Welcome to the New Syrie James Website

Jane Austen wrote her novels with a quill pen like this one

Hello dear readers,

I’m thrilled to share my new website with you today! I’ve been working with a fabulous team of designers at Authorbytes, and hope you’ll have fun browsing through my 13 published books, including three historical fiction novels about Jane Austen, my romantic thriller Dracula, My Love, and the Audie Award-winning The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Brontë. In addition, you’ll find my Victorian historical romance trilogy, a young adult paranormal series, contemporary romances, and a short story anthology.

Are you in a book club? If so, I’ve posted downloadable readers’ guides for six of my novels to help facilitate your reading group discussions. There are also excerpts from all of my novels, some fun podcasts, a Media Room page, and a Contacts page where you can send me a message directly.

To stay on top of all the info about my new books, please sign up for my newsletter, which will include exclusive content for newsletter readers only—such as previews of my next book, giveaways, and other bookish treats!

I’m excited to announce that I have a new blog! I look forward to the many opportunities this forum will bring to share thoughts and news on a wide range of topics, from my love of history, All Things English, photography, and travel, to tidbits about my ongoing research and novels in progress, and a bit of everything in between. I’d love it if you’d follow my blog. You’ll find the sign-up form at the top right corner of this page.

Thank you so much for visiting today. Please leave a comment and share your thoughts about my books or my new website. Take care, and Happy Reading!

    Welcome to blogging, Syrie! I love your work, as well as other Austenesque writers. Currently I’m reading The Merchant and the Rogue by Sarah M. Eden (not Austenesque, but 19th century), and next up will be Rosings Park by Jack Caldwell, which is Austenesque. I look forward to perusing the posts you’ve published so far, and the ones to come!

    Your fellow Janeite,
