To help get the word out, several people active in social media, including myself, have been asked to host a pre-viewing party of the video on Friday, February 7 and live tweet the event. Follow me on twitter or check back here next Monday for a post about the event.
Here are some YA authors who are hosting their own Jane's Night In parties all over the US:
Jerusha Hess - Austenland director, tweeting from the official movie account
Margaret Stohl - author of Icons and co-author of Beautiful Creatures
Melissa de la Cruz - author of Witches of East End, Frozen, Blue Bloods
Becca Fitzpatrick - author of the Hush, Hush saga
Ally Carter - author of the Gallager Girls and Heist Society series
Jennifer Lynn Barnes - author of The Naturals and Raised by Wolves
Libba Bray - author of The Diviners, A Great and Terrible Beauty, Going Bovine
Barry Goldblatt - my illustrious agent
Check out these fabulous bloggers, readers, and movie watchers who will be hosting and tweeting:
Friday evening, check twitter for #JanesNightIn or #Austenland and join us for some laughs, photos, and vicarious festivity!
And a special plea: please don't pirate this movie. If you can't afford to buy or rent it, please request it from your library, thereby supporting the filmmakers and your local library. Hollywood measures success by $ made, and if movies like this don't make money, it makes it harder for other movies like this or other movies by women to get made.
