Jane Austen, Rejected Novelist?

A fascinating blog piece over at Publisher's Weekly by Bethanne Patrick. The entry is about a recent experiment someone conducted submitting thinly disguised opening chapters of Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, and Persuasion to 18 publishers.

The results are eye-opening, and encouraging if you're a writer. Check out the full blog entry here.

For those wondering, the cover at left is a novel about the life of Jane Austen by Nancy Moser. It's to be published by Bethany House this fall.
