I HAVE A BOOK COVER!!!!

What an AWESOME Day!!!

Because Valor has decided to name my Jane Austen rewrites: THE AUSTEN DIARIES--

They decided to take it one step further and make each of my books look like Journals!!! How cool is that, right? Like, totally awesome! Each one will be hardbound with little ribbon bookmarks too!


So without furthur ado.... I give you my new ROCKIN BOOK COVER!!!




Psst... Go ahead click on it, so you can see it better--you know you want to! Hehehe!


Thank you, Valor! You are the BEST!!!

Just for fun, here's what people are saying about Northanger Alibi:

"Twilight obsessed teens (and their moms) will relate to Claire's longing for the fantastical but will be surprised when they find the hero is even better than a vampire or werewolf. Hilarious, fun and romantic!"
-TwilightMOMS.com

“Stephenie Meyer meets Jane Austen in this humorous, romantic tale of a girl on a mission to find her very own Edward Cullen. I didn't want it to end!"
--Mandy Hubbard, author of Prada & Prejudice

"With so many YA fantasy books to choose from, Northanger Alibi reminds us in comical, relatable ways that mythical creatures aren't always what they're cracked up to be and real boys can be even better."
-Eve'sFanGarden.com

We often speak of Jane Austen's satiric wit, her social commentary, her invention of the domestic novel. But Jenni James, in this delicious retelling of Northanger Abbey, casts new light on Austen's genius in portraying relationships and the foibles of human nature--in this case, the projection of our literary fantasies onto our daily experience.
--M.M. Bennetts, author of May 1812.

Northanger Alibi will have you laughing out loud at Claire’s observations and dramatic responses. In a world where every teen girl is looking for her “Edward” or depressed because [she] can’t live on Pandora, Claire’s coming-of-age story is both timely and refreshing. --Amanda Washington, author of Rescuing Liberty

“Northanger Alibi by Jenni James is one of the best new young adult books of the year. Bringing together the lost beauty and drama of Jane Austen’s novels with the hip teen culture of today. Absolutely wonderful and addictive, I finished the book in just a couple of hours. Ms. James characters are endearing and the story flows beautifully off the page and into the mind of the reader.”
--Brynna Curry, author of Earth Enchanted- Elemental Magic Series Book One

Easily the most authentic new voice in YA literature, combines powerful imagination, sublime dialogue and intricate characterization to excellent effect. Austen just got a new attitude and relevance that makes this essential reading for the modern generation.
--Drew Cross, author of BiteMARKS

I couldn't wait to find out what happened next in this lighthearted and entertaining read by Jenni James. I fell in love with Claire and Tony the same way I fell in love with Edward and Bella in Twilight. Northanger Alibi has all the ingredients of a great love story.

  29. I love the cover and the fun concept with the series! I disappear with computer problems for a few weeks and miss all sorts of exciting things, I'm so happy for you right now!

    I just convinced my husband to buy me an early birthday present (well, doing it now was early and he figured that'd be OK since it won't come until well after said birthday) and pre-ordered Northanger Ailibi!

    I am so glad they let us pre-order early!

  31. Wow! Guys! Thank you so much! I really had big plans to follow this and keep up with the comments, except my hubby had bigger plans... including taking me clothes shopping for my birthday (a bit early)! WAHOO! Then dinner, then movie--so last night was full up!

    And now, my mom called to say she's coming into town. ACK! Writers should never have moms. Now I'm running around pretending like my house always looks this clean and my fridge this well stocked! LOL!

    Thank you again! You gals ROCK! And you've really made my day!

    Jenni
