Georgette Heyer, the “Queen of Regency Romance,” is one of the most beloved authors of all time, and Sourcebooks couldn’t be more thrilled to be her North American publishing home: all 52 of her delightful novels are back in print! Over the years we have come to find that 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. We LOVE hearing these stories from fans, and what better time to sing the praises of one of our favorite authors then on the anniversary of her 110th birthday! In light of the anniversary, Sourcebooks wants to ask readers: “How did YOU discover Georgette Heyer?”With that said... How did you discover Georgette Heyer? For me, I am a relative virgin to her works. I was offered a chance some time ago to review a Heyer book (From Sourcebooks- they freaking ROCK!) and I read "A Death in the Stocks" and her writing style sucked me in. I could visualize the scenes, hear the words, the silliness and eccentricities of the characters made them beloved and I loved Inspector Hannaysyde! Every since that book, I became obsessed with all things Heyer! From her mysteries to her historicals and of course, her regency romances, her works have instilled a love of the Heyer world in many, many, many fans. Thanks to her birthday, one winner who comments and shares THEIR Heyer moment, will receive a surprise grab-bag prize pack of 3 different Heyer novels: 1 Romance, 1 Mystery, 1 Historical Fiction. The winner will be picked using a random generator and the books will be shipped, generously from Sourcebooks. Are you excited? Me, too!!! Also, make sure you follow the author page on Facebook.
