Georgette Heyer, the “Queen of Regency Romance,” is one of the most beloved authors of all time and Sourcebooks is the North American publishing home for all 52 of her delightful novels, which are back in print.
In light of what would have been Georgette’s 110th birthday anniversary on Aug. 16, Sourcebooks is hosting a birthday giveaway. I’m delighted to be part of that celebration and be able to offer 1 lucky visitor a surprise grab bag prize pack of 3 different Heyer novels: 1 romance, 1 mystery, and 1 historical fiction (US and Canada addresses only).
Fans of Heyer’s work all have “Heyer moments”—stories about how they discovered her, which novel is their favorite, how they used to sneak and read their mother’s copies, and so on. Sourcebooks loves hearing these stories from fans and what better time to sing the praises of a favorite author then on the anniversary of her birthday.
Sourcebooks is asking readers: “How did YOU discover Georgette Heyer?” You can participate (and enter the giveaway) by commenting on why you love Georgette Heyer and your own personal “Heyer moment,” or why if you haven’t read her novels why you want to start.
Readers can also join Sourcebooks’ special author page on Facebook to view regular specials and deals, some favorites lists, and tidbits of juicy Regency-era trivia. There will also be a special eBook promotion in honor of Heyer’s birthday.
In addition, readers can visit Heyer’s author page at Sourcebooks for more information on the author and her many books.
How did you come to first read Georgette Heyer? Do you remember the title of the first Heyer book that you read? If you’re not a Georgette Heyer fan, what draws you to her work now?
Be sure to comment by 8 p.m. (EST) Wednesday, Aug. 15, for a chance to win the prize pack featuring 3 of Heyer’s titles. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope your day is cool, safe and filled with a good book.
