Hello, lovely readers! Please come out and support us and reading at the West Hollywood Book Fair on September 26! We will be in hanging in booth B5, chatting up Austeneers, zombie fans, and even Brontëites. We’ll also be premiering our premiere film, working title A Truth Universally Acknowledged. You may remember that we shot this at WonderCon, but production has been, um, delayed . . . to make you that much more excited . . . not because we got busy or anything . . . . Anyway, it will be so satisfying to have real data on this question at last! Bringing science to Austen, that’s us.
In the vein of films about books (has that been done at all?), check out the Book Fair’s awesome PSA on reading! Too bad they couldn’t fit Jane in, but maybe next time.

Attention, Austenacious community: Are you in San Francisco this Saturday? Are you going to WonderCon?
If so, keep an eye out for your sisters in Jane-ity!
Miss Osborne and Miss Ball will be cruising Moscone Center all day, performing ultra-scientific field research regarding two significant and commendable hypotheses: 1) the technical and possibly universal nature of the single man in possession of a good fortune, yet in want of a wife (it’s not what you think!), and 2) the difficulty of scoring face time with Jake Gyllenhaal (it’s . . . exactly what you think). If you happen to spot us across a crowded room (hint: here’s what we look like), do say hi!
You won’t find us in Regency costumes, Avatar-blue body paint, Sailor Moon costumes, or Storm Trooper masks—we’ll be undercover as incredulous civilians—but you might find us behind a video camera, working on a Very Special Episode of Austenacious (finally: we learn about our changing bodies!). Either way, don’t be shy—we’d love to meet you.
Otherwise, you know, it’s just us and Jake. And I don’t think anybody—least of all Jake—wants that.
