Waiting on Wednesday: Bespelling Jane Austen

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event I am joining, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read selection is:
Bespelling Jane Austen
Releases October 1, 2010

Bespelling Jane Austen includes four novellas that each take an Austen novel and turn it into a paranormal story. The book has its own website here

“Almost Persuaded” by Mary Balogh
In this Regency tale of Robert and Jane, New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Mary Balogh brings together former lovers who have seen beyond the veil of forgetfulness to their past mistakes and are determined to be together in this life and forever.
“Northanger Castle” by Colleen Gleason
Apart of her Gardella Vampire Chronicles… her tongue-in-cheek version of a 19th century Gothic novel, Colleen gives a little glimpse of life with the Gardellas after Victoria in her story “Northanger Castle,” where inquisitive readers will find out what happened to George Starcasset…and the gender of Victoria’s child.
“Blood and Prejudice” by Susan Krinard
Set in the business world of contemporary New York City, Liz Bennett joins Mr. Darcy in his hunt for a vampire cure in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Susan Krinard's version of the classic story.
"Little to Hex Her” by Janet Mullany
