>‘Celebrating Georgette Heyer’ at Austenprose – August 1st – 31st, 2010

>

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.

The Promo From Austenprose:

Stylish, witty and historically accurate, novelist Georgette Heyer has been delighting readers with her romantic comedies for eighty-nine years. In honor of her birthday on August 16th, Austenprose.com http://www.austenprose.com will feature a month long event ‘Celebrating Georgette Heyer’ featuring thirty-four book reviews of her romance novels, guest blogs, interviews of Heyer enthusiast from the blog-o-sphere, academia and publishing and tons of great giveaways.

Our very special guests will be Heyer expert Vic Sanborn of Jane Austen’s World and Deb Werksman, acquiring editor of Sourcebook Casablanca and the catalyst in re-introducing Heyer to a new generation of readers.

  1. Sounds great.I wish I had the organizational skills it must have taken to get that put together.Wow!

  2. Thanks for the link to Living and Loving in CA.I hate to admit it, but I have never read Georgette Heyer. Have heard many great things about her. I'll have to check this out.

  3. Look at all of these fab bloggers! The organizational skills as echoed above dazzle me to no end. I look forward to checking in on the fun and matching wits with the bon ton 🙂
