OH MY FREAKING GOSH. I actually shrieked with joy when I read that last sentence of the first paragraph. I am SO HAPPY FOR YOU!! :D That is totally insane, and now I am off to finish Midnight in Austenland.


This is fantastic news!! I usually try to avoid Sundance but I'm going to try and get tickets.


So awesome! If I weren't states away, I'd find a sitter and be there. But as it is, I will just have to sit with bated breath for the theatrical debut. Congratulations!


Congrats! That is wonderful news!

Alysa (Ruby Diamond)

Yay! How wonderful! Totally going to try to get to Sundance... (we'll see about that).

Jenni Elyse

Yay! That's awesome! I hope it gets picked up by someone from Sundance so it can be shown in theaters!


Omgomgomgomgomg I've never been so happy to live in Salt Lake. Fingers crossed they show it at the Broadway downtown so I can skip the trip to Park City! Totes gonna be there either way!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Wow! I actually saw the Austenland/Sundance news mentioned in an article on Entertainment Weekly's website, so I came right over here to check it out! I've never been to Sundance - what a perfect excuse to brave it!!!
Congrats, Shannon!

Susan Kaye



Congratulations!!!! Can't wait to see it! (I'll find a way. :)


PS - If you COULD get tickets... might be a fun give away... if the person could get their own way to the theater... just a thought.

Oh, this is so exciting! I will have to try and get tickets to Sundance! Sounds like a blast. :)

Heather Muir

I am so excited! I registered as a local for tickets today! So excited to get the chance to see this. Might have to be a freaking awesome girls night! BEST NEWS EVER!

...I think I might have just died about eight times over. And never in my whole entire life have I been gladder to live in Salt Lke City. Never never ever. This is the best thing I have heard all month!!!

So cool! Congrats! I'll watch for pictures of you hanging with A-listers in Park City. :)


I'm so so excited I'm reposting this on my Facebook. If you need a hairstylist for the red carpet I'm there. Plus for sure going to the movie. I LOVE Sundance.


Yay yay yay! Very much hope this is a sign that soon Austenland will be in my local movie theater.


Oh! Shannon! I am so thrilled! I have already signed up to get tickets! It will be my little Christmas wish that I win the pick to get tickets!

Sarah J.

Hooray!!! So excited!


Congratulations, how wonderful!


And the book is going to be published in France in 2013 ! We are so happy about that ! Will you come to see us ???


Wow, wow, WOW!!! Congratulations, such exciting news! Oh please let it get picked up super fast and out in theaters right away, I'm so excited to see it!

Got so excited yesterday I forgot to comment, but HIP HIP HORRAY!!!!


So excited for you! That is enormously huge. Congrats.

Bonnie @  A Backwards Story

Congratulations, Shannon! That's great news! I hope AUSTENLAND is one of the critical darlings to come out of Sundance! <3


Congrats! Very happy for you!


Makes me sad I don't live in SLC anymore. Sad, sad days for me. This may be an obvious question, but what about just being able to rent it or buy it on DVD? I'd love the big screen, but I'll settle for getting to see it any way I can.




I'm so excited! I hope it comes out everywhere so I can see it too!

Malinda Crow

Yay!!! That is awesome news! I might just get tickets to see it at Sundance!




How do I get these tickets you have? I live on the Wasatch front and would love to go!

These film festivals are important events in the calendars of people who regularly attend cinemas or who simply love to watch a good movie. The fact that promising and renowned directors are awarded for their productions and film stars are acknowledged for the role they played in their respective films makes the movie scene more interesting. I had never heard of Sundance before reading your blog entry but have heard of Venice and Cannes before in the news.

Meanwhile, for fear of crossing Norquist and losing his favor, Republicans for years have been turning a blind eye to all his ties to shady Muslim individuals and groups. If they signed his tax pledge, they were effectively pledging also not to make trouble about the access and influence he was facilitating for people linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. Thus was removed the only possible effective counterweight to the Democrats’ active collaboration with Islamic supremacists.
