About the Author

The Lady Janies are made up of New York Times bestselling authors Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, and Jodi Meadows. They first met in 2012, when their publishers sent them on a book tour together, and they hit it off so well they decided to write My Lady Jane so they could go on book tours together all the time. Between the three of them they've written more than twenty published novels, a bunch of novellas, a handful of short stories, and a couple of really bad poems. They're friends. They're writers. They're fixing history by rewriting one sad story at a time. Learn more at ladyjanies.com.

Reviews

★ "Holds all the flavor of a juicy period novel yet with the addition of numerous, witty asides. Full of wry humor and laugh-out-loud commentary. The authors' affection for their source material is abundantly clear in this clever, romantic farce." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

★ "A delightfully deadpan deconstruction of a Gothic novel, with a ghost almost no one can see providing the commentary. Marvelously self-aware and almost too clever for its own good." -- Booklist (starred review)

★ "A madcap story of ghosts, possession, revenge, and murder. Humorously blends fact with fiction and offers a gentler, more hopeful outcome for Charlotte, her siblings, and her heroine." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Reader, it delighted. A fun, supernatural mashup of different literary novels that shines on its own merit." -- Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR MY LADY JANE: ★ "Wacky, irreverent, and just plain fun. This fantasy-adventure politely tips its hat to history before joyfully punting it out of the way. An utter delight." -- Booklist (starred review)

★ "An uproarious historical fantasy that's not to be missed." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Gleefully anachronistic comedy." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Three cheers for this well-written and rollicking revision of history full of timely mannerisms and bold adventure. Those who enjoy clever humor, colorful fantasy, and light romance will savor each page." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"The Tudors meets Monty Python. Prepare to laugh and gasp and clutch your pearls." -- Tahereh Mafi, New York Times bestselling author of the Shatter Me series

"History, humor, and unexpected magic come together in this marvelous story." -- Jessica Day George, author of Silver in the Blood

"Adventure, intrigue, humor, and romance abound. A great choice for those who enjoy lighthearted, alternative history adventures." -- School Library Journal
