  1. Probably not a book I would normally read, but all your stuff is always so helpful and I always get some new tool for my writer’s toolbox. Guess I will be reading Jane Eyre now.

    • Jane Eyre isn’t a faultless book by any means, but it’s definitely one I would recommend to anyone wanting to further an understanding of the writing craft–whether you read it with my annotations or not!

  2. Wow. That’s kinda like having your name under Henry Fonda’s on a movie marquee. It is a “chewy” read, but your annotations make it clear that even 19th century writers employed the same story elements and structure that make for succesful books in our day. Congratulations! This is an awesome opportunity for you.

      I know, right? Charlotte Bronte and Diana Gabaldon on the same cover. And then there’s little ol’ me! :p

  3. It looks fabulous, Katie! And my ‘sneak preview’ suggests it’s going to be a wonderful resource. 🙂

  4. and NOW you even have more street cred…So nice.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says:

      I’d have done it for no street cred, to be honest. I learned so much myself in writing it. But the cred’s nice too. 😉

  5. Hi,


    The Bronte sisters are the best and I have learned a lot reading their books. So, I look forward to reading Jane Eyre again with your writer’s point of view.


    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says:

      I agree. Wuthering Heights is also a great one to study. Every time I read it, I appreciate it more.

  6. I’m impressed! Both with the cover and with you … can’t wait to get my copy of this. It will be interesting to see what you’ve uncovered in the writing of this classic.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says:

      I hope you enjoy it – and I hope it will encourage you and other readers to dig deeper into other classics as well.

  7. Thanks for the mention! I had a great time working on this; I can’t wait to get my copy and reread it with your annotations.
