    Where/when is this movie, Austenland, showing in the Salt Lake area?

    Although she didn't mention it in the article, Shannon Hale, took her infant twins with her to England for the filming of "Austenland." She is a "make it happen" and dynamic personality. Even though I haven't read the book, I am planning to view the film. My favorite book of hers is "Princess Academy", a Newbery Honor winner, which I think would make a great movie!

    For every book that ends on Hollywood screens there must be ten thousand disappointments, mine being one of them, with a 2006 trilogy, five or six years in the writing, "Rocky Time In Philly" which chronicles character Rocky out of boxing, down and out, broke, and without job skills, trying to make it in a jobless economy, Sound familiar? The bottom line; Rocky becomes a champion again; as a human being. Agents are more difficult to find than the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but it was fun and gratifying, kept me off the streets and out of trouble, but had to go the self-publishing ego-trip route. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. At least it is gathering dust on my book shelf.
