Madison Street Publishing will be releasing “A Jane Austen Daydream”, by Scott D. Southard on April 30. It is an imaginative retelling of Jane Austen’s life–historical fiction with a twist–that may appeal to all lovers of Jane Austen. 
Madison Street Publishing is currently looking for reviewers who would like to write about the book on their website, blog, Amazon, Goodreads, or other book sharing sites. If you are interested in receiving an advance reading e-copy of the book, please contact Rosanne Spears, They have it available in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI format.

The author, Scott D. Southard, would also be happy to interact with any of the JASNA chapters for an author interview or book discussion.
Thank you for your consideration, and long live Jane Austen!
