February/March Articles Featuring Bronte’s Mistress

It’s hard to believe that articles are being written about anything other than COVID-19 right now, but in the last few weeks, I’ve been delighted that my forthcoming novel, Brontë’s Mistress, and I have been featured in three articles.

First up, I wrote a piece for Books By Women, titled ‘The Brontë Myth: Why This Literary Family Continues to Inspire Writers Today’, about the extraordinary family of Victorian women novelists who continue to fascinate readers and history buffs today. I covered how the Brontës’ playacting, early deaths, physical and emotional isolation, and frequent literary rejections make them especially compelling to writers, and how I engaged with these topics in my own book.

Then, earlier this month, Brontë’s Mistress was listed as number one (!) on Pretty Progressive’s list, ‘13 Amazing Books Every Feminist Should Read in 2020’. I was grateful for the Women’s History Month shout out and excited to see my story, about a woman who is a ‘bad feminist’ by many modern measures, featured in the piece.

Finally, last week I, along with four other women writers, was interviewed as part of Bookstr’s 5x5 series, where the publication poses five questions to writers with something in common. In ‘5×5 International Women’s Month: Celebrating Amazing Female Authors’, I spoke about my perspective as a woman writer, my choice of genre, the advice I’d give aspiring writers, and how to celebrate Women’s History Month. I really enjoyed reading my fellow writers’ perspectives and being in such great company.

It’s an uncertain time to be releasing a book and I’m really grateful to the publications and people who are helping me bring Brontë’s Mistress to the world. If you’d like to feature the novel, or me, in your publication, on your social media, or on your blog, please get in touch. You can always reach me on Facebook, on Twitter, or on Instagram, or by commenting below.
