Back to the Future AND Fantasy Island? Oh Shannon, we must be kindred spirits (as a former owner of a DeLorean who helped organize a Fantasy Island-style DeLorean event...complete with Mr. Roarke, aka my husband in a white tux; an interactive mystery written by me; and a 17" Tattoo standup we made with cardboard and a tabloid-sized printout). Ahem. Needless to say, I'll be excited to read your latest work of brilliance!


I haven't read the first one yet...I guess I'll have to order it today, :)

Yay for the first comment!

Yahoo! One week! And I plan to see you in Indianapolis, friend. You bringing the babies?

Rebecca Belliston

How exciting! I've been an Austen fan for a very, very, very long time. I can't wait to read it!


This sounds so great! Your excitement is contagious! : )

Laree @ Ever Heard of Euless

Ok, I was intrigued by the book before, but now I CAN"T WAIT to read it even more!


I am so excited to go to one (if not both) of the signings in Orem. I may be contemplating dressing up all Austen-y...or maybe just making shortbread instead.

Yes, that scene in Back to the Future . . . "Oh, honey, your first novel!"

"It's like I've always told you, 'When you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.'"

You just made my inner geek come out. When my brother and I were bored during Stake Conference, we'd recite all the lines of Back to the Future in our minds, and compare with each other every few minutes how far we'd gotten, and which scene were were on.

Oh, yes, and so excited for your book!


This is so exciting! :) I can't wait to finally get my hands on Midnight In Austenland. It almost seems too good to be true...


I completely devoured the ARC you sent me a few weeks ago. It was a very clever and funny book, and I loved Charlotte's growth through it all. Northanger Abbey is my favorite Austen book so it was very fun to have a contemporary take on it. Maybe more people will be inspired to move on from Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility and try some of Austen's lesser read novels because of you! You never fail to impress me with your work! I hope you sell a boatload of copies!


Amazingly enough, we already have it on order at my library, so I already have it on hold. I'm really excited for this one.


I think its fantastic that you got sucked in by your own book! :) I can't wait to read it!!!


haha your getting sucked into austenland is just like me... i go through phases where i put my own songs on repeat on my ipod... and then people are like "what are you listening to?" and im like "uh... myself...."
hehe :)
can't wait for this!!!!! super super stoked!!!!


So excited!

Woohoo!! I just got a copy of your book to review from NetGalley... I'm going to CELEBRATE January 31st!! W/ a REVIEW... and I'd love to give a copy away, too!! Yay for your new book!!!! :-)

Dr. Sallie N. Cheinsteen

Yes!! Can I just say it again?


I am counting down the days.


My mom won an ARC copy through the facebook giveaway. After she read it I swiped it and thoroughly enjoyed it. So excited for the movie!


Reserved my copy today at B and N! Congrats-very exciting and can't wait!


Already preordered my copy of MIA and I can't WAIT!!!

P.S. When is the Austenland movie coming out??


I love reading those little bits about your books on your website, thanks for posting! Your new book sounds really intriguing.
Also, since I'm commenting on the 26, unless I'm mistaken...Happy Birthday, Shannon! You and your books make me happy. xo

Cheri Chesley

Awesome! My copy is ordered already and will be on its way as soon as they are released. And Happy Birthday, Shannon, from one twin mom to another :)


I got my ARC copy last week and immediately dropped everything to devour it myself! I loved it! Thanks so much for taking us back. I hope more ideas come to you, as I love Austenland and would jump at another chance to escape there. Can this please be real please? Loved the way it all wrapped up in the end as well (I won't spoil it) which makes me think this could actually be a reality! :)


I have to wait a few extra days because I pre-ordered the Kindle edition. But I'm still so excited. I can't wait to go back to Austenland!


I just wanted to say Happy Birthday! from another Jan 26th baby :) Happy Birthday!!

Glad I stopped by, because I forgot your new book was coming out next week! YAY!!!

Happy birthday! I'm so excited for my copy of Midnight in Austenland to arrive!!!


Dear Shannon,
I've always been inspired by your books. You have an amazing voice and intracate style that hooked me at the first page. I' ve always had a passion for writing, and aspire to continue my ambition in the future. As a seventh grade student, the idea of someday becomming as sucsessful as you often seems bleak. But your stories have helped me so much over the years. I only have to read a few words, and inspiration is reborn. You've always been a sort of idol for me, your writing has touched me in so many ways. So I thank you, and can't wait to read more of your work in the future.

Barbara Godun Bourgeois

I just finished Austenland yesterday. I'll have to check this one out.
