Georgette Heyer Sightings

Whilst we here have been indulging in Georgette Heyer season, there have also been couple of other interesting posts I have come across about Heyer that I thought I would share.
The first was over at Random Jottings of a Book and Opera Lover, where Elaine talks about two of the new batch of releases from Sourcebooks, Black Sheep and Lady of Quality.

As an aside, I also feel compelled to mention that there is also a giveaway at that blog of Sarah Bower's new book which is being released in the UK next month called The Book of Love. Having really enjoyed The Needle in the Blood, I am definitely looking forward to reading this book!

The second sighting was at The Good, The Bad and The Unread where author Lynne Connolly has written a post telling why she is crazy about Georgette Heyer and where she talks about Heyer's "unique and special voice" and looks at Heyer's role in creating the Regency romance subgenre.

Another aside....we reviewed one of Lynne Connolly's books, Yorkshire, and there is another review post waiting in draft for when we either have a quiet moment during the Season, or for when the Season is over and we all need to have a little rest!

Enough asides.....we hope you are enjoying Georgette Heyer Season so far, and don't forget that if you leave a comment on any of the Georgette Heyer Season posts, or blog about the Season you will be in the draw to win one of three books. Alternatively, if you are inspired to want to do a guest post for us you will go into the draw to win the Heyer book of your choice! Full details of the giveaways are here.
