Some exciting news for any Georgette Heyer fans out there – throughout August, Austenprose will be hosting a month long celebration of Heyer’s work! I feel honoured to have been asked to take part in this event as I’m still very new to Heyer and have so far only read two of her books.
Here is the official announcement of the event from Austenprose:
‘Celebrating Georgette Heyer’ at Austenprose – August 1st – 31st, 2010
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 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.
The festivities start August first with a review of the newly re-issued Georgette Heyer’s Regency World, by Jennifer Kloester. Don’t be a wet goose. Chase away that fit of the blue-devils by attending this bon ton affair.

My review of The Masqueraders is due to be published at Austenprose on Wednesday August 4th. I hope you enjoy the celebrations!
