One of my very favorite authors is Georgette Heyer. I have a Georgette Heyer list here with my reviews and my collection which I have been neglecting of late. So, to get my groove on and to reinspire me to get back into reading a favorite author, Laurel of Austenprose is offering a grand event for all Heyer lovers and to convert all those who are still Heyer virgins.
Please join me and many other Heyer fans as we participate in the month-long event of ‘Celebrating Georgette Heyer’ at Austenprose – August 1st – 31st, 2010, which I am so happy and appreciative to have been asked to participate alongside so many fantastic bloggers, of which I am so happy to have a list of new blogs to watch.
