Local writer time-travels to Jane Austen's world.
« on: April 16, 2011, 09:34:38 AM »
I'm a local writer for the Queens Gazette, I live in Astoria, and have published my first novel, The Time Baroness, as an e-book on Amazon. I'm hoping my fellow Astorians will be interested in taking a look. It's a romantic, time-travel adventure set in Jane Austen's England, and you can read an excerpt on my website, www.georginayoungellis.com. You can link to Amazon from there and get it for only .99 cents. Thanks for your support of this local artist and first time novelist!

May I say, your blog is extraordinarily sincere.

Just wanted to update this post since it's now about two months since I originally wrote it. The Time Baroness has been doing great! It's actually selling on Amazon in the hundreds and getting great reviews. Here's one of the most recent:

"I bought this book on an impulse because I was in the mood for something different. I am neither a fan of romance books or science fiction, but I love Jane Austen. The Time Baroness surprised me by being one of the most enjoyable books I've read for a while. It was a lovely escape to the past and glimpse into the future (well, pretend future!) with realistic, intelligent, interesting, and immensely charming main characters. Alternately restful and exciting, I truly hated for it to end and immediately searched to see if the author had produced other books. Alas! This is her first, but I hope it won't be her last."

    A lovely new four star review for The Time Baroness:



    Stately time travel, October 20, 2011



    By
    Heather Hiestand "author" (Washington State, USA) - [/color]See all my reviews

    [/color][/size]Amazon Verified Purchase[/font][/size]([/color]What's this?)[/font]
    [/color][/size]This review is from: [/font]The Time Baroness (The Time Mistress Series) (Kindle Edition)[/b]I thought The Time Baroness was a great read. I especially enjoyed the second half as the issues around time travel intensified. Since I mostly read time travel romances, it was refreshing to read a TT novel that didn't have to have a standard romance ending.

    Here's a great review of The Time Baroness that sparked a fun discussion about Jane Austen. http://markwilliamsinternational.com/2011/12/28/wednesday-review-the-time-baroness-by-georgina-young-ellis/  And here's the 0.99 book link on Amazon: http://amzn.to/td9Pmz


    But if you're more interested in a story set in New York City, with parts of it taking pace in Astoria, you might also enjoy The Time Heiress, a story of passion and danger set amid the abolitionist movement in pre-Civil War New York. http://amzn.to/zGveFj
