Many Film Versions of Jane Austen

Recently, I blogged about the latest film version of a Jane Austen novel to be released. I write Austen-related adaptation, as well as contemporary and Regency era books, but many of my readers come to me via an Austen film. They see the movie/TV adaptation and become hooked on the story lines.
In fact, on AustenAuthors.com, I shall be discussing the film’s language of various adaptations on the third Wednesday of each month. If this peaks your interest, I would love to talk specifics with you there.
