*applause*

That had me grinning! (which maybe I shouldn't say, what with the whole marriage-falling-apart thing)

Can't wait to read more! Your writing is wonderful, as always. :)

Amy

Love it!! Can't wait for more!

Laree

Ooo. I'm hooked already! Can't wait to read it - but if it doesn't get finished before D-Day, I'm willing to wait a while. I've done 3 single newborn days. I can NOT even fathom how hard those first months would be with two little ones!

Good Luck!

Heather S.

I'm looking forward to another delightful book and hearing the good news of a safe delivery for you!

Laurie

You have a way with words...
Happy Incubating!

Shannon Morris

Shannon, Shannon, Shannon! I'm clawing at my computer screen for more!!! Thanks for the teaser!

Sara

Yay! I'm way excited! I can't wait until it actually comes out!! :)

Laura Z M

Oh, my, oh, my. I love it already. Northanger Abbey may well be my favorite Austen. It's certainly the funniest. I do believe I'll go read it again now to hold me over until Midnight in Austenland's in print.

Best of luck with Project Incubator!

Connie Onnie

Just what I needed to help get me through this Friday afternoon at work.
PS I like her middle name.

Elinor

Woa! Compelling.

Jena

So exciting! This means I get to throw another awesome Austenland bookclub dinner party!

Sondy

Sigh. No fair taking my story and making it Charlotte's. (Except for the getting rich part. That would really really help.) It sounds like your new book might be great therapy!

Meg

Oh wow! I'm so excited to read it! I love the humor. My favorite line is "weak as a cooked noodle". I love how you can have these perfectly beautiful descriptions and perfectly silly ones and they work together to make the story heartfelt but also not taking itself too seriously.

Elenatintil

Got me laughing! Can't wait for the book! :)

Sophia

*flail* I love this so much. I can't wait to read the whole thing!

Fabulous prologue - love the nod to Northanger Abbey!

Rachel

I really like it. In such a short time, I already appreciate Charlotte's personality and emotions, already feel the weight of her sorrow, and already have hope that Austenland will wake her up to life again. Amazing!

I'm so glad you write.

Heather

As I sit here scrolling through the comments my 3-yr old points to the images of book covers in the margins and points out, "Hey that's Emma's (big sister's) book, and that's your book, and that's your book too, and that one!" Thanks for letting your books become mine, I'm thrilled to be adding one more title to my 'Favorites and Re-reads' shelf soon.

Juli

Please do keep going. . .

MelissaPete

Good grief woman, you have a gift! How long will we be kept in suspense??? :D I love that your brain is working while also feeding twins from your own body's resources. ;)

Heather Muir

Loved it! Thanks for everything you do. You cook those babies!

Christen

Poor Charlotte! I got so distracted while reading the prologue, when it was done, I actually attempted to turn the page, despite the fact that I didn't have a book in my hand. xD

And the Logsdon girls of Hagerstown send their prayers for little ol' Scylla and Charybdis.

Annette M

Ooooh so good! Have a milkshake and keep those projects cookin'!

Rinna-girl

that's beautiful and sad at the same time. I can feel the emotion pulling at me. LD

Dr. Sallie N. Cheinsteen

OH MY GOSH!! I LOVE IT!! LOVE IT! LOVE IT SO MUCH THAT I AM ONLY GOING TO WRITE IN CAPITAL LETTERS FROM NOW ON.

SERIOUSLY. I AM NOT OVER REACTING.

Amy

Can't wait to read it!

Amy

More, more! You've pulled me right in.

resugo

Awesome. I can hardly wait for Charlotte's adventure in Austenland. Eeek!

Cassie

Miss Shannon, why are you so absolutely perfect? Every time I read anything you've written I feel like you're my best friend. I wish this was real and not just my imagination. :) You are amazing. :)

Amy

In the last nine months I have certainly used Jane Austen to deal with my own version of a James disappearing. Cannot wait to read how it works out for Charlotte!

Ruby Diamond

Compelling! I can hardly wait...but guess I have to.

One question: do you think of her last name as being pronounced Kin-der (garten) or Kind-er (than thou)?

Emnia E.

Lovely!!!! It sounds like it's going to be ah-amazing! (as always!)

Since I haven't able to read this week (it's call math homework), I do have some comments to put in on rape.
I'm thirteen years of age, and no, have not actually been raped. BUT, I didn't know anything about it until I read a book by Sarah Dessen (she had no details in it), and was shocked--utterly shocked at the fact that people would actually do this! And only the next day I found that one of my closer relitaves was one who was raped by her boyfriend, and refused to speak out because she 'loved him'.

And it was sad, and upsetting. And the only way I could even remotly connect was through that book, to know the actual emotions of what was sorta going on. I think we NEED these books--to provide a peak for those of us that are more fortunate, and for those that need to know that they're not the only ones.

Not to even mention that there are worse books out there, that are even more graphic. Meg Cabot? Stephanie Meyer? They both go in and deep into some details, and to get rid of priceless books that could save a life is of utter stupidity! This world is so confused! And for a thirteen year old to see that, is a VERY sad thing!

Lizardbreath McGee

Oh, my. I do want to read this.

Erin

Loved Austenland. Charlotte's story sounds a bit familiar to me. I've felt that numb feeling of shock when you wake up one day are realize your marriage is over. Hope her story ends better than mine so far. Sigh. Perhaps you'd like to write a Mr. Darcy into the book of my life?

Libbi

!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!! Wow that was totally rockin.... can't wait to read more!!

Jen

Awesome! I love Northanger Abbey!

JoLee

I'm so excited to return to Pembrook Park. Austenland was such fun. By the way, my boy is named Beckett. He's 15-months-old. Good choice.

Katie

Oh wow. Fabulous.

I'm going to be going crazy now until it comes out!

Liz

Dear Twins,

Please stay put until your mother can finish her book. I really don't think I can wait for 2012.

Sincerely,
Liz

Deb Lamborn

Brava! Can't wait!

Sue S

That was marvelously done. So easy to picture. Unfortunately I guess. As all the rest eagerly looking forward to more.

Angela

I'm excited!!!! It sounds wonderful!

Josie

It doesn't really matter how awesome that prologue was, because I'm going to read all of your books anyway, but it certainly was good :)

Anna

Scylla like the horse in The Book of Lost Things???? [which is awesome btw}

Je Reve

Ooohhh. Yum. More, please!

Have fun with the Greek monster-girls

Miss Erin

Dahhhhh I want to keep reading...!

yakx

Are you going to name them Scylla and Charybdis?

aax

Are you going to teach them how to be water-speakers?

Kara Hunt

Heyy, just a random question, but how do you make a bad character not seem lame, I'm writing a story and I cant seem to get his character right.

Katie-wa

GIMME MORE!!! PLEASE!!!

Or just finish it all and get that baby published! I am ever so eager to read it!

Ah, Jane Austen. The thought makes me smile and sigh. It makes me as happy as the thought of Shannon Hale. :)
