Madison Street Publishing is pleased to announce that we have signed a contract with Scott D. Southard to publish his novel A Jane Austen Daydream. This witty story re-imagines Jane Austen’s life, blending fact with fiction and giving one of the world’s greatest authors the happily ever after that–in real life–she only experienced vicariously through her characters. Southard’s book is both a delightful read and a wonderful homage to Austen’s work, proving that America’s love affair with the writer of Pride and Prejudice is still going strong. A Jane Austen Daydream is slated to be released sometime in April.
Scott is also the author of the novels: My Problem With Doors, Megan, Permanent Spring Showers, Maximilian Standforth and the Case of the Dangerous Dare, and 3 Days in Rome. With his eclectic writing, he has found his way into radio, being the creator of the radio comedy series The Dante Experience. The production was honored with the Golden Headset Award for Best MultiCast Audio and the Silver Ogle Award for Best Fantasy Audio Production. Scott received his Master’s in writing from the University of Southern California. Scott can be found on the internet via his writing blog “The Musings & Artful Blunders of Scott D. Southard” where he writes on far-ranging topics like writing, art, books, TV, writing, parenting, life, movies, and writing. He even shares original fiction on the site. Currently, Scott resides in Michigan with his very understanding wife, his two patient children, and a very opinionated dog named Bronte.
