So excited to see my ad for Jane Austen’s Sweethearts in print in the November issue of Jane Austen's Regency World magazine! Double excitement as, in the section on Austen gifts, there is an article about my game called ‘Dealing a good hand in love’. I always enjoy reading the bi-monthly magazine and this issue was no exception with interesting articles like Shop till you drop by Sue Wilkes about fashionable shopping in Jane Austen’s times. Sue Wilkes has an interesting blog “daily life in the world which Jane Austen and her friends knew.” Her book A Visitor’s Guide to Jane Austen’s England was launched in October this year. Another favourite article was Damp in the house by Diana White, discussing the cause of the most common illnesses of the time.
When in Bath, I had a delightful chat with Tim Bullamore and Alison Bentley from Regency World magazine at the tearooms in the Jane Austen Centre. As the publisher of Regency World magazine, Tim was interested in my game and we had a good discussion about making my game more accessible for the UK audience. My fourth visit to this city was just as enjoyable as my first as I never tire of Bath, unlike Jane Austen!
