It is a truth universally acknowledged that Austen Admirers in possession of a smartphone want to search daily for new stories. It is also acknowledged that such Austen Admirers have little time to search, discover, and explore new novels, blogs, authors and fanfiction inspired by the works of Jane Austen.
My name is Angie - I’m a wife, mother and part-time web, graphics and app design who rediscovered her love of Jane Austen while recovering from surgery a few years ago. And much like Elizabeth Bennet’s love for Darcy, ‘I was in the middle of it before I knew it began.’
Being a part of Jane Austen’s community has allowed me ‘the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation.' What I have is passion, but I don’t have the time. What's a girl to do?
May I present the calling card for Austen Admirers? Austen Admirers is an RSS Reader designed to bring together authors, bloggers, readers and fans of Jane Austen and her works via smartphone applications. Users will be able to discover new authors, stories, blogs and information all in one application updated in real time. Scan QR Code to try it for yourself!
But, best of all? It will be FREE to download and to be listed in Austen Admirers. But only with your help.

Risks and challenges
The good news? The app is built - there is no risk. The purpose of the Kickstarter campaign is to pay hosting charges, and to make it available for everyone to download at no cost.
Any delays in project could come from Apple, Google Play, or Microsoft's acceptance getting it into their respective stores.
Once Austen Admirers is funded, bloggers and authors will be able to participate if they provide valid RSS Feed and image. If anything shows up incorrectly, they should be able to be fixed immediately. I'm confident that if any setbacks arise, I'll be able to work with this wonderful community to get it fixed ASAP!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
