Message:Actually, Kylee,I didn't realize, until I looked at it just now, that you have to be registered on it in order to send messages -and you have to be aged thirteen in order to register - you certainly should have your parents' permission.
I think it's all too complicated. Don't worry about it. I'll tell them what you and others have said. I'll be meeting my editor in London in a couple of days time so that will be a good opportunity.

I'll let you know how i get on. It would be fun to write another Jane Austen book.

Message:Okay! Anything to help!! Where in MYKINDABOOK can I say this to your publisher?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:I would say that the best thing to do would be to put a simple question:
Is Cora Harrison going to write a third Jane Austen book - I (and my friends) would love to read it if she does.


That would be the sort of thing that they would take notice of - it would be brilliant if you would do this, because it's difficult for an author - I can say things like - "well, hundreds of kids have contacted me to say that they would like a third Jane Austen book" - but then they would just think that I was just think that I was inventing it.

Message:Hello again! Just wondering, should I comment about a third Jane book on the page about you on MYKINDABOOK? Or is there anotherway to contact Macmillan?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Twp people with one question!
Thanks for your messages Jennifer and Kylee - I'm delighted you liked the two Jane Austen book and would love to write a third if my publisher, Macmillan would agree. i suppose that what I need is all of those people who write to me, to email Macmillan on MYKINDABOOK and ask about a third book in order to convince them.
In the meantime you could read Debutantes and see whether you like that, also.

Message:Hi!
I really loved "I was Jane Austen's Best Friend" and was really excited to find out you had a second book! I read "Jane Austen Stole my Boyfriend" right away and still am in love with it! So here's my question: Are you planing on writing a third Jane Austen/ Jenny Cooper book?? I really hope so!

Message:I do hope that you like it, Bethan. It is all about Daisy and Poppy - how they were presented and about the boys that they fell in love with - in fact that is the name of book 2:
DEBUTANTES: IN LOVE

Message:Hi,

I am so excited for the new Debutantes book. I have written reviews on my school's site on Makewaves for the two Jane Austen books and Debutantes. I want everyone to read them because they are so good!!! Will you ever do another story about Jane Austen?

Message:Oh wow! I've actually been to Bath and the assembly rooms there. I can't wait for the Jane Austen festival in September!

Message:Liya: You can get Jane Austen's Juvenilia free on the Internet.
Some people think that 'Northanger Abbey' was probably the first book that she wrote and that the character of Catherine in it may have certain things in common with Jane Austen herself - like enjoying sliding down green banks with her brothers.
Growing up with lots of boys in the house must have influenced her, I would say. I've read other books written by women at the time and they are very boring in comparison!

Message:Wow! I love Pride and Prejudice, it would have to be my favorite one. I think you're a very dedicated writer and I shall continue to read the other books of yours.
Thank you :-)

Message:Liya: It occurred to me that I hadn't really answered all of your questions so now I've split your long message into two and pasted it into the message board.
I suppose the inspiration for the book was reading Jane Austen's stories she wrote when she was a teenager. They are so funny - a that I fell in love with her personality.
As for the plotting - well I did read a lot of books written about her life and about the time that she lived in - also for the second book I spent three days in Bath and walked around everywhere - it's marvelously preserved - look up Bath Assembly Rooms on the Internet and see how wonderful they are - and imagined what Jane would have done there.

Message:My mother was ill recently and super bored, so I let her read the book once I finished. Well, she loved it almost as much as I did! I love the way it has been plotted out/written so well and how you use the language they would at the time. What inspired you to write these books and wh at sort of/how much research did you do?
Thanks :-)

Message:I really loved your book I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend. I was so absorbed in the book and just couldn't put it down! I can honestly say that it's my favorite book so far.
My friend introduced me to the book and suggested I read it asap. She seemed to really adore the book, so I began it straight away and instantly fell in love!
But it got better... then my friend told me that you had written a second one! I was so excited and couldn't stop jumping with excitement. Right now i'm reading Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend and wanted to cry with happiness at every page.
I guess I just want to say thank you for writing such fantastic books!

Message:Liya: That was a lovely message - thank you very much for all the nice things that you said. You know, I really enjoyed writing those Jane Austen books. I did a lot of research and somehow when I read the funny stories that Jane wrote when she was young - well she really came alive to me as a character.
I'm so pleased your mum liked them too!

Message:Um, I apparently have too many words so I have to send my message to you via Story Book, hope that's not a problem :-)

Message:Just send it here, Liya.

If you want it to be private then just send it to the Story Club. Then only I read it.

However, most of the people who write in here are interested in other people's ideas and points of view, so unless it's something very private, I would prefer if you would write your thoughts here.

Message:Hi Cora!
I don't know where to begin... first of all, I think this guestbook is a fantastic idea and second of all, I was wondering what your e-mail is so that I can send you a proper letter. I can't find it anywhere on the website. Thanks :-)

Message:Caolan: I'm sure that you are looking forward to the holidays - they'll soon be here. I'm looking forward to them, also, although it's a long time since I have retired, but I look forward to having my grandson from London come and stay with us.

I've certainly written and had published more than 45 books - I stopped counting when I got to that number.

Message:Thank you Cora for your reply. My Mum and Dad picked the name out of the newspaper a few days before I was born :) I will definitely buy the book and read it in my holidays! My sister and I were wondering how many books altogether you wrote? I like writing myself...maybe Ill do it when I get older.

Message:What a very unusual name you have Caolan - I've never heard of it - and i think it sounds lovely.

'Wolf in the Midnight Forest' is another book that I wrote about dogs. It is about a beautiful dog that I owned, called Wolf and it is about him when he was a puppy.
