Jane Austen Lied to Me

by Jeanette Watts


GENRE:  Romantic Comedy



Dear Diary,

In three years of college, there are seven times my life seemed to suddenly turn into a Jane Austen novel; seven times my life, instead of becoming a romance, turned into a made-for-TV drama.

What am I doing wrong?



Feb 28

I’ve been thinking about my conversation with Professor Jacobson over and over.  The thing about formulas and people.  It makes a certain kind of sense, but does it lack a romantic sensibility?

Ha!  Sense and Sensibility!

This is the second time that Professor Jacobson has me thinking about S&S. Well, if I’m no Lizzie Bennett, there are worse things in life than being a Marianne Dashwood.  She had youth and beauty and high spirits.  She wasn’t good at the dating thing, either, and overlooked the better man at first.  Why was that?  Did Colonel Brandon seem unromantic at first impression?

Even though I’ve got an assignment due in Spanish, as well as the inevitable calc and chem homework, I grabbed Sense and Sensibility to take with me to read while I went to dinner. I wanted to read everything in the book about Colonel Brandon.

Anne spotted me in the dining hall while I was halfway through a tuna sandwich and a really big pile of potato chips.  “Hey, Roomie.” She slid her cafeteria tray onto the table across from me and plopped her book bag down beside it.  “You having a really bad day?”

“Um, no I don’t think so, why?” I asked.

“Usually, if you’re having a bad day, you pick up Jane Austen and read a little something before you start to study.  Since instead of sitting here doing your homework, you’re sitting here reading Jane Austen, I take it you had an exceptionally bad day today.”



Jeanette Watts has written three Jane Austen-inpsired novels, two other works of historical fiction, stage melodramas, television commercials, and humorous essays for Kindle Vella.

When she is not writing, she is either dancing, sewing, or walking around in costume at a Renaissance festival talking in a funny accent and offering to find new ladies’ maids for everyone she finds in fashionably-ripped jeans.

  1. Jeanette ~ Good morning!! Welcome back to FAB!! It is always a pleasure to have you here!! Congrats on your new book and good luck on the book tour!! :)

    1. Hi, Ally! Thank you so much for having me back!

  2. I love the cover, synopsis and excerpt, Jane Austen Lied to Me sounds like an awesome read and I have added it to my TBR. I do have a question for you today, are you able to read or write when it is noisy or do you require peace and quiet or white noise as I do?

    1. Hi, Bea! I am able to tune out some noise, but I do seek out quiet places to work. I don’t ply music while I write, I get cabins in the forest, I hang out in wineries and coffee shops, I sit on my back patio and watch people and dogs on the walking path behind the house. I spent a week at a friend’s cabin in Canada, looking at Lake Erie once! The only sound was the waves on the shore.

  5. Looks like its going to be a interesting book.

    1. Thanks, Sherry! I hope you enjoy it! When you've had a chance to read it, please consider going back and leaving a review! Just a couple of sentences with your honest opinion makes all the difference for both the author and for other readers who might be interested! - Jeanette

  6. This sounds like an excellent read!

    1. I hope you enjoy it, Debbie! Be sure to go back and leave a review! Just a couple sentences to let other readers know what you think! - Jeanette

  7. A new twist. Good!

  8. Thanks! Sometimes being too creative, the publishing industry gets stumped and doesn't know how to market the book. Since this book is about MORE than just Pride and Prejudice, I have even confused a lot of passionate Janeites. I didn't write this book for them, apparently, I wrote it for YOU! - Jeanette
