Message:I think that if I were you, Aoibheann, I would keep this poem to use in your story(I think it might be best to leave out the last bit - just emphasise how miserable the girl is). It could be part of the reformation of Rainbow - perhaps she finds a scruffy piece of paper on the floor - or sees it pinned up on the wall. Suddenly she sees the other side of bullying - she begins to see the point of view of the victim ...

Message:Cora: oh...i was looking foward to reading it...
mabye you could try a different publishers?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Aoibheann: The trouble is that the publishers who published 'Gorgeous' have given up on publishing for young people, and English publishers are not interested in something set in Ireland, so, for the moment, I've put 'Twice as Gorgeous' on the shelf (literally as well as figuratively).
Sarah: Yes, there is a lot of typing even after you get an idea - anything between 30,000 and 90,000 words in my case.
Sarah Patton: Thanks...
I'm aiming at the young teens, but I hope it will be interesting, also, for Jane Austen fans who want to find out about her teen years. I've done a lot of research.

Message:Thanks, Sarah, that's very helpful!
What I hope to do is to have the fun, romance and wit of Jane Austen but in an accessible, easy-read form. Don't know whether I'll succeed or not!

Message:I think Kristine is right most of my friends haven't read the books either. But I say that is because they are what my friends classify "old".I am interested in your book idea it sounds great!!Most of my friends have heard of Jane Austen as a classical author but not actually looked into her books and stories at all.

Message:Kristine: Many thanks for this - it fits in with what I guessed, but it's so useful to have it verified by your market research.

Name: Kristine
Message:Cora: I asked around at school for the information you asked for. Although a lot of people have heard of her, not many people at all have read any of the books. A few of them have seen "Becoming Jane" and the majority have seen the 2005 film adaptation of "Pride & Prejudice", starring Keira Knightley. I think that the main reason people don't read them is because a lot of teenagers don't read a lot, and Jane Austen's books are difficult enough to read when you don't like reading in the first place. The plotlines are something they'd like, but it's the language and the whole formal-looking image that surrounds Jane Austen's novels that turns them off them.

Message:Sarah: Thanks for the recommendations!

I'm working on a new book at the moment. It's called 'I was Jane Austen's Best Friend' and it's written in a diary form. It starts off with the two girls at a terrible boarding school and Jane gets very ill and the owner of the school refuses to send for her mother.
I suppose it is aimed at the young teenager.
Have you ever seen any of th Jane Austen films, or heard of any of the books?

Message:Dear Kristine,
Please don't worry - study is of the first importance now. I know that you will finish some time.
Now, I have a favour to ask you. Have you or any of your friends in school ever read any of the 6 Jane Austen books?
If not, would any of you want to read one?
Have you, or any of your friends, seen any of the films of the books, such as Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, or Emma. Or any film about Jane Austen, such as 'Becoming Jane'?
I'm really interested to know these facts as I am doing a book about Jane Austen when she was about your age.
Thanks, Kristine.
