HAPPY 110th BIRTHDAY GEORGETTE HEYER: GIVEAWAY
It's no secret: I loooooooove Georgette Heyer. While I haven't indugled in as many of her historical novels or her mysteries, I am a die-hard fan of her Regencies. Next to Austen, she is the best author we have in this ilk!
I first read Georgette Heyer during the Toronto Blackout of 2003. There was no subway service, my bookstore had just been closed due to ...well... no power....and work was done for the day, so I rambled over to a park to wait for a ride and read Arabella under a tree. It was a few years until I started going all hard-core Heyer; but boy! did I ever.
I ration out Heyers so I always have more to read.
On this, her 110th Birthday, Sourcebooks ( and me! ) want to know your Heyer moment: whether it be when you first tucked into the pages of her wonderful novels or your favourite moment from one of her novels. Bonus points if you name your favourite hero: mine is Jasper from Venetia!
Comment and tell me and you have the chance to win a surprise grab-bag of 3 of her novels: 1 mystery, 1 historical and 1 of those gorgeous Regencies!
I will draw names from posters and the winner will be notified shortly!
The contest is open to Canadian and American readers.....
Meanwhile, DISCOVER HEYER for fabulous prices at the Sourcebooks website!
From August 14th until August 20th, a large selection of her e-books are on sale for 2.99! 2.99! Please go here to find your new favourite....
