also wanted the hero to be much nicer than Mr. Collins, whom many people think Mary should have married. I did enjoy writing a hero worthy of a Bennet daughter!

 

 

7. As well as the hero being a new character that you created, how did you find creating the many other new characters you have in your story, and having them interact with characters we already know from Ms. Austen's own stories?

 

Creating new characters is one of my favorite parts of writing the Regency Magic series. At the risk of sounding too mystical, I have to say that the characters reveal themselves to me as I go along. I very rarely have a plan, although I did base Mrs. Bristlethwaite from Margaret Dashwood and the Enchanted Atlas loosely on someone I know—Tina Packer, an English actor who founded Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, Massachusetts. I spent a month there a few years ago, so got to know her a little. She's a marvelous actor with a deliciously contagious chuckle. But even Mrs. Bristlethwaite didn't conform to my expectations of her. I have a special fondness for another character in Margaret's book called Mr. James.

 

In Mary Bennet and the Bloomsbury Coven, Mr. Bennet gave me a little surprise—I took a liberty that I hope Miss Austen wouldn't have minded. I based Mr. Hartbustle on a friend of mine, although only in appearance.That character also surprised me as the story unfolded.

 

Because people know Miss Austen's characters so well, I strive to make their interactions with the new characters as honest as possible. Luckily, Miss Austen's characters are so beautifully drawn that I can easily imagine how they would react to my characters.

 

8. As I have already said, I really enjoyed Mary Bennet and am looking forward to reading your latest release. Can you tell us more about it? Which character have you enjoyed writing about more, Mary or Margaret?

 

The new book takes place several years after Sense and Sensibility—Margaret is eighteen and a fairly accomplished sorceress. She inherits the Enchanted Atlas from her father—again, I took a little liberty with Miss Austen's character by making Henry Dashwood an accomplished sorcerer who trained his daughter until his death. Margaret's magical adventure begins after she finds the atlas and meets Mrs. Bristlethwaite, a friend of her father's and a prominent member of the Devonshire Coven. Together they learn about magical items disappearing from sites around the world. With the Devonshire Coven, Margaret embarks on a quest to stop the thefts and discover the culprit. Naturally she also finds a little love.

 

As for which character I enjoyed writing more—hmmm, that's another difficult question! I loved writing Mary because I got to give her a voice and an explanation for her faults. Margaret was a lot of fun because she's so romantic and earnest. But I haven't really answered your question; to be honest I'm not sure I could pick between them.

 

9. I will wrap up the questions now, but one final thing; do you have some other stories in the works? Are you going to continue with your magical themed Austen books? You must excuse my impatience, for I realise that your second story has only just been released, but I had to ask!   

I do have other stories in the works! I just started drafting a new novel about ballet dancers tentatively called Anna's Piece. Given the way my writing process works, I imagine I'll be done with the first draft by early February, but then it will sit for at least six months before I can come back to it. That's when I'm planning to start the first draft of Regency Magic Book Three: Susan Price and the Staff of Adalet. I'm basing this one on Mansfield Park—Susan being Fanny Price's younger sister who eventually comes to live at Mansfield Park. Right now I have only vague ideas about Susan's adventure, but I imagine I'll have a lot of fun discovering what it is!

Blog Tour: Jane Austen's First Love by Syrie James



Today I welcome the lovely Syrie James to my blog! I have asked her a few questions about her new release, Jane Austen's First Love!
 
 
 
 
 
 
"In the summer of 1791, fifteen-year-old Miss Jane Austen is determined to accomplish three things: to do something useful, write something worthy, and fall madly in love. While visiting at Goodnestone Park in Kent for a month of festivities in honor of her brother's engagement to Miss Elizabeth Bridges, Jane meets the boy-next-door—the wealthy, worldly, and devilishly handsome Edward Taylor, heir to Bifrons Park, and hopefully her heart! Like many of Jane’s future heroes and heroines, she soon realizes that there are obstacles—social, financial, and otherwise—blocking her path to love and marriage, one of them personified by her beautiful and sweet tempered rival, Charlotte Payler.
 
Unsure of her own budding romance, but confident in her powers of observation, Jane distracts herself by attempting to maneuver the affections of three other young couples. But when her well-intentioned matchmaking efforts turn into blundering misalliance, Jane must choose between following her own happily-ever-after, or repairing those relationships which, based on erroneous first impressions, she has misaligned."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Welcome Syrie!
 
 
Hi! I’m so happy to be here today at Laughing with Lizzie. I’m ready for questions, so fire away!

 

 

 

1. Okay, a boring but very important question! How did you first come across Jane Austen and fall in love with the Regency world of dancing, carriages, and courtship?

 

Funny you should ask! Actually, I was a bit of a late-bloomer when it comes to Austen. I’ve heard stories from women who said they first became entranced by Austen when they were eleven or twelve years old, when their Austen-loving mother or aunt or grandmother introduced them to Austen’s books, which they would read and discuss together. That would be such a lovely way to discover Austen! However, it didn’t happen that way for me. (My parents did encourage me to read from an early age, starting with all the classics of children’s literature, and I became a total bookworm—for life.)

