    We’re taking a wee break to work on the second half of the season and make it as good as it can possibly be. We’ll be back in a few months’ time with episodes 13-25 to finish telling Georgette’s story and solve the mystery of why her books have yet to be made into films. In the meantime, read the books on our reading list, and rate, review and recommend!

    Sara-Mae talks to Jojo Thomas – a trained Co-Active coach, and master hypnotist, plus Aiden Truss. He’s a novelist and copywriter, who is into sci-fi. Will either of them fall for Heyer’s delightful, frothy classic? The score so far is six yays to two nays.

    Also this week, Georgette faces the media at a Tatler party. She and Pat have a gossip about the literati, and to her chagrin, Georgette is mistaken for Dame Edith Bagnold…

    The Quiet Gentleman

    In this week’s book club episode on The Quiet Gentleman, we try and convert ‘corporate misfit’, competitive power lifter and comedian, Dom Patmore, as well as Sara-Mae’s cousin Talitha, who is also a digital strategy mogul and yoga teacher.

    Movie magic: Andy Paterson and Peter Buckman

    This week we chat to film producer Andy Paterson and agent for Georgette Heyer’s estate Peter Buckman, as we try to unravel the mystery of why Heyer’s books haven’t been adapted for the screen. Andy, who has produced such luminous hits as Girl With A Pearl Earring and The Railwayman, chats to us about his latest project, and Peter Buckman elaborates on the more frustrating elements of metamorphosing a book into celluloid…

    Heyer Today, the most epic literary podcast ever made, continues with our 4th book club episode. Our convert tally is 3/4 so far, but will this week’s victims, Robert Scott (Global VP of Finance at Impact) and the very right Reverend Caroline Risdon, say yay or nay to our Regency queen?
    Meanwhile, Georgette and her son, Richard, are in the Albany cellars as the doodle bugs fall on London. Luckily, JB Priestley, GB Stern, Graham Greene, Margery Sharp, Harold Nicholson and Edith Evans huddle beside them.

Heyer Education

I’m thoroughly enjoying Heyer Today. Not only do the episodes include interviews with knowledgeable Heyer fans, but there’s a sense of lightheartedness in the presentation. I love being educated on Heyer’s life and books, and I plan to make a push to read more by this fabulous author. Keep the episodes coming!

Amazing Season on Georgette Heyer

This is an amazing podcast featuring the delightful books of the reigning queen of Georgian and Regency romance, Georgette Heyer. Starting from the first episode, where “the” Stephen Fry waxes eloquent on being a fan of Heyer’s work, I have listened to the four episodes so far with excitement and joy. The production quality is superb, the host is superb, and the interviewees are varied and knowledgeable and include greats, such as Jen Kloester, Heyer’s biographer. This podcast is a must-listen for fans and newbies alike.

La Grande Georgette

So happy to finally have some light shed on Heyer’s genius! She is a favorite author of mine for years now and finally I feel vindicated 😊
