Four days. FOUR DAYS--- REALLY??!!

I know I say that it's unbelievable, but it really is hard for me to fathom the idea that my book is going ot be out on Thursday. I've taken Friday off as a vacation day, and I am crossing my fingers I actually see PRADA & PREJUDICE in stores.
 
As I think about it, I ponder who my core audience will be. YA's, certainly. But I do have to wonder how much Austen fans will be interested in it. And what they'll think of me borrowing a little bit of Jane-- if they'll expect PRADA & PREJUDICE to somehow live up to PRIDE & PREJUDICE, which of course I could never, ever in a million years, accomplish.

I was just looking at Amazon, and here are some of the books PRADA is bought "together with:

JANE AUSTEN RUINED MY LIFE
LOVE, LIES, AND LIZZIE (JANE AUSTEN IN THE 21st CENTURY)
LOST IN AUSTEN (DVD)
PRIDE & PREJUDICE & ZOMBIES
WHAT WOULD JANE AUSTEN DO?
THE MAN WHO LOVED JANE AUSTEN
DERBYSHIRE: A SEQUEL TO PRIDE & PREJUDICE
THE LADIES OF LONGBOURN: THE ACCLAIMED PRIDE & PREJUDICE CHRONICLES
NETHERFIELD PARK REVISITED: THE ACCLIMAIED PRIDE & PREJUDICE CHRONICLES
CONFESSIONS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT
SEDUCING MR. DARCY (Note: This is one of my fav romances!)
AUSTENLAND
ME & MR DARCY
PEMBERLY BY SEA
PEMBERLY MANOR
MRS DARCY'S DILEMMA
EMMA (DVD)
JUST JANE
CREATE YOUR OWN AUSTEN ADVENTURE
DRIVE & DETERMINATION
MR. KNIGHTLEY'S DIARY


I mean...holy smokes! Some austen fans are definitely buying PRADA & PREJUDICE. *Crumples into a pool of nerves and excitement*

I hope I'm half as entertaining as dear 'ol Jane!

Four days! I really really can't wait. I am a huge Austen fan but from the looks of the first few pages they posted on Amazon, I think Prada and Prejudice will be fun to read.

omg! Ms. Schneider!! :-)

I don't have my jacket-- I gave it to Mr. Parkert a few years after I graduated.

I DO still have my handful of pins for all the stuff I participated in. :-).