As reading and writing were my two greatest passions, I majored in English in college—and it was there, in a British literature course, that I was first introduced to Jane Austen. I have no memory of that class now, but we must have read Pride and Prejudice and Emma, and I must have loved them, because out of all the books I was required to purchase in college, those are among the few that I kept all these years.

Fast forward to 1995-96, when a tidal wave of Jane Austen movies came out. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY starring and adapted by Emma Thompson, and the A&E mini-series PRIDE AND PREJUDICE starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, became two of my all-time favorites. I fell madly in love with Austen, the world she lived in and created, and All Things Regency. I wanted to live in a Jane Austen movie! I read—or re-read—all the novels. I read her juvenilia, her biographies, and her letters. I was devastated that there were only six novels and no Austen memoirs. So I decided to write them myself. J  I started with The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen and followed with The Missing Manuscript of Jane Austen and Jane Austen’s First Love.

 
 

2. Of Ms. Austen’s six major novels, which is your favourite? What appeals to you about her work and her writing? The characters, the story, the humour?

 

I love all of Austen’s novels, but I suppose Pride and Prejudice is my favorite—I’ve certainly re-read it more often than the others. It’s the book I always pick up when I need my “Austen fix.” I love P&P because of its brilliant storyline, the way it grabs you from page one and doesn’t let go. The characters are so beautifully drawn. I admire Austen’s skill in creating Elizabeth’s and Darcy’s character arcs as they overcome their pride and prejudice (ha!) and go from initial dislike to falling in love. That’s the heart of the story, and it’s wonderful. There’s good reason why that plotline continues to be imitated over and over!

I love Jane Austen’s novels for all the reasons you mention. Even though she wrote over two hundred years ago, her work is timeless. Her characters are still familiar and feel very real, because they deal with many of the same kinds of personal, social, and economic problems that we face today. We identify with her heroes and heroines because they all have flaws (well, maybe not Anne Elliot and Fanny Price!) and they have to own up to their mistakes and correct them before they are rewarded with a happy ending. Austen subtly weaves in a lesson in all of her novels, and I love that. Plus, Austen’s wit and humour are fabulous! So much of her dialogue is infused with biting wit, and her fools are fun to laugh at. All I have to do is think about Mr. Collins, and I can’t help but smile!

 

3. Where did your inspiration come from for this book, to look into the life of Jane Austen, rather than perhaps write a book based around her novels and characters?

 

When my obsession with Jane Austen began, I had never heard of Jane Austen fan fiction. Rather than feeling compelled to write a continuation of her stories and characters, I was more intrigued by the woman behind the novels. I read stacks of biographies and Jane’s preserved correspondence, seeking to understand the author herself.

 

It’s well known that Jane Austen never married. But how, I wondered, could she have written with such insight about relationships and matters of the heart, if she hadn’t experienced those emotions first hand? I believe that Jane Austen must have had a love affair (or two!) of her own. My first Austen novel, The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, fulfilled my need to give the mature Jane Austen a romance. I interwove a dashing, fictional gentleman—a real kindred spirit—with the facts of Austen’s life, hoping to make it hard to discern where fact ended and fiction began.

 

But what of young Jane? Who was her first love? The inspiration for my new novel began to germinate when I was re-reading Jane’s preserved correspondence. I was struck by three sweet and tender references she made to Edward Taylor, who she met as a teenager while visiting her brother Edward Austen in Kent. We know so little about Jane’s romantic life, yet here was a solid clue, in her own words, about a young man with whom she was clearly besotted! And he was a real person! I was stunned that no one had ever written about him. So I wrote the book I wanted to read: the story of Jane Austen’s First Love. 

 

 

 

4. How did you go about discovering and researching information about this 'shadowy suitor' so that you could write this book?

 

Austen biographers only briefly mention Edward Taylor as Jane’s first crush, no doubt because there was very little information about him. I spent many months surfing the web, searching for clues. Thankfully Edward Taylor was a member of the landed gentry, so I was able to find nuggets of information about him: dates of birth, marriage, and death; time served in the military and in Parliament; the background of his parents, basic facts about his eight siblings, his ancestors, and his family estate. But I was determined to know more. I wanted to understand who Edward Taylor was as a young man, when Jane Austen met him.

 

I kept combing through obscure files on the internet. To my great excitement, I came upon The Taylor Papers, the memoirs and letters of Edward’s brother, Lieutenant General Sir Herbert Taylor. These memoirs bring Edward Taylor out of the shadows, revealing him to be a member of an extraordinary, highly accomplished family who had an unusual upbringing. I learned so much from this book! It helped me understand who Edward Taylor was, and why Jane cared for him so deeply.I was excited to bring him and the teenage Jane to life in my novel.

 

Bifrons Park
 

 

5. I am very much looking forward to reading this story. What are a few of the most interesting or shocking or surprising things you discovered while researching and writing this book?

 

I was surprised to learn that Edward Taylor served in the military. That was an unusual choice for an eldest son and heir to the family estate. But after reading his brother Herbert’s memoirs, I understood what motivated that yearning—and I made it an integral part of Edward Taylor’s character in my novel.

