Speaking of romance...

Jane Austen is the ORIGINAL bring-the-swoon lady, yo!  Why is she still such a force after all these years?  Not only are her books continuing to be made into films and television miniseries, but they have been lovingly adapted in countless novels.

Well now three young adult authors, no strangers to bringing the swoon themselves, are going to analyze the matter.  You can tune in and hear Shannon Hale, E. Lockhart, and Elizabeth Eulberg tonight at 8:00PM over at Figment!

If you are looking for some Jane tributes, check one of these out:
Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik
Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman
Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James

And if you're looking for a contender to Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy, check out Richard Armitage in North and South.  If your laptop doesn't burst into flames from the repressed Victorian lovepants action, then it's already broken.
