Giveaway: Surprise GEORGETTE HEYER Title!

In honor of this week's royal wedding (congratulations William and Kate!) and thanks to Beth Pehlke and Sourcebooks, I have a special surprise for two lucky readers.  Just for replying to this post, you will be automatically entered in a drawing for a surprise Georgette Heyer title!

If you aren't familiar with her, here's a little tidbit about Ms. Heyer: 

Author of over fifty books, Georgette Heyer is the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, making the Regency period her own. Her first novel, The Black Moth, published in 1921, was written at the age of fifteen to amuse her convalescent brother; her last was My Lord John, published posthumously in 1975. Although most famous for her historical novels, she also wrote eleven detective stories.

An intensely private person, Georgette Heyer managed to become a bestselling author without aid of publicity - -she made no appearances, never gave an interview, and only answered fan letters herself if they made an interesting historical point. 

Georgette Heyer died in 1974 at the age of seventy-one.

Be sure to leave your email address with your entry so you can be notified.  NO EMAIL ADDRESS = NO ENTRY!

No P.O. boxes. No Military APOs. This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada only. My apologies to my overseas friends.

Contest to end on Saturday, May 14, 2011 at 11:59 P.M. PST and the lucky winners drawn by randomizer.org on Sunday, May 15, 2011.

Good luck!

I loved that pic of the little flower girl totally disinterested in the wedding of the century.

Kind of fun to speculate which Heyer title goes best with the event! Sprig Muslin? The Grand Sophy? Regency Buck?
