Austen in August 2021 Invitation!!

austen in august, jane austen, austenesque books, jane austen retellings

Alright. I know this post is LONG overdue. As in, more than a year overdue. Because yes, I DID see all of the comments last year asking me where the eff was AIA. I'm sorry. I know after 10 years, you've gotten used to having an avalanche of Austen in your summer months, and last year's lack left a Jane-shaped hole in your hearts. (Mine, too.) Just... chalk another one up to C*vid, yeah?

ANYWAY, I'm going to try to resurrect Austen in August this year, try being a key word. My schedule is full, friends. My plate is heavy with stuff. It is going to be a juggle, a heavy-plate-balancing-act, and I can't guarantee that it won't come crashing down in a glorious spectacle. But I miss it, and you miss it, maybe, and so together, we're going to try.

What the Eff is AIA?
The Deets:
  1. Started in the summer of 2010 in a different month and with a different name (but still alliterative, because I'm me), Austen in August is a celebration of all things Jane Austen, featuring reviews, discussions, vlogs, giveaways, interviews and more!  [See years one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine and ten!] You can stop by any time during the month of August and get lost in Austen. It's all very austentatious. . . alright, I'll stop now.
  2. I'm going to try to match the pacing of our last 2 events, posting roughly 1-2 times per weekday. 
  3. As always, but especially this year, I want to see what YOU have to say! I welcome guest posts and outside participation. To be involved, please fill our the form below, OR EMAIL ME with the subject line Austen in August.
  4. Are you an Austenite author who wants to be involved? EMAIL ME! I'd love to have you involved! And because they were such a hit last time, I'd like to do our Mega Prize Pack(s) again this year, so if you'd like to be featured in that ---> email me!
Below you'll find a form you can fill out if you're interested in participating this year. As well, I'm keeping with last round's shakeup, and opening AIA up to other blogs. In the past, I've kept AIA strictly to my blog, so that everything is in one central location for people to consume. And while I know that works for some readers, it also limits other readers from stumbling across posts — they really have to know it's going on, or be sent through a direct link. And I want to spread the love of Austen to as many people as I can! So if you'd like to post something to your own blog or social media channel & have it included on the official schedule, please -- you guessed it -- email me.

So in the form below, you will find two options: one to be a guest poster here, and one to post on your own channel as an official participant. Please consider which works best for you — there is no pressure for either option! If you're more comfortable guest posting on my blog, or Austen content doesn't really sync up with your channel/blog's brand, no worries! I will keep plenty of slots available for guests!

If interested and able to commit to completing a post, please fill out the form below!
If you are an author, or have questions, please email me directly.

Every year, you guys blow me away with your insight and passion. I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

EDITED TO ADD: Blogger appears to be having some issues right now, and no links are currently working. Which is just fantastic. =/ So here is a direct address to the form https://forms.gle/ah8ch8LVuCNGiHZ77  or you can email me, or DM me on Twitter at @TheBookRat.
Thanks for your patience!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
