JANE IN JUNE goes on for me. I'm re-reading PERSUASION. I've recently posted twice on My JA Book Club, once introducing the novel and listing some simple questions from my precious book of quizzes, the second time today with some Thoughts on Anne Elliot, this month's heroine.
This event, hosted on Book Rat by Misty, is featuring interviews and great giveaways. Among the guest writers, my blogger buddy Jane GS, Jane Greensmith.
Here's her interview with Misty and the post with her double giveaway . I particularly loved reading her short stories in the collection Intimations of Austen. Read my review and my interview with Jane. Follow my links, comment and get a chance to get your copy of these jems of Austenesque pleasure.
Alexa Adams is another talented writer of Asten-based fiction, who is also a dear blogger buddy of mine, she wrote an entertaining guest post on Misty's blog, about the Concerns of a Crazy Janeite, that is herself! She is also giving away a copy of her First Impressions, A Tale of Less Pride and Prejudice which I had the pleasure to read and review not long ago, after receiving my signed copy directly from Alexa (my review and my interview). If you want to enter this giveaway, click here and leave your comment!
Don't forget the giveaways running on through all this month on Fly High! and My JA Book Club.

A NEW PERIOD FILM COMING SOON!
Now, since we are in an Austenesque mood, I 'd like to close this short posting of mine with some news about and images from a period film coming out soon and starring three Austen heroines! Keira Knightley (Lizzie Bennet 2005), Carey Mulligan (Kitty Bennet 2005) and Sally Hawkins (Anne Elliot 2007), as well as Charlotte Rampling and Andrew Garfield.
In his highly acclaimed novel Never Let Me Go, Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains of the Day) created a remarkable story of love, loss and hidden truths. In it he posed the fundamental question: What makes us human? Now director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo), writer Alex Garland and DNA Films bring Ishiguro's hauntingly poignant and emotional story to the screen.
As children, Ruth (Knightley), Kathy (Mulligan) and Tommy (Garfield), spend their childhood at a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. As they grow into young adults, they find that they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other, while preparing themselves for the haunting reality that awaits them.
