More About The Bath Novels of Lady A~ / TBNLA

redicated upon a real-life drama that occurred in Jane Austen’s well-documented history, and two hundred years since her first ‘child’ of the ‘sacred six’ was acquired by military publisher Thomas Egerton, comes the debut of an enigmatic companion set of seven original Regaustenian novels that freshly emulate the style of those six perfect classics. The Bath Novels of Lady A~ is so called because the collection is implicitly linked to Jane Austen's ten-year ‘unproductive’ sojourn, which started in Bath, and the modish Regency conversion of her pseudonym ‘a Lady’ to ‘Lady A~’. Though it was thought Lady A~’s pen lay fallow all through that decade-long silence, the revelation of The Bath Novels of Lady A~ (TBNLA) invites the reader to imagine exactly the opposite.