 

I was surprised to discover that the Taylor family left their ancestral home, Bifrons Park, and removed to the continent for eleven years, where all eight children were raised and educated. I was amazed to learn that Edward Taylor and his siblings were fluent in four or five languages, learned to draw from Raffaelle’s frescoes at the Vatican, and all played a musical instrument so proficiently that they gave concerts wherever they lived or visited across Europe. I was astonished to learn that the Taylors were close friends with royalty, government leaders, and aristocrats at the highest echelons of society. What an extraordinary life the young Edward Taylor had led by the time he returned to England and met Jane Austen! No wonder she fell madly in love with him!

A Regency House Party

Today I welcome the lovely Sophia and Ellen to my blog to tell us about a very special event which is happening in May!


Regency House Party

Have you ever dreamed of living a Regency fantasy? Travelling back in time to live on a country estate in 1815 with all the romance and adventure it may involve. While you are enjoying life at the mansion, just over the Channel less than 100 miles away a month later Waterloo will happen. You are living under the threat of French soldiers and pirates fighting for Napoleon landing on your beach that you can almost see from the manor.
 
 

 
A unique event in Regency Society is to take place this coming spring!

Not in the last decade and seldom before then have Regency Guests all lived together under the same roof for an extended period of time, as they will do at The Jane Austen Society of Europe's event, May 8 to 12th 2015.
 
The Regency Era is a great favourite amongst living history enthusiasts, re-enactors, bookworms and all. An age of extremes from great opulence to terrible poverty. An age of; beauty, war, scandal, political turmoil over the King and the beginning of the industrial revolution. All this brought to life for us when we learn of the superstars of the age; The Prince Regent, Wellington, Jane Austen, Napoleon, Beau Brummell, waltzing and scribing through it, leaving us with a vivid picture of how we were in Great Britain at the start of the 1800's.
 
Spend a week, like Elizabeth Bennet or Mr. Tilney, on the country estate of ‘Mount Amelia’. Walk in the lovely surrounding gardens, dance in the ball room, and maybe fall in love or take a visit to Kings Lynn to enjoy lunch.
 

The Regency House Party is to make modern ladies and gentlemen live and act for a period of four days as their counterparts did in 1815. Not only are the guests supposed to live as it is the year of 1815 but they also have to conduct themselves as to their stories, the guests will have an alternative identity during the house party.  Guests of different nationalities from the great and independent America to the old but traditional sea country of Denmark. For the first time the Danish Jane Austen Society will participate in the event.
 
As the head of the Danish society, and a young lady, I myself am looking forward to seeing the Norfolk County, taking long strolls in the grounds of Mount Amelia and enjoy the early spring, but I am also looking forward to dancing at the Regency ball during my stay in Kings Lynn. Mostly I am looking forward to getting to know the other guests of the house party.
 
Since Ellen and Chris, heads of the Jane Austen Society Europe, invited the Danish society I have been involved in the planning. Giving a helping hand with the publicity.   I hope that young people from around the world will participate in future events. I am furthermore to help and assist during the event, in Norfolk.
 
I will now leave you lovely readers in the capable hands of Ellen.

 



Thanks Sophia 

 
From a young age I have been enchanted by romantic novels being old enough to remember the likes of David Rintoul playing Mr Darcy! Then in 2005 watched the tv-serial about a house party in Herefordshire filmed for Channel 4 in which a whole country estate went back to live in the 1800s .
 
Since 2009 Christopher and I have thoroughly enjoyed organising historical re-enactments, meeting so many new friends from all walks of life and many countries. This gave us the idea of forming the Jane Austen Society of Europe to enable communication of all fans and followers of Miss Austen and her life and the times in which she lived and the society she portrayed.
 
 The House Party runs between May 8 to 12th 2015 in an unspoilt corner of north Norfolk where the town of Kings Lynn sits proudly guarding the estates of the north coast and the homes of many genteel and royal landowners in an area of about 75 miles.
 

We aim to provide and cater for differing interests whether you are a regency lady who loves needlework or an aspiring swordsman.
 
 
Part of the time will be devoted to dancing, which was the "pop" cult activity in 1815 .Every young person wanted to learn the correct way to dance - it was the only chance to meet and socialize with the opposite sex . In modern times, Regency re-enactors meet with a Costume Ball taking centre stage and on May 10th ours will take place in Kings Lynn Town Assembly Halls with a Careme Dinner. Many such balls were held 200 years ago but we believe ours to be the first there for centuries.
 
 
A recreation of the 1994 "EMMA" production's Donwell Soiree will take place on Saturday May9th when local Norfolk cuisine will be provided in a rustic 3 course Dinner.
 
All are welcome to attend as a resident guest or to enjoy attending any of the events whether it’s the House activities or the Costume Ball or Donwell Soiree.
 
We can give advice and assistance to both seasoned and new prospective attendee’s
 
This Regency House Party Experience will give different impressions and memories to every individual.
 
The organisers aim to give everyone of their guests an enjoyably special time giving perspective on the past and also the future.

I really wish I could attend this! Hopefully it won't be a one of thing and I can make it one year! It sounds like a lot of fun!
